The deep see fishing off the coast of California is great this time of year. The weather has been nice with only a few storms passing through. Generally, when a cold front moves thorough an area the fishing slows down considerably, but this time of year, the cold fronts move through very quickly and the fishing recovers just as quick.
Just off the California coast the striped bass are plentiful and hard fighting. They are biting well on spoons, crank baits and live baits. The live baits that generally do best are herring.
The blue fin tuna is in the area and they are biting very well. These aggressive fish are plentiful in some regions but scarce in others. Using a good fishing guide is advisable to get the most out of your fishing trip. Some of the guides post fishing videos to show their catches. A couple of these are amazing.
If you happen to be in a slow area, or a cold front is approaching, you can also play some fishing games. Blue fin fishing games, out of all fishing games, are some of the most favorite of the free online fishing games, even more popular than shark fishing games.
The skip jacks have also moved into the water off of the California coast. They are fishing well with live baits as well as crank baits. The average size this year is about two feet and weighs around 10 pounds.
The albacore have arrived as well and the fishing is good for these great tasting fish. They are such a fast swimming fish they always give a fishing fanatic a good time. The albacore are running between 2.5 feet and 3 feet and weighting in around 30 pounds.
