We are starting to see a few more species being caught this month. Seems like bluefin are showing down around the butterfly, 60 mile bank and are heading towards San Clementi Island. The more consistent bite has been at night time.

Yellowtail have made their presence around the Coronados. This bite has been on and off again . All dependent on water temperature. There have been some yellowtail found further south on kelp patties, but not a lot of biters.  Big Bonito have been trolled up around the Coronado Canyon and in front of the 302. There has been a lot of red tide from La Jolla to Point Loma. When water is clean, calico fishing has been good.

June 22nd we will be holding our Tuna Seminar at the Dockside Deli at Marina Village. John White will be giving us all the latest intel on fishing the bluefin. As always there will be a very generous raffle held.  The seminar starts at 1:00 pm and food will be served till 3:00. Burgers and sandwiches with a drink will be available for $10.00. Hope to see everybody there. Please spread the word among your friends and fellow dock neighbors.

Mark your Calendars for the MBMC Marlin Tournament. This year it has been scheduled September 27-29.  More information to follow next Oops line.

We want to welcome all new members for the month of May.  Thank you for all your support. We are always looking for new members interested in helping out the board.

On a sad note we want to acknowledge the passing of past member Don Ware. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Don’s family from the MBMC family.

Fish of the Month for May went to Paul Himmelberger for his nice 6 pound red caught on the Encounter. The boat was captained by Ken Yasuda.

No qualifying fish were submitted by any of the Entries for the May Halibut/White Seabass Tournament.  Maybe the fishing will pick up soon.

Our Month-Long Yellowtail Tournament is on all this month (June).  Get your entries in!  Click for Entry Form and Rules. Yellowtail are showing up down the line, at La Jolla, and the Islands should start biting once the water conditions get better there!

Remember, please send photos of your fish of the month entries or any other great on the water pictures so we can get them on our website.

Hope great fishing is in for everybody this summer.
