Copa Baja California Dates Set

Stephen Jansen 7th Sierra Tournament

Baja Tournaments Begin

This past weekend, Lori Heath and I went on a 1.5-day trip on “Old Glory” with Captain Kley Williams, who had received information that there were signs of bluefin and yellowtail southwest of San Diego. So we headed to that zone looking for tuna and yellowtail paddies.
We had good weather and stopped several times in the dark and early morning on deep tuna marks. One angler got hit but did not connect. As the sun came up, we spotted jumping tuna and were excited to know we were in an area holding fish. Late morning we slid up to a kelp paddy, and it was “game on” for 7 to 12-pound yellowtail on flylined sardines, yoyo jigs, colt snipers, and surface irons!
