David Adamson caught a 100+ pound yellowfin tuna on Monday fishing aboard the Coral Sea in US waters. This has been a truly spectacular summer for yellowfin tuna in local waters, but those caught here rarely exceed even 50 pounds, with most in the 20 pound or under range.
This one weighed in at 101.8 pounds despite a large hammerhead shark taking the tail section of the fish during the fight. It was reportedly caught on a stop the boat made on a kelp paddy 30 miles northwest of San Diego near San Clemente and Catalina Islands. "I caught him on a kelp with three other boats there.

The California Spiny Lobster Season opens for recreational fishing on Saturday, September 27th at 12:01 AM and will run through Wednesday, March 18th.
It is time to start looking forward to the California lobster season. I predict that it is going to be a great year for lobster with the water being as warm as it is. Lobsters molt more often when its warm, growing faster, and thus making for more legals.
I have been getting all of my hoop nets ready when I'm not out on the offshore trips right now. And I do have some spots available for the first month of the season - which is usually great fishing. Now is the time to book before those spots fill up when the first reports drop. I'm looking forward to this season, and I hope you are too! In the meantime, check out some photos from last season.
