Who knows. They say they are working on the vertical walls offsite.

Holding out for Spanos to sell Chargers so they can come back and build stadium on the launch

Government at work. If it was important to them it would be done by now.

Brought to san diego by the folks who are going to build trumps wall! Should have denied their bid and sent them away.

They don't care about the taxpayers. That's why they continue to lose revenue.

That's it...piss & moan but don't do anything that would help the situation. Safe place to be.

What's the hold up!?..

Grunion Run Tonight!
For those not familiar, grunion is a species of fish that leaves the water at night to spawn on beaches during the spring and summer months throughout Southern California. For four consecutive nights beginning on the nights of the full and new moons, spawning occurs after high tides and continues for several hours. Peak spawning is from late March to early June. During the open season (March, June, July, August, and September), a California fishing license is required for those 16 years and older. Grunion may be taken by hand only – no holes may be dug in the beach to entrap them.

Here are the best times to see them:

Wednesday, August 9, 2017, 10:45 p.m. to 12:45 a.m.
Thursday, August 10, 2017, 11:25 p.m. to 1:25 a.m.
Monday, August 21, 2017, 9:35 p.m. to 11:35 p.m.
Tuesday, August 22, 2017, 10:20 p.m. to 12:20 a.m.

U.S. Government Will Not List Pacific Bluefin Tuna as an Endangered Species.

PRESS RELEASE FROM ASA

Alexandria, VA – August 7, 2017 – The American Sportfishing Association (ASA) approves the decision made today by NOAA’s National Marine Fisheries Service (NOAA Fisheries) to turn down a proposal to list Pacific Bluefin Tuna under the Endangered Species Act.

“NOAA's science-based decision affirms ASA’s position that international efforts are needed to conserve and build Pacific Bluefin Tuna stocks, however, it’s important to understand that these popular sportfish are in no way endangered” said Scott Gudes, ASA’s Government Affairs vice president.

NOAA conducted a comprehensive year-long review after a coalition of environmental-based organizations proposed that Bluefin fishing be banned in U.S. waters. ASA, supported by the California Coastal Conservation Association, the Congressional Sportsmen's Foundation and Coastside Fishing Club and other organizations, submitted comprehensive comments in December 2016 noting that these tuna stocks are recovering and all but five percent of the fishery occurs outside U.S. waters in Asia and Mexico.

In its review, NOAA found that most recent stock assessments for Pacific Bluefin Tuna projected population increases and that the species is “on a positive trajectory.” NOAA noted that the greatest threat is overfishing by non-domestic commercial fleets.

Gudes continued, “Bluefin Tuna fishing is an important sport fishery in Southern California that has an economic impact in that area. We made this clear in our comments to the petition. August is the high season for recreational fishing for these pelagic fish. NOAA Fisheries’ decision is welcome news to anglers and the businesses that depend on recreational fishing, from San Diego up the coast to the Los Angeles area.”

We already have five anglers for our Cedros Sportfishing trip. Only need a few more to make this trip happen. Don't wait too long before we sell out.

Just an update on the Shelter Island Launch Ramp. As of today they are still working on the excavator that has been down for 6 weeks now. Progress on the ramp is going much slower than expected. As far as we know, the launch ramp is not scheduled to reopen until late March or early April 2018.

Right now the launch ramp only has one lane open for launching your boat, with wait times ranging anywhere from 30 minutes to 1.5 hours during the weekend. So you might want to use one of the other launch ramps.

Other launch ramps: J Street (Chula Vista), Pepper Park (National City). These ramps don't open until 6am and close at sunset, so you might want to launch from Mission Bay.

The Mission Bay launch ramps are South Shores located near Sea World or Dana Landing.

Probably have to delay Open Bay Bass until end of March, behind of April. We will have to wait and see if they can finish ahead of schedule.

Nancy De Vore Murry the damn excavator is broke. Lol. That's why they haven't started doing anything over there........ but really though? Can't go rent a different one 🤔

and the bait in mission bay was terrible yesterday-half rolled over in first hour!

The problem with taking the lowest bid and not the best bid.

Broken down excavator? WTH. Lame !!

How will this affect next year's Bay Bass Tournament?

Great day today on a 3/4-day charter aboard the Liberty, out of Fisherman's Landing. Captain Taro took 30 of our San Diego Anglers (and friends) to the Coronado Islands. There, we caught over 100 Yellowtail and lots of Calico Bass. Couldn't have asked for a nicer day.! ... See MoreSee Less
