1. The ocean action simply can’t leave this top spot. While the offshore action tapered off a little this week, there is still exceptional quality to the bluefin tuna being caught on the overnight to two-day trips out of San Diego, with a 290-pounder reported on Tuesday this week. In addition to the big bluefin, there is still good action on yellowtail and yellowfin. For an update, check with 976-TUNA.com.
2. A pick for the kids (or the young at heart). The bite on bluegill at Apollo Park Lake is simply wide open with catches of 20 to 50 fish not uncommon. While most are small, the bite is simply wide open on just about any small bait or lure fished near the bottom beneath a float. For an update on this bite, contact Apollo Park at 661-940-7701 or Amaysing Fishing Bait & Tackle at 661-429-5824.
3. Castaic Lake’s striper bite stays in the top picks yet again this week. The fish are showing in limit-numbers at the buoy line and in Necktie Canyon, mostly on fresh sardines early and late in the day, but some fish are still busting on topwater for brief periods and trolling with umbrella rigs is also a good bet. The bluegill bite also is pretty much wide open outside Dry Gulch and in the lower lake. For an update on this bite, call the marina at 661-775-6232 (www.CastaicLake.com) or Tackle Express at 661-251-8700.
