Fishing report: Wednesday, Nov. 29
PICKS OF THE WEEK
1. The bite on bluefin tuna moves back into the top spot this week, even though the size of the fish went from ìbehemothî to ìqualityî over the past week. The pigs over 100 pounds are still out there, but it was two-fish limit fishing on 20 to 60-pounders this week. Most of the action is on 1 1/2-day trips out of San Diego. For an update on the action, check with 976-tuna.com.
2. The big swimbait bite for stripers is starting now that trout plant season is in full swing.
