Question: Has the recent weather patterns – tropical storms in the Pacific and very warm weather in Southern California – impacted fishing?”
Fisher Joe Sarmiento, founder of the blog socalsalty.com:
Southern California anglers have a lot of friends in Baja Mexico and our thoughts and prayers are with them as they deal with the terrible weather down below. That being said, the hurricanes affecting Baja have been a boon to Southern California anglers as these weather systems have pushed up a lot of warm water, bait fish, and the game fish that prey on them. Boats based as far north as Channel Islands Sportfishing in Oxnard are catching exotics right now!
