Picking at the edge

Weekly fish report

½ Day — ¾ Day: The local ½ day boats are still either picking at the edge for Rockfish, Sculpin and Bass or looking for Yellowtail deep off the canyon edge. ¾ day rides are focusing on the strong Yellowtail and Lingcod bite at the Coronado Islands.

1 Day to 2.5 Day: Boats fishing off Ensenada to San Martin are getting steady action on Yellowtail, Rockfish and Lingcod. Yellowtail are being caught up the coast to Malibu, with kayak and private boaters finding good action on the iron. Bluefin Tuna and good numbers of Yellowtail are still holding in the Cortez Bank area.

Long-Range — Baja: No change from last week, as the long-range boats are enjoying a successful winter season at the Hurricane Bank with lots of Yellowfin Tuna to well over 200 pounds. On their way up and back, the Wahoo south off Mag Bay are providing non-stop action and the Yellowtail and White Seabass at Cedros are adding to the variety.

Freshwater: Worms, Power-bait, mini jigs, spoons and spinner-baits are all getting results on the Rainbow Trout. Largemouth Bass are showing in spring mode a bit early and watch for the Shell-crackers working the bottom in shallow water around the brush. As usual, a few nice wintertime cats have been caught nipping at the power bait.

Whale Report: The gray whales continue to pass close to San Diego in their record-setting migration this year. Many good sightings and close encounters are being reported by all the whale-watch operations.

Trout plants: 02/10/15 Cuyamaca (1200), 02/11/15 Dixon (3000), Wohlford (1500), Cuyamaca (1200) 02/13/15, Santee Lakes (1000)
