Offshore Fish Report from Captain Alan Clowers

  • Content Ad
  • The offshore fishing has been really good with big dorado, bluefin tuna, yellowtail and yellowfin tuna in the mix. Most days we are having to cover a lot of water to find the right kelp paddy though. Some are holding fish, but a lot are not.

    The ones that are holding fish seem to be in the real warm, clean purple-blue water. By warm, I mean warm…I’ve found water up to 77 degrees the last few days! The paddy fishing is mostly dorado and yellowtail, but yellowfin and bluefin are also mixed in.

    There is also a bite close to shore for bluefin, but it’s all about being in the right spot at the right time. We rolled up on some porpoise yesterday that had jumping bluefin with them. We put 4 baits in and had 4 hookups on 50 pound class fish.

    The weather has been really nice with calm seas and a SST (sea surface temperature) from 69 to 77 degrees depending on the day and area.

    We are getting pretty booked up, so now is the time to get a charter on the books and take advantage of this once-in-a-lifetime local offshore fishing. I hope to see you on the water, tight lines!

    I was on the wrong charter yesterday, apparently.
