TFT Southern California Weekly Land Based Shark Report:
Activity slowed down on the VC piers this week, but the sand action heated up! A nice sevengill as reported on casted gear in the Ventura area, a very welcome sign! Swell and weed are a bit of a struggle, but certain beaches are fishable with patience, so go stick it out and get tight!
Los Angeles County:
LA county has been on a roll with the smaller bottom dwellers. Bat Rays and Shovelnose are on the menu big time! There have been some exotics around too, Yellowtail and Round Herring have shown up at the piers, demanding the attention of any local angler. There was a very large Black Seabass landed this week in LA, talk about bycatch!
The OC has been quiet again. Large swell grounding most of the landbased crew. The Zebra Perch are still around, although sight fishing for them is hard with the rip currents and swell. The activity in the bays has been holding steady, solid pick bite on the rays and smaller shark species. Exotics have made a showing in OC too, although not as vibrantly as LA county.
San Diego County:
Big bass seem to be the menu items for SD county still. A few smaller sevens and soups are still hanging around but for the most part summer tends to be slower on the reef dwelling shark species that far south. North SD county again saw some larger grade animals free swimming, but they either had no interest in the smaller bait offerings or were out of range.
