    Duh... with all the rain we’ve already had, it has never been in question here. Just wait until Spring... this one is shaping up like the one in 1998-1999 IIRC.

    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.

    El Niño allows the California Current to push farther north against the Humbolt Current, as I recall, and the water is warmer from the Equator north.

    Bluefin are already here, and will likely remain so as long as the forage is there. El Niño temperature effects aren’t really drastic until Summer and Fall, if I recall correctly, and since the bluefin regulate their own body temperature to a large extent, they are more tolerable for acceptable temperature ranges.

    Back in the day, bluefin used to be found in 58 - 65 degree water and were usually pushed onward once the temps got to 66 or better, again IIRC, but what we’ve seen the past two years since I’ve been back have shown the bluefin to be quite happy with temps in the mid to upper 70’s.

    If the El Niño effect is strong this year, do look for significant numbers of quality yellowfin, dorado and yellowtail offshore this summer and fall.

    From what I understand, Only the 50+ Lb yellowfins and 30 lb yellowtail will make way into SoCal to celebrate El Niño the smaller ones stay in Mexico.

    I used to see a YOY rolling count of fish totals by species for SD but I can't find it. We could use that with a weather history overlay to guestimate how this year will go.
