Been a very busy month with lots of trips
Fishing has been unpredictable pretty much the only constant has been San Clemente Island Island that Ive fished 5 times this month for good bass fishin.
The beach has been plaged with big swings in water temp. Good fishing for a few then terrible fishing for a few
Offshore has been a rollercoaster as well. So far we have released 2 Marlin this month and had a few fair trips on the kelp paddy Yellowtai and dorado along with a few blanks
September looks to be shaping up as the month that will really get the local offshore bite going and stabilize the inshore water and get the bass going for a good fall bite.
Lets hope so

Fishing has been pretty tough the last few trips for the bass We had some wind last week that rolled the water and dropped the temp down. Things are coming back around fished offshore the last two days for fair to good kelp paddy fishing for Yellowtail and a few of the guys are starting to catch some Dorado. Its not a sure thing but if you find the right one you get a good shot, most of the fish are about 12lb but I did get one yesterday solo that went 25.

This has been a busy week
Started off with good friends Bill and Dave fishing the weedless baits up at PV
Fathers Day I fished with Mark and his son Mark up in LB Harbor and had a great day cathing Spotties and nice Halibut
The next day I was off to Catalina with Rob and Chad.Supper fun bass fishing along with my personal best Halibut
caught on a swimbait in the kelp.
Then off to Clemente with Robby. We had some of the most explosive top water fishing ypu could hope for.
Dropped him off at Catalina to meet up with his family who took the flyer over then ran back to Cat and picked him and his daughter Marly up and we ripped up the front side of the Island catching some really nice bass along with Marley’s first Yellowtail What a great week Great weather and Great friends

Two trips this week, James Little brought out his Dad and Buddy Frank for a trip to San Clemente island on Sat
We fished down the back in beautiful weather and big bitting bass. Topped of with Franks 9lb Calico, lots of 5 and 6lb fish on the top and not one boat seen all day.
Stuff on the beach has slowed down this week. A big swell and some west wind had dropped the water temp down to the low 60s Should rebound pretty fast.

Fished the beach with Bob and two of his friends today. We had to push this trip back due to weather a few times and glad we did
With the water warming up ( almost to fast) things were looking good, find the conditions and find the fish.
Started out on some deep hard bottom where rumor had it some nice fish were bitting. No bass but a beautiful Croker for Bob, we had one more good fish on but dumped it.
Fished it till about 9:30 then moved inside to fish the bass. Good uphill current, clean and 68 degree water had the bass on a tear. We caught them on everything 5 and 7in swimbaits, hardbaits and the Iron all caught fish. The best thing I saw were clouds of followers comming up behind hooked fish and bass blowing up under the terns. Havent seen this up here in the last two years.
Cant wait to get back out there.

Good friend Mike came down this week from San Louis Obispo with his brother in-law Pete
Mike and I have fished together many times before but Pete was new to the salt.
Fishing is slow to get going this season and even though the water temp was 64 the bass were a little touchy .Some of the fish inhaled the 7in baits while other bites were as light as a feather on the small stuff.
All in all a fun day everyone caught a few nice ones, a bunch of small ones and lost a few good ones.

With spring here the trips are really coming in.
Henry called and wanted to take a few of his friends over to Cat
None of them have ever been to the Island.
We have fished the beach together before and I knew they would have a blast at Cat
The fishing was great no giants but lots of 3 to 4 lbs fish.
Ended up with well over 50 fish fishing the backside of the Island
