Halibut Hal reporting this weeks local fresh and salt water fishing reports for KHTS 1220AM:
Starting off with our local lakes:
1) Castaic Lake...Wide open largemouth bass action! The best times are before 10AM or after 4:30PM. Fair to good blegill bite. Hit and miss on the stripers.
2) Pyramid Lake...Striped bass fishing continues to improve...the fish have been boiling all over the lake! ; most are 1 - 3 pound stripers. Catfish bite is good too.
3) Lake Piru...Improved catfish action. Very good bass bite in the coves. Better bites on the crappie, as well as good bluegill fishing.
4) Lake Cachuma...Many limits of catfish being taken. Try fishing the coves or bays. There's a very good bluegill bite, as well as better crappie fishing.
The best bite for "exotics" right now is happening on the "Redondo Special". This is the half day boat out of Redondo. On Monday, 16 white seabass were caught on the morning trip. The afternoon trip caught another 5 seabass! Live squid is available and that's what they want.
Landings from Long Beach to Marina Del Rey: Good fishing for the usual assortment of rockfish, sand bass, calico bass, sculpin, barracuda, ocean whitefish and an improved sheephead bite. Twilight runs from San Pedro and Long Beach are scoring many limits of sand bass.
Oxnard/Ventura Landings: Very few "exotics" this week. Mostly rockfish are biting very well. The overnight boats are getting a few nice ling cod. At press time, "The Mirage" is catching some white seabass and halibut. There's also a mixture of ocean whitefish, sheephead, sculpin, calico bass, sand bass being caught.
...and that's this weeks Hometown Station fish report. Halibut Hal reporting.
