Went fishing in San Diego Bay from the shoreline, three times this week all during the transitional tides, caught a total of 14 halibut; 4 legals, maybe 50+ spotties/sand bass AND one pufferfish. Practiced all catch and release, so they are still out there boys! Weather getting warmer, water getting warmer, really think the metabolism of these predator fish are turned up. I see a lot of bait fish in the waters, as well as, pelicans diving down. Overall, the fishing right now is very exciting to experience.

Catching local legends out of Long Beach breaking double digits creating personal best. Hooked into a monster that I believed was a white seabass on my homemade lures. Ended up with a golden dream
