Halibut Hal bringing you this weeks local fishing reports for both freshwater and saltwater enthusiasts.....Starting with with our local lakes, here's the latest:
1) Castaic Lake....The striped bass continue to boil all over the lake! These are mostly 2 - 5 pound fish. Good action on the bluegill and catfish, mostly in the coves.
Crappie fishing has been slower than last week.
2) Lake Pyramid....Stiped bass from 1 - 3 pounds continue to boil. Try the early morning or late afternoon bites. Bluegill and catfish are biting pretty good in the coves.
3) Lake Piru....The bass and crappie are biting good in most coves. The catfish bite has slowed.
4) Lake Cachuma....Very good bass bite at about 20 foot depth. The catfish bite is decent in the shallow coves. A good bluegill bite continues this week.
Here's a Deal!.....For $25 leaving tonight (9/20) from Daveys Locker in Newport Beach. Leaving the dock at 7PM and returning at midnight, the boat will be searching for giant humboldt squid! If the skipper locates them, It should be an exciting inkfest for all aboard.....
Landings from Long Beach to Marina Del Rey:
The action has slowed this past week. Most of the fish being caught are rockfish. In addition, there are ocean whitefish, sculpin, calico and sand bass, sheephead, lingcod and an occasional halibut or white seabass also being caught.

Biting the best is the rockfish. The outer islands are getting the bigger red snappers and lingcod, with a couple boats this weekend bringing in a few nice quality halibut. The 1/2 day and 3/4 day boats are concentrating on the rockfish, along with sand and calico bass, sheephead, sculpin and lingcod.
Well, until next week.....Halibut Hal reporting for 1220AM KHTS.
