These last few El Nino years have produced phenomenal opportunities offshore in the Southern California bight. GIANT Bluefin Tuna have been ravaging masses of anchovies on the outer banks. Yellowfin tuna, Dorado and Yellowtail have been holding on kelps in the southern zones. Striped Marlin were here in astounding numbers, holding offshore and tight to the islands.
The primary target for fly fisherman are yellowfin tuna, dorado and yellowtail. Sometimes its long drifts off kelps and other times you are running hard chasing bird schools and foamers.
