Fishing in Redondo Beach

"More to Sea"

Since the last edition, fishing has gotten into high gear. Finding the live squid for bait has made all the difference. We have put some really big fish on board in the last couple of weeks. White sea bass and halibut over 40 pounds have hit the deck in the last week or two. Although it tailed off for a couple of days, things look to be on the rebound. We had several days of June Gloom that seemed to slow the bite. The last few days have shown improvement in the late afternoon as the half day boat Redondo Special found some eager bass, sargo, sheephead, and one white sea bass getting with the program.

Captain Eric has produced some great results on the surface fish in the last two weeks. He has had some good scores on big sea bass and most recently a 40 pound plus halibut Sunday. When the surface bite tailed off for a couple of days, the rockfish jumped on the squid. The last two days the surface action started getting back in the swing of things. The Redondo Special had great bass fishing with one white sea bass on Tuesday and two more yesterday.

The three quarter day boat Tradition has also gotten in on the action with some nice trophy sea bass and halibut.

Captain Gary on the Highliner has also taken advantage of the availability of live squid. He has had the candy bait in the tanks which resulted in steady action for most of the last weekend.
Craig Collins with his "little" 12 pound halibut on the Highliner.

I guess the 12 pounder was "little" because his buddy Dann Thompson caught a 40 pounder the week before on the Highliner.

Sterling Tanouye recently got into the action with his 45 pound white sea bass on the Highliner.

Captain David Yumori has also been getting into good surface action with the squid. He has broken into the sea bass counts on a couple of trips, but he lost his camera, so no photos this time. A new camera is on the way. David needs it because he has been catching his share of the big ones.

The boats went out last night and tanked up with live squid. There should be plenty for the upcoming weekend as the action is heating up. Be sure to get your chance at one of the great fish that are biting the squid. Make reservations for a trip or to book a charter on one of the boats by calling Redondo Beach Sportfishing at 310 372-2111.

The private boats have also continued their success with some BIG halibut and occasional sea bass from our adjacent beaches. We are starting to see a presence of bonito back in the harbor as the water temp warms along with catches of halibut, bass and a reported 50+ lb white sea bass from areas around the bait receiver.
It is time to dust off the kayaks, SUP's and trailer boats to come and enjoy the local water activities.

Also don't forget the upcoming 4th of July event at the Seaside Lagoon and the popular fireworks display at the harbor entrance. Unsurpassed viewing from all areas of the marina !! The Seaside Lagoon event starts at 2 pm with family fun activities planned throughout the day to include live bands, food and drink service, USCG helicopter rescue demo, harbor sunset fireworks cruise and water activities to name a few. Fireworks go off at 9pm synced to patriotic music from Jack FM 93.1. Go to for advanced ticket sales and detailed information.

Have a safe and happy Independence Day !!!!

Thank your customer, tell them how valuable they are to you, but don't go overboard. Insincerity is easy to spot.
