I will be making a road trip from my home in Carlsbad, CA, in North San Diego County to San Carlos in mid Jan. of next year. I will be bringing my kayak and fishing inshore.


Where should I start out? I hear that Pt. San Antonio will be a good area to try. What inshore species are likely to be available at that time? I will likely be casting plastics and crocodiles. Will deep jigging for yellowtail be worth trying? Should I use a light wire leader? I will also bring some frozen squid for bait fishing.


Any information will be greatly appreciated.


Thanks,


Paul

Definitely bring stuff for deep jigging for yellows! Knife jigs, butterfly jigs, anything that is that style of fast-sinking jigs. Pink/white, blue/white, yellow/green.

San Antonio is a great spot to try, given it's proximity to shore.

It wouldnt hurt to bring some light wire leaders if sierra are still around.

Plastics get chewed up pretty fast down here.

Wire isn't needed, but fluorocarbon can help with the rocks. Mostly just yellowtail then. Yes, San Antonio. We've had some down by Hay tack the last few years outside Miramar, and the Seamounts are close from the beach club. Your best bet would be jigging, but a small planer board and Clark Spoon could work.

The toros showed up today inside Honeymoon. Had to swim out to untangle the first one and then they blew up the entire bay and I got burned. Then went three for three off the paddleboard - all on poppers.

Thanks to all for the great information. I will take some light wire in case I run into some sierra, but normally fluorocarbon is better.


What inshore species can I expect to catch in mid January?

If my boat is ship shape in January, I might be willing to haul your boat out to the island and let you fish there for 2-4 hours or so, while we poke around the island.

How long is your kayak? My boat is 25 ft but I have a bridge, so it would have to fit in the sole, somehow. Maybe just a share of gas out and back? It's a diesel, so pretty efficient.

Usually the Sierra and bonita will be gone by then. You will find triggerfish, snapers, cabrilla, croakers, etc.

Thank you for your very generous proposal. My kayak in a Cobra Fish and Dive, with a 36 inch beam and LOA of 12 ft 6 inches. Might be tough to fit in the cockpit.
