1. While the bluefin tuna could probably stay in the top bite slot this week, there’s just too little fishing pressure to make that call. The half-day yellowtail bite for the San Diego Landings has remained excellent with five-fish limits reported some days. These are mostly the smaller 3- to 6-pound fish, but the action is very good for the season. For an update on the action, check the reports and audio on 976-tuna.com.
2. The Lake Skinner striper bite has been pretty solid for the past three weeks for anglers fishing cut baits at or near the inlet, but for anglers have have been able to dip live shad early in the morning, the bite has been exceptional. While most of the fish 2- to 5-pounder, there have been stripers to nearly 10 pounds reported in the past week. For an update on this bite, check with the marina staff at 951-926-8515.
3. The DFW has a bunch of brown trout that it will be stocking out on waters where they can be planted, and Silverwood Lake got a 2,000-pound plant of these fish this past Friday. For anglers who know how to fish for browns (skip PowerBait, and think small lures or drifted nightcrawlers), the action has been very good with a number of limits of fish to two pounds reported. Another DFW trout plant was slated for this week. More browns? For an update on this bite, check with the marina at 760-389-2299.
