Popular gamefish targeted in OC waters
Yellowtail – Maybe the most prized gamefish in southern California waters this hard fighting member of the jack family will not disappoint. Caught year round at the islands of Los Angeles, and seasonally along the coastal waters. 10-20 pound specimens are common and up to 40 pounds possible.
White Sea Bass – Known for reaching giant sizes of 70 pounds or more 30-40 pounds is more the norm. Both found at Catalina Island and along the coast year round this fish can bite with reckless abandon and then at times be very finicky. Excellent eating gamefish.
Calico Bass – Also known as rock bass these smaller gamefish can make up for their size in their fighting ability. During the spring and summer months these fish spawn creating clouds of bass that will inhale most baits. Still they head for the rocks and the larger specimens are very difficult to keep from breaking you off in the rocks. They grow slowly and larger ones are best returned to ensure healthy breeding stock.
Barracuda – Aggressive gamefish that attacks lures and baits and can bite through line before you feel the bite. Caught year round but primarily in the spring and summer months. Large schools make for not stop action. Hard fighting lots of fun for both adults and kids.
Tuna – Several species of tuna can be caught with albacore tuna found further offshore on mostly overnight trips while yellowfin tuna and bluefin tuna can be caught on full day and even ½ day fishing trips during the summer and fall months. Often fish are located on the troll and then chummed with live bait. Bites can be fast and furious and these hard fighting fish can wear you out in short order. Kelp paddies also attract tuna and when one is located can be a treasure chest for tuna and other gamefish.
Rockfish – Covers many species of gamefish usually found in slightly deeper water. Red snapper, ling cod, sheepshead, sculpin, whitefish or just a few all great eating and caught in larger numbers. Although not considered larger gamefish several of the varieties can reach 15 pounds of more. Caught year round both at islands and along the coastline. Along with being excellent eating their coloration is quite amazing.
