Epic Offshore Tuna Fishing

Epic offshore tuna fishing going on right now! The yellowfin are in big schools and actually responding and biting wide open. Once we find them, it's non-stop action 'till we either get limits or the clients tire out. We have had several stops where we load the boat and the fish stay with us for 3 hours.

Anyway, now is the time to book a trip! Tight lines, Captain Clowers!

San Diego and Northern Baja Fish Report. 4-19-16

Can you say TUNA & YELLOWTAIL? Thats what's going on offshore right now!!! We have had big bluefin right in our backyard and down the Baja Coast. Also, the yellowtail bite at the islands and down the coast is going full speed. The bluefin are being found under birds and meter marks. It's amazing when you get in the right area the ocean erupts with big boiling bluefin from 50 to 100 lbs. It's a sight to see let alone to tie into them big boys. On the yellowtail seen its a variety of ways to catch them. We've been catching them on bait, surface iron and slow trolling. We have great weather now with good flat calm seas. It's like summer in san diego now and we have tuna in April. All I can say is its time to book a trip either now or at least get on the books because its going to get filled up. 

OH! And if your looking to fish the bay it's going full speed too. Bonefish, bass, halibut bay sharks are all biting. Hope to see all of you on the boat hooking fish and having a good time.

Offshore / Islands Fishing Report 4-17-16

The offshore season is getting off to an EPIC start. There are big bluefin right in our back yard, meaning big 60 to 100 lbrs. The fish that are close are coming up on bait and showing themselves. I mean big schools boiling and frothing the water just turns white with foam. We have been getting them on surface iron. They are so thick that you can feel your Iron bounce off there backs. We have even foul hooked some. The fish that are down on the 60 mile bank are smaller grade from 15 to 30 lbs and are chewing sardines on plunker bite with light line must have fluorocarbon in the 15 to 20 lb. They are also eating colt snipers and flat falls. We have some good weather this week and they will be chewing!!!

On the yellowtail action there is some in the 10 lb class at ribbon kelp those fish are biting the rapala, surface iron and sardines. I troll the rapala on 50 lb to get them in the boat quick due to the sea lions. All bait rods and surface iron are 40 lb and they are not line shy. Its crazy when you get the right school they come to the boat and its all surface and bait fishing till the sea lions get on us. I have been doing the cat and mouse with the sea lions. We get a few fish then run away from the sea lions wait till they come to our boat then run back over to the fish catch a few more real quick. There is some nice grade yellowtail at north island and the rockpile as well. Them fish are all under birds. Surface iron is the key to getting the breezers under birds. All I can say if you want some good fishing with good weather now is the time to book a trip. Hope to see you on the water.

San Diego Bay Fishing Report - March 2016

San Diego Bay is bitting full speed right now. Everything is biting: Bonefish, leopard sharks, bat rays, shovel nose, halibut, and the bass. This time of year is real good because all the bane fish and bay sharks are on the chew. We have been getting the bonefish on gosh shrimp with dropshot rig . All the sharks are coming on dead sardines and mackerel. Halibut on 3 to 5'' swim baits. And the bass on swim baits and the gulp. The surface temp is 63 to 66. I have had 4 trips this week and everybody is having a blast out there. All I can say if you want a good fun fishing charter, you can't beat the bay right now.

Tight Lines, Captain Clowers.
