Welcome to the NEW Fishdope website!!

Be sure to check out all the new features like all the different charts and the Bite zone chart.

Should be interesting to see how this works out in regards to where the fish are biting.

 

We are still working out the bugs that happen when ever you open up a new website.

Thank you all for your patience during this process.

Santa Monica bay

Some better Lingcod fishing on the Short banks along with the regular Rockfish.

Still slow inshore with only a handful of Sand bass showing.

No new reports of any of the Halibut up at Twin Roads lately.

Catalina Island

Lots of Squid everywhere. Its all over the frontside of the Island. The stuff is easy to make too. Maybe to easy. The stuff is floating thick and this will clog up you bait pump if your not careful.

Yellowtail are still at the Island but are going to get tougher and tougher to get will all of this Squid.

Best shot at a Yellowtail continues to be Red Bluff. Some signal of them at Hen Rock, K-20 and Seal Rocks at the East End.

Calico bass fishing is good with the inside of the Isthmus being a hot spot for legal Bass.

EVERYTHING is on Live Squid. Fin bait is a waste of time, unless you want rockfish and those are biting good at the West End Humps.

The east end and up the back to about the Vee’s there are some barely leage White Seabass and Calico Bass in the kelp

San Clemente Island

Good clean and warm water along the frontside of tthe Island. Yellowtail are roaming up and down from Gold Bluff to Purse Siene Rock.

Sea Bass are a good possibility on the Back side at Lost Point and at Eel point.

Pick up Squid at Catalina before coming across. There is a dab in the cove but it’s very hard to make with all the Sea Lions

Dana Point

Fair local fishing with just a few legal Calico Bass being caught but there is much more short bass strating to bite again.

Rockfishing continues right along out at box canyon. Some very nice Reds in the 4-5lb class are being caught.

Excellent weather this morning. Flat calm seas with little to no wind.

La Jolla / Point Loma

yellowtail popped this morning but it was all over by 8:30. This has become a regular pattern for quite some time now.

Look at the Lower end of the MPA to out across the Squid spot just to the north of Mission Bay.

32.47.58 x 117.16.58· Pacific Beach Artificial Reef – Crystal Pier

This 30lb Yellow was taken on the New Seaforth this morning.

LJ Yellow 9-10

In the afternoon the New Seaforth went a few miles offshore and found a kelp with Dorado and Yellowtail. The folks caught 4 Dorado and 1 yellowtail. Approximate area was around 32.47 x 117.22

Dorado 9 10

 

Coronado Islands

Not many people at the Islands today. Latest info has Yellows on the Rockpile and in the Middle Grounds.

Try Slow Trolling a Sardine. 40lb gear is good for this. Be sure to pull hard and fast when you hook one or it will be a Sea Lion snack.

OFFSHORE

Pretty quiet on the “local” offshore waters this morning. Looks like most of the info will be coming in later in the afternoon so check back again in the evening.

 

US Waters

No reports yet of anything on the 267 / 209 / or the 181/182 ridge as of 1pm

If we get something in It will be posted ASAP

 

Off Orange County

Report from the Grim Reefer:

Left Dana Point at 5am headed to the 276, and 209. found kelps holding bait but nothing else. started to head towards the 181 but the water temp dropped from a steady 72/73 to 68. Turned back and zigzagged across our tracks. Lots of little kelps all over the 279, fewer towards the 181. The water looked great, everything is in place. Just need the fish to appear.

 

Cortez and Tanner Banks

Weather permiting this is the best shot at Bluefin from Orange and LA County. Last count we have is the Thunderbird catching 51 bluefin and 11 of the nicer grade yellowtail on their 1.5 day fishing this last Sunday (Sept 8).

The Toronado got 11 bluefin Yesterday and they have 15 yellows in the 15 to 20lb class.

Both banks have Bluefin on them. The catch numbers are down a little bit but still very respectable. Most are 15lb fish but some up to about 40lb are also being caught.

Big Yellowtail are also biting on both banks. Most of these are coming on the dropper loop rig. One thing new is some guys are finding 20lb class white Seabass too.

