Hot August Nights And Hot August Bites


For all the anglers who watch the fish counts closely, the month of July did not disappoint. The white seabass and halibut bite was on fire and the weather decided to play along for an epic month of fishing. Anticipate August to produce similar results for the angler looking for that trophy fish.

Big biscuits, barn-door halibut and speedy yellows are all on the menu for August. Water temperature starts to peak in August providing the stamina needed for these feisty fish to go wide open. Lets hope for a few tropical storms and a consistent south swell come August, these weather patterns push up warm water often bringing in exotic species with it.

One of the most exciting fish to anticipate catching this August is the fast & furious bonito. These little tuna are known to make an appearance in late summer early fall, and they arrive in force. Typically weighing an average of 8lbs with fish often seen in the 12-15lb ranges, bonito are not only a challenge on light line but are also a blast to catch on top water jigs like a Tady 45 or a Salas light.

 

Summer is also a great time to take a kid fishing!
