With only two weeks to Christmas Tuna and Wahoo are what’s happening.
The Wahoo are logs this year avg 50-60 lbs. Fast trolling dark colored lures like Marauders or Rapalas or slow trolling caballito with a wire trap hook setup is doling the trick. My advice if Wahoo are your targeted species you need to put in the time. Fishing half the day on the same track is not unusual. The fish are there but they’re not always on the chew, so be patient.
The Tuna are the real gift. As I said last week 1-2 fish per day seems to be what the tuna gods are willing to give up, but these fish are huge. We had a group this week out at La Reina hook up and land a 220 pounder on the chunk. Fortunately for this angler the fish got tail wrapped which cut a couple of hours off his battle. Calamar or dead sardines are the bait of choice on 50-80 lb floracarbon with a 4º circle hook.
We did not have a good tuna season this year so this is a real treat.
As the water continues to cool the Pargo and Cabrilla action is picking up off the rocky points and seamounts.
Inshore fishing has been steady with Sierra, assorted jacks and the Late season Dorado, which May be here all year the way things are looking.
