Fishing Picks of the Week

1. The continuing bite on bluefin tuna is simply unprecedented. While it’s not for 100-pound class and bigger fish like earlier this year, the action is steady on 20- to 30-pound class fish and two-fish limits are easy on overnight and 1.5-day boats running out of landings from San Diego to Los Angeles.

2. The striper bite at Quail Lake has continued pretty good for anglers fishing frozen shad in the inlet after walking around the north side of the lake. The bait is best fished under a large slip bobber to the angler can cast out into the current and let the bait drift through the feeding zone.

3. A sure-bet for bringing home a quality bunch of fish has been the exceptional rock cod action on half-day to overnight boats along the Southern California coast. The best action has been on the landings from Oxnard to Morro Bay with 10-fish limits common on trips from these landings. There are also usually quite a few quality lingcod and nice catches of whitefish to go along with the cod. For an update on the action, check the reports and audio on
