    My wife and I are going to give the snowbird thing a shot. We will be staying in Lake Havasu City for the month of January. I’m not dragging the boat down so I’ll be a bank fisherman unless I can hook up with someone that needs a ho. What type gear should I bring? What fisheries are going on in January? Also thinking about running over to the coast to visit friends in the old hood (North San Diego County) and getting out on a party boat. What’s going to be going on mid January? Thanks for any info on either place.

    Havasu might have some striper biting. Just a guess, I've never fished it.

    San Diego will definitely have rockfish, and halibut. There's word the bluefin are south and moving up. Might have a chance at them guys.

    Haven't fished Havasu in January, but it has good fishing for stripers and largemouth, and has turned into an incredible fishery for really nice-sized smallmouth (up to 5 lbs that I've personally caught) over the last 5-10 years. I would imagine the quality of fishing in January is going to weather dependent.

    Never fished it, but it has been in the news regarding record redeared sunfish. They are eating the zebra mussels and growing to ridiculous size, like 5-6 pounds!

    5 lb'er fights like a 10 lb black bass........for 2 minutes.

    I won't eat them anymore after I saw a bunch of em circling the ducks eating bread tossed into the water at The Waters resturant on the north lake at Woodbridge. As soon as the carps would grab a hunk of bread the ducks zoomed in to get the crumbs. Then the ducks would take a huge dump and the bluegills would swarm the poop cloud and scarf it all up.

    I have enjoyed catching tons of them during my lifetime.(probably a slight exageration)
