Get Your Gear Ready for The BITE

The bite is on! If you haven't been on the water yet, you better start getting your gear together.

Fishing reports off the Los Angeles area are reporting yellowtail averaging 15 lbs are coming in from the Islands. We recommend 20, 25 & 30 lbs test along with #2 hooks, sliding sinkers, and 6-8 oz torpedo leads. Bring also some of iron to throw cause you never know. The calico bass, sheephead and perch are biting too!

Today the Pursuit out of the 22nd St landing reported 11 yellowtail, 2 halibut, 48 calico bass, 2 barracuda, 16 sheephead, 44 whitefish, 3 sculpin, 66 perch and 110 calico bass released. That's a good day on the water.

If you are feeling adventurous and can take extra time off, this is a good opportunity to try some multi-day trips. The reports out of the San Diego area are coming in with limits of yellowtail that are being caught in the 1.5 to 2 day range along with the chance of blue fin tuna.

On the multi-day 6 - 8 days trips, reports of good size blue fin from 40 - 90 lbs are coming in along with schools of yellowtail in the area.

The Intrepid is currently on a 8 day trip and is making its way back to port on June 16. As of June 12th they were reporting a good bite along with wonderful weather. They had been on the hunt for Yellowtail, but the bite wasn't what they hoped for. Here is what they said,

"It is only a matter of time when this place is going to go off with some incredible fishing from the sign we saw this evening."

Hopefully that "sign" is on our upcoming trip on the Intrepid. We have a few spots remaining on our BFG sponsored 8-day trip out of H&M landing leaving July 5th, what a great gift that would make for dad! Here's a few more details about the trip:
