976-BITE Fish Reports
I got a report from 976bite.com webmaster Dennis Albert today who was fishing aboard the Alluminator and who provided some more detail about their trip. He said they were fishing more around the northeast edge of the Dumping Grounds rather than the southeast edge as previously reported. He said they got their 1 yellowfin and 1 albacore around the 3140 latitude at the Dumping Grounds which would have you on the edge of the Dumping Grounds in the area of latitude and longitude coordinates 3140 and 11824 at 84 miles 212 degrees from Point Loma.
Dennis reported that they got the yellowfin on a purple color feather with a rootbeer color head. The albacore and the skippies they caught were on a blue and green color feather with a lime green head. The cedar plug and other color feathers they were trolling did not get bit. Dennis said that the water they found out at the Dumping Grounds was ranging from 64.5 to 65.2 degrees.

I talked with private boater Dennis Hytinen on the Alluminator who went out albacore fishing today and covered a lot of water for a 20 pound yellowfin, a 2 pound albacore and some skipjack.
He spent most of the day out around the southeast corner of the Dumping Grounds which puts you out about 90 miles 205 degrees from Point Loma. He said that he caught both the albacore and the yellowfin in 64.3 degree water and had water as warm as 65 degrees.
He said the weather conditions were deteriorating on the outside. He said that coming home it was pretty nice once you got inside of 30 miles from Point Loma. The further out you went the worse the weather got until he said that it was almost un-fishable outside of 85 miles from Point Loma. As always, be sure to check the latest marine weather forecast before you go.
