    Bottom fished off La Jolla and up the coast yesterday for very slow fishing. Mostly junk fish.

    Unfortunate to hear. I don't bottom fish San Diego so I'm actually pretty curious - is the bottom fishing pretty bad over there?

    I've had good luck at LJ this season. Spots are small and you have to line up just right but the fish are there. Lings have been on the chew as well.

    Also had some good luck. Time and tide play key roles in the bite

    I fished La Jolla today and all the way to Point Loma. No lings but between the four of us we got our limits of Bocaccio, one Vermillion, and one Flag Rockfish. There was absolutely no current this morning but beautiful weather and glass calm. I'm looking extremely forward to the March 1st opener. Tight lines!

    Can you explain what time and tide works well?

    I've been fishing point Loma every weekend for 2 months and can't seem to get them to chew.

    Appreciate it.

    I always like to fish about an hour after high tide or maybe even up to two hours. No current usually equals no biting activity. Keep in mind also that most the fish we are pulling up are loaded down with the red crab. Additionally, we are at the end of the season and the fish have been nothing but slaughtered for 10 months. In March you should see an increase in biting and catch activity due to the fact that the red crabs this year are a fluke and there has been no pressure for a while due to the closure. Good luck.

    Twilight/sunrise works for me for rock fish.

    AM fishing on a strong incoming tide has always been good to me.

    Evening sunet bite at LJ is awesome for bass.
