We highlighted one week in that stretch on June 27th, after their boat returned with 251 yellowtail on a single 3/4 day trip.
But all good things must come to an end, and without exception, it appears that amazing bite has dried up at the Coronado Islands.
Captain Ryan Bostian posted on his Instagram account Sunday evening that the yellowtail had “moved on” due to a water temperature drop and change in water color.
So instead of running into Mexico’s water where a passport is required for all passengers, the “San Diego” will shift focus to the tuna available in local US waters. That bite has been less consistent than the yellowtail at the Islands, but 3/4 day boats, and even 1/2 day boats have been striking tuna gold with both bluefin and yellowfin tuna lately.
After the best stretch of yellowtail fishing I have ever seen at the Coronado Islands. It appears Mother Nature has prevailed again. The water has dropped in temp and changed in color and as a result the yellowtail have moved on. Starting tomorrow July 13 we will start fishing offshore for tuna,yellowtail and dorado. No passport needed for these trips. Come join us !
