SAN DIEGO OVERNIGHT UPDATE

While the offshore counts were down much of the past week and through the weekend, mostly thanks to some wind and poor tides, anglers on the 1.5-day and two-day boats were still finding a good pick on yellowtail on floating kelp, along with a few dorado and some bluefin tuna. A typical score was posted by Ocean Odyssey out of H&M Landing, where the 23 anglers on board had 55 bluefin, 13 yellowtail and a dorado July 23. Condor out of Fisherman’s Landing, with 20 anglers on a 1.5-day trip, had 110 yellowtail, six dorado and five bluefin July 24. Overall, the bite seemed to be getting better this week as we move into the Aug. 1 full moon.
