Fish Report for 5-28-2024

Islands check, going offshore

James McDaniels

We spent the last two trips scouring the Coronado Islands and after leaving no stone unturned we came up unsuccessful on surface fish. We enjoyed excellent bottom fishing but the writing on the wall says we need to be offshore to get a big hit. We have switched all upcoming trips to offshore tuna trips starting immediately. We already have a triple digit tuna under our belt this year and we are hungry for more. Join us on a trip soon! 


Tackle recommendations for our upcoming offshore trips:


1. Yellowtail/bonito/small bluefin: A flyline setup with good fresh 30lb monofilament matched with equal test flurocarbon and 1/0 to 2/0 Gamakatsu nautilus or Owner mutu circle hooks. 

2. Medium size bluefin: A 40-50lb outfit with matching flurocarbon for sinker rig fishing using 4-6 ounce torpedo sinkers and heavy duty rubber bands. This rig is also great for 80-120 gram Daiwa Zakana jigs and Shimano colt snipers. 

3. Big Bluefin: 60-100lb outfit with a two speed reel to fish the sinker rig and 180-300 gram knife jigs. 


Departing seven days a week at 5:30am, check-in begins at 4:45am. Mexican fishing license included. Return times may be later than posted. Bunks are available and free of charge, please provide your own bedding if needed. No fuel surcharge.
