(Seriola lalandi)

Yellowtail Amberjacks are prime game fish to go for off the San Diego coast. Two fishery choices include the SoCal waters and the Baja California waters.

The former will be more seasonal, with lesser numbers of fish remaining throughout the spawning season in the winter, but with additional resurgences of large individuals in squid spawning spots at this time. These fish will require more finesse, as they are more used to being fished.

The latter will produce larger, more abundant, seasonally more stable and less educated fish, but usually requires multi-day trips, travel identification and Mexican fishing licenses.

Tuna fishing down here can always be a hit or miss, avoid those days after a full moon and you should be able to get on them.
