Monterey/Santa Cruz

Rating - Good   

Tuesday, Oct 12 2021
Allen Bushnell of Santa Cruz Kayak Fishing and Surfcasting Guide Service said, Weather conditions are holding, and the big bluefin bite of 2021 is still on! If anything, it is getting better as local anglers take advantage and learn from their mistakes. This week saw constant and consistent reports of boats finding, hooking, and landing multiple tuna from a widespread area. The key spots are located off of Point Sur or near the Finger Canyons 10 miles west of Davenport. In the Sur area, the giant tuna are as close as 6 miles from the beach! At the Fingers, the distance offshore is more like 10 to 12 miles. Both locations take some travel time from port, but so far, no one is complaining. There are temperature breaks out there, but they key factor seems to be getting to the canyon edges and just looking for feeding fish, jumpers, and breezers.Read more at: https://www.fresnobee.com/sports/outdoors/hunting-fishing/article254887727.html#storylink=cpy
