Tony Reyes Fishing Report May 1st – May 6th

May 9, 2011 – 10:43 am

The first Tony Reyes trip has returned and the boat will run through November. The water was a little cold and there was some wind the first few days. The boat was chartered was by the amazing radio personality Rick Maxa from the “Let’s Talk Hook Up” radio show.


I don’t have exact counts yet but I have a general report for you guys. They caught yellowtail from the 10 – 20 pound range. Large and medium cabrilla were wrestled in as well. They were able to catch some medium sized white sea bass, I wonder if they fished The Golden Reef for those. Spotted bass and pargo were also landed during the trip.


There was an abundance of small bait in the water but they were unable to catch any to use as bait. Tony expects the next trip to be better as the water warms up and live bait becomes more available. Bring some frozen squid down with you on the trip, it works wonders on the bottom.

Irvine Lake Fish Report April 20th, 2011

April 20, 2011 – 1:22 pm
IRVINE LAKE CRAPPIE GOING WILD; 13-14 RAINBOW TOPS CATCHES The annual late April crappie explosion at Irvine Lake is going off right on time, reported Jimmy Getty at the Pro Shop. “The crappie bite has busted wide open”, gushed Getty. “There were lots of nice fish being caught, especially at Santiago Flats, Sierra Cove, and along the west shore. Best lures are white or yellow Atomic Tubes. The little 1/32 ounce jigs were best because the fish are mostly shallow, and there are even some sight fish available.” Read the rest of this entry »
