Fishing Season Is Almost Here

I just wanted to talk a little about the up coming fishing season, for the most part it start in early March when the rock fish season opens. There is fishing going on right now, there are halibut and sand bass to catch, even a few white sea bass and yellows have been coming in from the San Diego area this winter, most of my private fishing charters have been lobster fishing trips. Next month is also the Fred Hall Fishing Shows, there are not to be missed, the first one will be in Long Long Beach and the second will be two weeks later in Del Mar, here you'll find great deals on all kinds of fishing tackle. I can't wait for the water to warm up and the fishing action to get started. I'll See you all next moth at the Fred Hall Shows too.

Lobster report for Feb 10th

I had a another lobster charter last night, fishing was only OK, we ended the night with six legals and lots of crabs. bait was salmon heads and we fished in 35 feet of water. This was a fun group to fish with, the guys fished really hard, I just wish I could of found more legal size lobster for them. As a rule Feb is the best month of the year to fish for lobsters so get out there and try it, or call me and book a private lobster charter with me.