Large Bonito from 5 to 10lbs are everywhere on the Cortez and big Whitefish, Sheephead and Salmon Grouper round out the excellent overall fishing

32.26 x 119.08 Cortez

32.42 x 119.08 Tanner

 

MEXICO

Coronado Canyon

Got a report this morning of a kelp holding a bunch of 4 to 5lb Yellowtail. No Dorado or Tuna seen near this spot however.

31.25 x 117.25 Rat Yellow kelp

 

302

Still has Yellowtail and Dorado on kelps and yesterday saw some signal of Tuna in the afternoon. So far this morning not much info is coming in although we got a report of 1 kelp at 32.25 x 117.34.

This was loaded with toy yellows.

Add in this one I got as the report was going up. A kelp at 32.36 x 117.33. This kelp has a few Dorado and a bunch of little Yellowtail. This could be the same kelp that was at 35 x 30 yesterday.

 

425 / 371 and to the Upper Hidden Bank

First “local” Yellowfin was caught yesterday near the upper Hidden Bank on the Malihini along with a bunch of Yellowtail.

These Yellows are 4-5lbs with some kelps holding a few up to about 13lbs.

In the early afternoon Dorado came back up on the kelps and a few of them were caught.

32.14 x 117.26 yellowtail

32.08 x 117.23 Dorado and Yellowtail kelp

 

 

238 and 295

More and more Yellowfin are filtering up into this zone. Some good numbers of Bluefin being seen as well.

It’s still mostly Yellowtail and Dorado on the kelps but Yellowfin are now very possible as well. Some of the Yellowfin has now pushed up as close as 60 miles.

Try looking around 31.27 x 117.08 and 31.35 x 117.12. Make a 5 mile block out of these

Also try looking out to the west a bit at 31.28 x 117.28

31.33.25 x 117.12.25 238

31.37 x 117.11 Jig stop Yellowfin

31.40 x 117.05 Kelp

Report from Ross on the Finattic:

Fished down around 238 on Mon the 9th.Weather was up and windy all day. Water temps were 71.6  to 72. Had 1 blind strike on the yellow fin 26#, and 1 on bait 31#. baited 1 on a paddy way off on a long soak that went 38#. Had 5 nice sized skippies as well. Found a few good paddies and loaded the boat with medium 10 to 15# yellowtails. 25 to 30 released.. Had 1 small dodo and 1 25# bull. The bull came off a paddy and hit a mac colored surface popper. Good stuff! The troll tuna Hit a small 4inch red and white jet head. Long ride home straight into it!

 

1140 finger to the Lower 500

This entire zone has schools of Yellowfin in it and some of these schools are rather large.

The Yellowfin are coming on Kelp paddies, Jig stops, sonar marks, and under tern birds.

Sometimes they are mixed with Bluefin and some schools are straight bluefin or Yellowfin.

This stuff is coming up from the south quick and more is on the way.

The center of the most interest given by the fleet is wandering a bit to the west but you can find them anywhere from the 117.00 line to out past 117.28

Try looking around 31.15 x 117.25. This is a 5 mile block of Yellowfin, Bluefin, Yellowtail, Dorado and Skipjack.

Afternoon Update: Wide open Bluefin and Yellowfin Tuna fishing today! The fish are spread out over a wide area and all the boats did very good. Lot’s of Skipjack, Yellowtail and Dorado too!!
Look around a huge 20+ mile block around 31.11 x 117.22

 

100 down to 160 miles

LOT’s of Yellowfin and Bluefin biting this morning and they are marching up the line!

Scattered schools of Yellowfin are spread out the enitre distance from the Lower 500 down to about 145-165 miles. At this point the volume builds up pretty good.

The focus of attention is now all inside of the 117.00 line. Most of the action is between 116.25 and 116.45.

These yellowfin are mainly 30 to 40lb models at 150+ miles but the closer fish are mainly 15lb models.

kelp paddies, if you find one are pure gold. Loaded with Yellowtail, Dorado and Yellowfin.

There are still some big Bluefin around on the outer western edge on this area. They are not all big fish however. Schools of 15lb Bluefin are here as well.

 

 

All reports, good, bad, or otherwise are very helpful.·

Welcome to the NEW Fishdope website!!

Be sure to check out all the new features like all the different charts and the Bite zone chart.

Should be interesting to see how this works out in regards to where the fish are biting.

 

We are still working out the bugs that happen when ever you open up a new website.

