Great week across the board for us great opportunities in many areas

Along the coast the water back in the 70-71° range.  Bass fishing showed some improvement with the red tide about gone.  Classic flyline fishing for the calico bass and plenty of bites coming off the rigs fishing the bottom for the sand bass, sheephead and sculpin.

3/4 and all day trips this last week focused on the offshore opportunities.  We saw some good tuna chances all week.  Both with the bluefin and yellowfin.  Sonar schools, fish on kelps, bird indicators , foam spots it all got the boats stopped up this week.  Flyline setups with 25lb line for the more finesse days and some days the 40lb was bit just fine.
Come with a suitable rod and reel and the right sized hooks and the fluorocarbon was a help too.  Some nice dorado kelps as well.  Just good opportunity within 25 miles of the harbor.

The Fury had excellent fishing as well.  1.5 day returned yesterday AM with easy limits of bluefin at night as well as some great shots at the yellowfin during the day.  They’ve been very busy and have had some great dorado days too.  Well it’s all relatively close so we had a great vantage point to get on it all week.
