NOAA announced it this morning. It supposed to be a weak El Niño. But here’s to hoping it brings wahoo, dorado, and tuna to the 150:p:

I knew it was only a matter of time before it was officially called. when it rains every other week like this and the Pineapple express starts, there is no doubt in my mind that we have an el nino brewing and i feel it will be a great summer of local surface fishing!!!!!!!!!!!

A bit odd they didn't call it sooner, since the actual charts have been matching the models they showed over summer when they forecasted a weak ENSO event for a while now.

"Scientists say that some of the above-normal precipitation this winter in parts of the West is related to subseasonal variability attributed to another climate phenomena, the Madden Julian Oscillation (MJO), rather than El Nino influences. The MJO can trigger enhanced rainfall along the West Coast."

    its been a long time for me, but does this el nino typically bring warmer water to socal or cold water. What does this mean for BFT? is that a no show for them.... is it more a YFT anYT show on the banks???

    Madden Julian Oscillation is the Man Bear Pig of Pacific tropical weather!
    Seriously, I've been looking at Columbia University forecasr

    Madden Julian Oscillation! That is the Man Bear Pig of Pacific Tropical weather.
    What I like is the Columbia University ENSO site. They list by months the probabilities of La Nina, neutral, or El Nino. Strong for all 2019. Numbers tapper off later in year.
