Fish Targeted - Spring fishing typically fishes on anchor for tasty "Reds" Rockfish, Halibut, Yellowtail and White Seabass as early as March. Summer targets include Big Gamefish like Yellowtail, Dorado, Yellowfin Tuna, Bluefin Tuna and last year's El Nino even Wahoo or Ono were being caught off San Diego. These species are caught while trolling offshore for schools of tuna or under Kelp Paddies. Local half-day trips are fishing on anchor for Yellowtail, Calico Bass, Sand Bass, Rockfish, Lingcod, Halibut and ocassionally Bluefin Tuna at the Coronado Islands where deep Yo-Yo heavy jigs or bait using heavy 6-8 ounce "Torpedo's" works great. Yellowtail are targeted year-round with summer months best as with other gamefish mentioned. Now with side-scanning sonar for even greater chance at spotting roaming schools of gamefish off San Diego. Read more Yellowtail Tips.
