Hello soda, whats that doing to the wahoo fishing at the ridge a bit warm? years ago we hit a stretch of water at clipper ton that was 92 DEG.
Geez, how often is the water too warm?
That depends on what species you're targeting.
At 86 degrees, what's happening to the bait?
Very good question.
It rolls and you loose a lot of bait. That would be my thinking on it. I have seen the bait roll when it was at a lower temp.
I have also seen the bait look pretty sad when the water temp. was around 82.
Found this a few hours ago.
This ones the most current
Yikes I really like bait fishing for wahoo.
Recently the water temp was 75 degrees at Santa Barbara Island and I saw a party boat catch a marlin 8 miles from Marina Del Rey while rock fishing.
Wow, that's warm!
So did anyone answer?? How is the fishing on the ridge?? Heading out next Sat. on a 8 day and would like to know if it is going to be a bust down south....
IMO the answer is go fishing and you will find out….a week can see things change 180 degrees……if it's a bust that's fishing…..no promises.
Lets ask the magic ball...
Bait will probably die to shock of high temps I'll probably swim in the bait tank to cool off While holding my cold drink above my head while I just jig fish
Jeff I think your on the vagabond 8 day if so cya there
Panic, don't panic. Like fishy said, go out and fish. The intrepid just posted exactly that. Conditions changed from the last trip and they are finding good spots and not so good spots.
As for the bait, 82 degrees is the magic number I have found, and that's with good cured bait. With the current bait situation, I'm not so sure. I think the saying "Hope for the best, plan for the worst" applies here.
Maybe a Cedros bait run is in order, but don't know if there is bait. I drove through Salsipuedes on Thursday and counted 15 tuna pens, so the tuna operations are in full swing again.
I think Jer has the right attitude here, take a dip in the bait tank and have a beer. I know for a fact the Ninja Blender will be in full swing with margaritas!!
I have a 9 day in Dec. my first choice is fishing the jig upwards of 90% of the time, with some dropper loop fishing the rest of the time. Would like a Grouper or two that would be a first for me, a Grouper. going for sort of a grand slam, Tuna, Yellowtail, Wahoo, Grouper....
So I heard.