Thank you all for your patience during this process.

Got this report from Dickerson:

Went out of Santa Barbara.  Ran up the coast about 20 miles got hooked up on White Seabass but then a damn Kayaker not paying attention came over to watch me bring it in……….. left his squid jig in the water and yep BYBY WSB……….. 


Got picked up 2 more times but missed them and after a about another hour of No joke,  15 Kayaks now surrounding us and only like 30 feet off. I was like time to move. So we went down and did some bounce balling and landed this nice halibut.

Anacapa Island

Some Yellowtail for a few guys but most are having to settle for the great Rockfish bite.

Most of the Yellowtail is in the lee along the frontside of the Island and is only happening in the early morning. 9am and its all over.

Catalina Island

The only real new dope is about some small but legal White Seabass at the east end and up toward the Vee’s.

Most of it appears to be around church rock. This stuff is running from just legal up to about 10-12lbs

Yellowtail are on the fronside from the East end all the way up to Starlight on the west end.

The better spots appear to be K-20, Hen Rock, Red Bluff and Eagle Reef

Squid is everywhere……..Literally. You can get a float almost any place you go from the east end to Eagle Reef. The biggest mass appears to be from Eagle Reef down to Lions head.

Darrel is still MIA. You have to make your own, which is EASY right now or by it in Long Beach or San Pedro, if they still have any for sale

Contact Darrell on the “Mary Claire” at 949-677-0607 or CH 11. If you mention “Fishdope” you’ll get $10 dollars off on each scoop of Squid!

Got This from Gene on the Reel Addicted:

Left LA harbor at 0700 with plan to fish current break just south of horse shoe! About a mile short of temp break on cool water side 66.5 tons of  Anchovy’s and life  about a mile long! Green dirty water. Followed temp break west until it turns south toward Avalon bank. Found Are first paddy about 5 mile north of Avalon bank with no one home water temp 73.3! Found lots of kelp on and around Avalon bank.  Nothing but sun fish around then! Then moved to cat east end ridge in 1500′ water temp 71.1 drift and chummed for shark on and around ball of Big Macs for 1 1/2 hour nothing! Moved in to island and just north of quarry stopped on meter marks for two hook ups on yellows both lost due to rookies on board! Both on live 8″ macs. Fished rest of day for 10ish short calicos!

 

San Clemente Island

Frontside of Clemente has good numbers of Yellowtail that want the LIVE squid.

From Gold Bluff all the way down to the head you can find Yellowtail.

On the Backside you can find a few Seabass at Lost Point and Eel point. This is hit and miss though. Look for the conditions before you setup. If the water isn’t right, your not going to catch any of them.

LA Harbor

Really slow Sand Bass fishing for your truly on Saturday night on a twilight trip on the Native Sun.

The wind blew Saturday afternoon and the water temp dropped from 67-68 to 61 in a couple of hours.

The Bass went into thermal shock.

We metered good numbers of them on Izors reef but they were to busy shivering to find our fresh dead Squid. We ended up with just 5 Sand Bass for 40+ passengers. We also caught about 10 sculpin.

Sad to admit this but I got skunked. Not a single bite all night.

We had Squid on us all evening but Sea Lions were brutal and never allowed them to build up.

The Squid boat fleet is out on the middle ground which is very close to the 150. Look for the lights. You can’t miss them.

There is some very nice Reds biting on the 150 right now. They are probably up from the deep water to feast on the mass of Squid on the spot.

Very little boat traffic right now. Some Yellowtail seen at the Rockpile and again in the Middle grounds.

Watch for the bird schools. Yellowtail are on them. Try slow trolling Sardines while scanning around for the birds.

OFFSHORE

US Waters

Morro Bay

The Black Pearl did an exploratory Albacore 1.5 day and caught 50+ Albacore. When we get the details we post them up here.

 

Marlin

Quiet this morning on the Marlin scene after a big tournament weekend.

A number of areas had Marlin Yesterday so this afternoon could see a repeat. The 277 and over to the Avalon Bank. The 277 also had a Swordfish caught.

The area just outside the 209 saw some afternoon action.

Then around the 289 and over towards the east end of San Clemente Island saw more.

 

Cortez and Tanner banks

Weather permiting this is the best shot at Bluefin from Orange and LA County. Yesterday nobody came out as the wind was brutal and blew everybody off the bank.

