Sunday at Cisco’s ended up being as mellow as your average weekday. Only half the boats went out because of the ominous forecast that never truly developed. Yesterday we cancelled a few sold out boats because the “Santa Ana Winds” was supposed to blow hard along the coast and at the islands. The wind did come up, but much later than predicted and half as hard as they thought. So basically, our anglers today enjoyed plenty of elbow room and little pressure from other boats on the fishing grounds. As for fishing, it ended up being a nice day. The Yellowtail did not want to bite but there was plenty of other species that did. We caught good numbers of Bonito, Red Snapper, Whitefish and Lingcod. A few lucky anglers hooked into Yellowtail and the luckiest or most skilled of them landed them. The Bonito bite was excellent today though. Not giants but big enough to give our anglers a bit of a run. One boat even caught a couple Halibut of which we hadn’t seen any of those in a while. By the days end, everyone departing the boats said they had a great time and judging by the fillet bags in their hands they caught plenty of fish.

Weather conditions and elusive fish keeping us on our toes here at the Channel Islands. Big game is our primary focus but erratic barometric pressure has made it tough. The pattern over the last few days has been, “get um one day, and find um the next”. Water temperatures have also dropped since the beginning of the week. The wind we had Thursday and Friday took its toll, turning the water green and dropping the surface temperatures by 4 degrees. Thankfully, bait is plentiful and the water is still good enough to keep the fish around. It just needs some time to stabilize. Fortunately, we have great bottom fishing here and our anglers will always have “options”. For tomorrow, we again will see a condition change as winds from the north east are forecasted to hit Southern California. The famous “Santa Ana Winds” can sometimes flatten the ocean making it flat calm the farther offshore you go. This is great news for boats that fish the outer islands like San Miguel Island. It can however make fishing the local islands, Anacapa and Santa Cruz, dry and windy. Our captains and already adjusting their “plan of attack” to combat the forecasted conditions, and get our anglers on the fish Sunday. Stay tuned at this same time tomorrow for another report and hopefully a big fish count!
