The ‘Catching’ Continues!

We have been fishing every day although had to cancel some trips due to weather.  When the weather gave us a break, we have had awesome fishing.  Here are the pics:


The Fishing Continues To Be Great

I have had the opportunity to take some great people out fishing.  The adventures were action packed.  Here are the photos from recent trips:


Water Temps Are Excellent and So Is The Fishing!

El Nino is Here and He brought the fish with him! Water temps are righteous now for some awesome fishing.

Quality Yellowfin and Bluefin Tunas, Yellow Tail and some Dorado started showing up for the party on all the major banks in the San Diego and Mexican waters, due to the El Nino conditions, and Coletta Sportfishing Charters has your All Access Pass to get you past the “velvet ropes.”

Trolling with certain feather size and color (especially the blue & white color) combinations is producing big fish around the dolphin and porpoise pods. Some trophy fish are coming off kelp patties as well on live bait.

The average Yellowfin/Bluefin weight has been in the 20 lb with a few close to 50lbs. Yellow tails are ranging from 6lb to 30lbs. Epic fishing!

If the offshore scene slows down we have no problem targeting Rock Fish and Calico Bass in the kelps.

Call or email now our dates are filling up! If you want to see way they put heavy drags on reels lets go fishing.


Spring is Here and so are the Yellowtails!

April is in full swing and so is the Yellowtail bite around La Jolla and the Coronado Islands! The bite has been steady for almost a month now, with the bulk of the Yellowtails being found all around the islands and La Jolla. Most of the fish are being found off bird schools on live bait or surface irons. If the fish are deep then the yo yo iron is the ticket.

We caught most of our Yellowtails on the surface iron with blue and white Tady to be the top color. We have also had great success slow trolling live mackerels and sardines when the fish where on the surface and spread out. When we metered the fish the Sumo Jr  Chrome and Blue was the ticket for amazing yo yo fishing.

The average Yelolwtail was just under 20lbs but we caught a few that went over 40 lbs! They were tackle busters! When the Yellowtail bite turns off, we’ve had no problem targeting Rockfish and Lingcod at a few nearby spots.

Our dates are filling up quick! Please call or email if you would like to get out and tangle with these Yellowtails!
