SALTON SEA: While the storm and cool weather early this week knocked the bite in the head, the tilapia action had been very good much of last week and through the weekend with lots of 15 to 40 fish catches. The warm weekend forecast should kick that bite right back into gear. The fish have been from .5 pound to 1.25 pounds, and the bite has been on small nightcrawlers pieces fished right on or near the bottom. All the reports right now are coming from the jetty at the State Park headquarters and the free fishing jetty at the refurbished Salton Sea Yacht Club.
