Here is this weeks KHTS fishing report and a report on my charter trip on “Stardust” – complete with pictures:
1) Castaic Lake….The bass bite has been very good this past week; the early morning hours are producing the best results; try Fish Arm and Pete’s Point. For trout action, try Hawk’s Nest. Catfish are being slayed at Suicide Point. Panfish continue to bite in the big lake and the Lagoon.
2) Pyramid Lake….There’s still plenty of black bass biting in the shallows, along with a few largemouth and smallmouth bass. Try the deeper water by the Dam and also Spanish Point for trout. Still some small stripers to be had trolling the deep water over schools of bait. Catfish continue to bite in the Coves.
3) Lake Piru….There’s plenty of crappie to be had in the area of Reasoner Cove. In the shallow water there has been a very good bass bite with many limits reported. Also, bluegill and redear are biting pretty good.
4) Lake Cachuma….Post spawn largemouth bass are biting all over the lake. Decent trout fishing at Harveys or the Mohawk areas, mostly in the afternoon. If you want catfish, try the shallow Coves. Crappie continue to bite at Johnsons Bay and the Narrows.
Landings from Long Beach to Marina Del Rey:
Limits and near limits of assorted rockfish from all the landings. A few more bass are starting to show with the warmer temps. On Sunday and Monday, the “Option” a 50 foot charter boat from Long Beach, caught quite a few nice white seabass for the lucky passengers on board! This boat/skipper has some “open party” trips coming up; contact Pierpoint Landing for details.
The “Cobra” on Saturday nabbed a 42 pound “barndoor” halibut for one happy angler! In addition, limits of rockfish, six lingcod and a few sculpin were caught on the trip. The Cobra runs out of CISCO Sportfishing in Oxnard. The “Sea Jay” with 12 anglers was able to bring in two legal halibut , and 4 lingcod along with 72 rockfish. The 3/4 day and overnight boats are nabbing easy limits of rockfish with lots of big red snappers and quite a few lingcod.
………….well, until next week, this is Halibut Hal reporting for your Hometown Station, KHTS-1220AM.