Both banks have Bluefin on them. The catch numbers are down a little bit but still very respectable. Most are 15lb fish but some up to about 40lb are also being caught.

Big Yellowtail are also biting on both banks. Most of these are coming on the dropper loop rig. One thing new is some guys are finding 20lb class white Seabass too.

Large Bonito from 5 to 10lbs are everywhere on the Cortez and big Whitefish, Sheephead and Salmon Grouper round out the excellent overall fishing

9 mile Bank to the 302

Not many reports this morning from this area but we got one of a kelp at 32.35 x 117.30. This is just over the border about half way between the upper 9 and the 302.

This kelp was holding straight Dorado. Mostly 2 to 4lbers.

Early in the afternoon several guys are reporting in saying they are seeing jumping open water Dorado and spots of Bluefin under birds just a mile or so SW of the 302 highspot.  This places them somewhere around 32.25 x 117.35

 

425 / 371 and to the Upper Hidden Bank

Once again this area is a hot spot for kelp paddy Yellowtail. Some kelps are loaded with Dorado too.

The Yellows are ranging from about 6lbs and up to about 13-14lbs

The Mission Belle called in at 12 noon with limits of Yellowtail and a few Dorado with several more hours left to fish.

Now we have some local Yellowfin as the  Malihini called in with 30 yellowtail, and one yellowfin tuna on their 3/4 trip. The are working this zone!!

32.13 x 117.26 Hot kelp

32.11 x 117.29 kelp

32.12 x 117.33 kelp

32.04 x 117.28 kelp

32.08 x 117.30 kelp

32.07 x 117.28 kelp

 

Report from the Heritage:

Found a kelp at 32.14.9 x 117.22.0 for limits 5-8lb yellowtail. This kelp was loaded in 69 degree water. Conditions were super bumpy with wind appx 7-12knots by 7:30am. Glad we knocked it out early and on our on way home by 9:30 as forecast was showing up to 15 knots by noon. Thanks again Fishdope for keeping us on the bite!

425 9-9

 

475 to the Banda Bank

Ensenada 6 pack boats are finding good fishing for kelp paddy Yellowtail and a few Dorado and Bluefin in an area between these 2 spots.

Most of the action is coming on kelps right now. Overall the tuna numbers are on the small side BUT keep an eye out for the Yellowfin. They are not to far to the south and they are on the move.

Take a look in a warm 71 degree strip around 31.38 x 117.12

 

238 and 295

Yellowfin watch!!

Mostly Yellowtail and Dorado on kelps with a few yellowfin and Bluefin around. Watch out though as big numbers of Yellowfin are pushing up hard. Good chance they will be on this area in the next few days.

Try looking around 31.28 x 117.06 and also out to the west a bit at 31.28 x 117.21

 

1140 Finger and the Lower 500

Pretty good numbers of yellowfin Tuna have moved in the area.

The Yellowfin are joined with Bluefin, Yellowtail and Dorado.

It’s really good fishing right now.

The Yellowfin are coming on Kelp paddies, Jig stops, sonar marks, and under tern birds.

Sometime they are mixed with Bluefin and some schools are straight bluefin or Yellowfin.

This stuff is coming up from the south quick and more is on the way.

The center of the most interest given by the fleet is wandering a bit to the west but you can find them anywhere from the 117.00 line to out past 117.28

31.15 x 117.25 5 mile block of Yellowfin, Bluefin, Yellowtail, Dorado and Skipjack.

31.17 x 117.27 Hot kelp

31.14 x 117.23 loaded kelp

31.16 x 117.24 wide open jig stop on Yellowfin

31.14 x 117.05 everything on this kelp

31.19 x 117.04 Yellowfin and Skipjack jig stop

 

438/500

Weather was nasty yesterday but at least 1 boat was out looking. They found a couple of sonar marks of Bluefin between the 475 and the 483/500 but could not get them to go. Not enough bait to chum might have been part of the problem as these big Bluefin have only been responding to massive brail chumming to get them started

31.31 x 118.07 sonar mark

31.33 x 118.09 sonar mark

 

 

All reports, good, bad, or otherwise are very helpful.·

Report Updated: September 20, 2013 at 10:49 pm

Anacapa Island
A few yellowtail around first thing in the mornings. Look for current along the frontside of the island and you’ll find the fish.
Anchovies in the bait receivers.
Good codding throughout the day at The Gap as always.

