Tuna move in-new Barracuda range

Local anglers planning to head south the San Diego area will find good news: signs of a good tuna season continued in the waters off Baja California this week.The Pacific Voyager returned to Seaforth Sportfishing in San Diego from a 2 day trip with 55 bluefin tuna and 2 yellowtail. The hard fighting tuna have been mostly in the 20-40 lb. class with a few fish nearing 100 pounds. Anglers must be aware that besides a 25 pound outfit, they will need heavier tackle.The island bite has really slowed down but most skipper believe that this is a temporary situation. “There are still a lot of seabass, yellows and really good calico bass fishing at our islands,” said Captain John Ackley of the Westerly out of Long Beach Sportfishing. “It’s just a matter of time until it goes off again.” Boats fishing Catalina, San Clemente and Catalina Islands have been catching a few white seabass with the smaller 6-pack boats getting the best of it.
