The nearshore action for the half-day fleet all along the coast has been generally very good from San Diego to the Channel Islands. Most of the fishing is for calico bass on all the kelp lines, with very good jags of barracuda fishing. The only factor seeming to slow the barracuda right now is wind, which has been rolling over the water in some areas and kicking the barracuda out and down for a day or two, until the clarity and surface temps come back. While few boats are running, the twilight sand bass action is also very good, if the wind hasn’t stalled that bite, too.
