July 8th to 14th, 2010
Overall Catch Success Rate 96%
OTHER SPECIES: Dorado catches were actually quite good with forty two percent of charters catching between one and five fish – best dorado boat was “Rebecca” the day they fished Destiladeres, giving them a total of five, plus two wahoo for the Gelhaus family from Concord, California. Dorado were found over a wide area being picked up at Chileno and 11.50 spot as well. Tuna catches were not that far behind those of dorado, with thirty five percent of boats catching between one and thirty three football size fish (from 15 to 30 lbs). “Andrea” was the top tuna boat with 33 fish caught on cedar plugs and green colored lure, four miles from the 180 spot, caught by Nick and Mary Beth Hazeldine from England…..many were released in keeping with the quotas. Pretty good wahoo catches this week with some boats getting a couple in a day with weights no more than 48 lbs. They were found off of San Jose and also at the 11.50 spot. Closer to shore there were some jack crevalle and a few rooster fish.
