What to Reel in While You’re Here
The Robalo R 242 is a top choice for anglers with good reason, and so are the species that are available to be reeled in while you’re enjoying this sunny destination. The waters around San Diego are home to Rockfish and White Seabass in abundance but many anglers head this way in direct pursuit of the Yellowtail Amberjack. This species is known for its spirited approach to life, making it a challenging, yet satisfying choice. Those who find themselves in San Diego with a sure purpose of pursuing Yellowtail Amberjack will find they can reel in two types including the Firecrackers and Mossback. The Firecrackers are the smaller variety of the two and weigh anywhere from 12 to 25 pounds. Mossback Yellowtails are significantly larger and can reach up to 40 pounds.
Where to Fish
Anglers in San Diego enjoy many options when it comes to where and how to fish. In-shore, deep-sea, and sport-fishing are all possible when you’re spending time on the water in Southern California. Those that are looking to go offshore, the Coronado islands are about a 30-minute ride from Point Loma. Past the islands, are the offshore tuna grounds such as the 302, 425, and Hidden Bank. Bluefin tuna, yellowfin tuna, dorado, bonito, and yellowtail are all readily available between April and October.
