PHOTO 1: Although offshore fishing has been shut down by winds, the inshore fishing, especially for sierra has been very good with schools of the speedy fish just about anywhere along the beaches, drop offs or around reefs and structures. Our amigos, Tim and Angela Farrell from Oceanside CA hold up a double pair.
INSHORE FISHING GIVES ANGLERS SOMETHING TO LOOK FORWARD TO IN BETWEEN STRONG NORTHERN WINDS
THE FISHING REPORT
Not much jumping around to do this week. Frankly, it was pretty tough to do much of anything. Even scuba divers were staying in rather than get bounced around and getting wet. The northern winds are expected to continue through this coming week as well.
Nothing unusual, that’s just the time of year. There’s a reason this is called W-I-N-T-E-R! There’s a reason not many folks come down this time of year so if you do, you just gotta roll with the punches and be flexible. Fortunately, most folks are pretty cool about it. Others come down thinking it’s gonna be like July…and it’s not. We think it’s COLD right now, but at 71 degrees during the day, it’s still better than most spots on the planet and a nice time to be in town.
As for the fishing, we’re still doing most of our fishing out’ve Muertos Bay. Sure, it takes and hour for us to shuttle you there, but the bay faces south so at least you’re relatively protected and the fishing is close…that’s the key. Inshore, there’s sierra; cabrilla (seabass), jack crevalle and snapper. Every now and then, you never can tell. We had one day where a batch of dorado moved in so our anglers got themselves a nice surprise. Pargo and bonito have also been moving in and out of the areas as well. So, there’s fish to be caught.
If you’re coming down, bring a sweatshirt, windbreaker or light jacket for those windy chilly mornings. You can always take it off!
We’re starting to take reservations for the upcoming whale watching season. Mid to late January until about mid-March, the California grey whales park themselves over in Magdalena Bay by the thousands. It’s a great event if you’ve never been up close on one of the beautiful animals. If you’re like to check this out, bring your family and give us a shout for more details.
