The Excel is departing at 8 am this morning on itss way south for a 17 day trip with 18 Anglers aboard. They'll be focusing on the Revillagigedo Islands area for cow Yellowfin Tuna.
The Red Rooster III headed out yesterday on their 5 day trip to the Cedros area and should be trolling this morning somewhere off the Baja coast south of San Quintin. Though this is usually a Yellowtail trip, it will be interesting to see if any Tuna are still holding north of Baja Sur.
The Yellowtail are still around up and down the So Cal coast, which is remarkable for late December. This time of year, the focus is usually on Rockfish and the tap-water for Trout, Bass and occasional Cats. Though those lakes are starting to produce and the Rockfish, Sheephead and Lingcod are chewing well on the local spots, having decent odds of boating a Yellowtail is a pretty good way to wind up 2014 and begin 2015.
Hopefully, this cold snap will fire up the trout in the lakes without pushing the Yellows south. It's nice to have options.
