For the last 3+ days I have seen upwards of 8 boats fishing a small area about a mile off south Del Mar/North Torrey Pines State Beach. This includes 2-3 party boats that have stayed there all day. What is happening there?

Good point they are likely fishing...just looking to go to the next level down on the information flow chart? I did check the counts at Seaforth but that did not give any leads...Problem is I do not know which boats they are.

Actually we probably do. Its not that difficult. You start with the possible landings. Helgrens and seaforth. Eliminate any boats fishing offshore. I.E. any boat with tuna and dorado. What you have left must be what they are catching. Bass and yellowtail.

That sounds like Scripps canyon spot located right above of marine reserve.
I remember me and my friends fished the spot a lot on a 1/2 boat out of Seaforth in late 90's. We used to catch lots of calico bass and rockfish there along with occasional YT on yoyo from fall through winter.
BTW, your posting reminds me of my college days I spent in SD. :beerbang::devil:

your all wrong. its a wide open sculpin bite, and since their out of season currently that's why they're not in anyone's counts. just catch and release.
