SAN DIEGO EXOTICS STAY HOT

The fishing for San Diego’s three-quarter-day to two-day fleet hasn’t slowed down for the exotics, but the landings report minimal passenger loads. It seems that anglers aren’t getting the message that the fishing is still great. Royal Polaris was out on a 1.5-day trip earlier this week, and 31 anglers caught 21 yellowfin up to 65 pounds, limits on yellowtail (with 165 fish), nine skipjack, and 11 dorado. Most ocean observers can’t remember ever seeing this kind of action this late into November. It’s the season that doesn’t want to end, and the fish are likely to stick around into at least the middle of the month. Too many anglers have hung up their saltwater gear way too soon this year.