Catalina Island

The water temperature has dropped 6F from mid day yesterday. Wind and chop reported today. Very slow fishing for the twilight trip aboard the Native Son last night. Fishdope Danny was aboard and reported the boat only caught 5 nice size sand bass caught around Izor’s Reef. Danny was not one of the lucky 5 anglers to catch a fish last night.

La Jolla
Jeremie reported in after spending the night in La Jolla with his son Gavin:
Spent the night in the cove with Gavin. Squid was mostly 2-3 inch stuff. Made enough bigger pieces to setup on the half.
Current started out right and then starting swinging around.
Made some mack at grey and went outside.
Found a paddy 15 miles straight west of LJ that was loaded with lockjaw dorado. Hooked one on the surface plug and handed it to Gavin. His first time with the jig stick. He got a good fight but it popped off. Couldn’t get them to go after that only had spanish macks left and they wouldn’t touch them.
Waved in another boat that hooked a rat yellow. Only kelp we found. Huge spot of fish, dorado jumping everywhere. Wish I brought the gun.

Coronado Islands / Rockpile
Word from the Coronado’s and Rockpile is wolf packs of yellowtail in the middle water column all over the place.
Talked to one sport boat that was coming home yesterday that ran across a big school of yellowtail at the Rockpile under birds as he was passing through the area.
Skippers reporting catching yellowtail today off North Island by slow trolling sardines over meter marks in 70′ of water.
There has been very little traffic at the islands this week.

The 289 is another hot spot for marlin with lots of life then turning on around mid day and afternoon. A couple fish hooked here yesterday 32.56 x 118.06. Mean Joe Green has been a good color to drag.

A few tailers off the Mackerel Bank yesterday afternoon. Should pop again today while everyone is watching football.

Few fish off Pyramid Head 1.5 to 3 miles off. Tailing in the afternoon.

Bum dope on the 60 mile bank, misinterpreted. Nothing there.

Great day on the water thanks Rick. – Jack

I was the diver Rickdiculas called in on the huge paddy around the 182. The diving was epic. I got 2 in the first shot, landed both. jumped back in got another. Back in for number 4. Shot a 5th but it tore off. There was also a school of 10-15 6lb yellowtail cruzin around. Awesome sight to see so many dorado swimming up to you when one is on the spear.

Left MB at 7 AM with a light half scoop. Swells were up and stacked coming from the west. Wind was already blowing 7-8 knots. Got down about 5 miles from the Upper Hidden and ran into a lot of boats working this area. Passed by a boat that was bendo and radio’d for a status and he called me in on a paddy. All you want 5-7 lb yellows.
After an hour the wind and swells were getting bad and made the call to head home. Put 2 YT in the icebox and released 5. Farmed one on 30 lb that made a good run, pretty sure it was a larger yellow.
LOT of life 4-6 miles SW of the Nados. Ton of bait jumping around the boat, flying fish every 10 minutes, ran into a large pod of talking dolphins and dropped some marlin lures and a cedar plug back and ran with them for a while but came up with nothing.
Water looked good, lots of life, just really hard to see anything finning or spot paddies with the wind and swells. – Miss Madi

The 3/4 day boat Mission Belle reported in with 50+ yellowtail and 1 dorado around mid day while fishing in the area. He ended up with limits of yellowtail and 1 dorado.
Other 3/4 day boats also doing well on the small yellowtail and a few dorado.

Most of the yellowtail are 6lb size but some 15-20lb are around. The dorado are from 12-20lbs.

At 79 Miles from San Diego the sport boat fleet is thick in to the yellowfin today.
Kelps, jig strikes and sonar marks are getting better every day.
One of the boats called in to the landing with 22 yellowtail, 3 Bluefin tuna, 125 yellowfin tuna, 29 dorado and 12 skipjack from the area this morning.
Take a look along the 117.00 line inside the 1140 finger, above the Lower 500. The fleet is spread out in the area in a 10 mile block surrounding 31.15 x 117.00.
The weather down in the area was sloppy but fishable in the big boats.
