San Diego Bay Fish Report – 6/12/15


San Diego Bay has been fishing really good lately, particularly for bonefish. We have been getting up to 25 bonefish in just a few hours of fishing in recent trips.

  • Along with the bonefish we have been getting some big bay sharks (leopard sharks and shovelnose guitarfish) and a lot of bass. Throw in a few halibut, and overall the fishing has been outstanding.

    We have been targeting the bass deep in the channel, fishing Berkley Gulp baits in the “natural” color on 1/2 oz leadheads, 10 pound PowerPro main line with a 15 pound leader. It’s been pretty much wide open when the tide is moving on that bite.

    Halibut are coming on 5″ swimbaits in brown and green colors, fishing the flats in 12-15′ of water.

    Bonefish are also on the flats, and taking the usual ghost shrimp offering fished on drop shots and light carolina rigs (1/4 oz sliding sinker). Bonefish are going as good as it gets right now.

    The bay sharks are coming on dead sardines and squid.Β The surface temperature in the back of the bay is 74 degrees.

    Take advantage of summer vacation for the kids, and get them out here on the bay. The fishing is about as bite friendly as it could be, and it’s a great time to experience what the bay has to offer.
