San Diego Bay Fish Report from Captain Alan Clowers

San Diego Bay is San Diego’s best fishing spot for kids, families and even experienced anglers – whether you want to keep it short and sweet with a half day of fishing or put in a full day of fish catching fun. We have been catching everything on the Big Bay lately; spotted bay bass, halibut, sand bass, bonefish, rays and guitarfish – its truly been wide open.

Bass have been coming on Berkley Gulp Shrimp in all colors on a 1/2 oz lead head in 13-45′ of water. Bonefish have been steady on ghost shrimp. Halibut have prefered a drop shot rig with a Berkley Jerk Shad. And the rays and guitarfish have been coming on cut bait. The weather and tides have been good, so if you want to catch a lot of fish with the family, or just yourself, San Diego Bay is the pick. See you on the water.

August 4, 2013 (PM) – Rusty Friess and his son Burton were in town to meet the other son after a cross-country bike ride.  We took advantage of a good evening incoming tide and landed numerous nice sized Spotted Bay Bass.

August 4, 2013 (AM) – Jake Guzman and his son Jarrett came out for a fun morning of fishing on San Diego Bay.  Seven-year-old Jarred was quickly into the Spotted Bay Bass with the Curly Tailed Grub.  He then spotted a 1 ¾” VIE Shiner in my box and wanted to fish with it.  I put in on a ¼ ounce jig head and just about every cast brought a nice Bass to the boat.  Father and son had well over 30 Spotted Bay Bass for the morning of fishing.

We fished 4 people on Friday, July 5th in San Diego Bay and had a tremendous day. Our group had 74 spotties and a 31″ halibut (pictured) in a 5 hour trip. The spotties are coming on Berkley Gulp Shrimp in any color on a 1/2 oz lead head with 8 lb mono line. The bass and halibut all came from the channel in 40 feet of water. 

We have also been targeting bonefish on other recent trips, which we’re averaging 9-15 on each trip. The bonefish are coming on carolina rigged live ghost shrimp on a 1/4 oz sliding sinker. We’re finding those up on the mud flats in 8 feet of water.

San Diego “Back” Bay Report

I had the pleasure to take Doug and Penny from Utah out fishing for some light tackle Spotted Bay Bass fishing. I had heard from Kelvin with La Jolla fishing that the back bay was biting pretty good. Doug and Penny were staying at Loew’s resort on Coronado, so I picked them up at the Glorietta Bay dock and ran to the back bay to look around. As we slid up to the first area you could see all the bait rolling on the surface with a few being chased by bigger fish. The water temperature was averaging around 62.5 degrees and oil slick conditions at first. Later in the morning the breeze lightly blew from the W-SW. Luckily the fog was not nearly as bad as the previous few days.

Due to the wind and fog the day before, we opted to stay in the bay and try to find some Bass and hopefully stay out of the fog and wind. Don, Rachel and Jon are repeat customers from a few years ago. So the jokes started right off the bat along with some fish! Jon being the hot stick of the day, with Rachel and her dad Don tying for second.
