                 "Gran fin de semana de la pesca en San Diego!!!"

 

I thought this first picture would get your attention! Unfortunately no sharks were found eager to bite for us so we settled for a few other fish species to bring back for dinner. We did however manage plenty of fish down in the Coronada Islands in Mexico to keep us busy.


Great trip this past weekend to San Diego. For those that have never been you must check it out. What better city exist out there where it's a constant 70's during the day and only gets into the lows of 50, pretty hard to beat.


5:30 am Boatside

We made it down and tried the tourist thing down to Tijuana, big mistake and will never return. Not only is this a 3rd world country but you better make sure to drive a tank to navigate through those crazy streets. We were only there a bit to grab a bite to eat, a cerveza and left promptly.

An early 4:30 wake up call was way too early for me but the coffee was awaiting so I was ready for some fishing. We set off for a fun filled day of fishing in the Coronada Islands, a set of Islands just below the Mexican border.

After a bit of chumming it didn't take long to hook up.

     
ooooh Barracuuda!

Fish species caught most of the day ranged from Barracuda's, Halibut, Sea/Sand Bass, Yellowtail and a few other fish that I had no idea what they were but fought so well!

    
                 Hotel with a View in the San Diego Harbor....oh Yeah!

 

We took in some great sites from dinner around Point Loma, Sunset Cliffs, lunch in La jolla, and we spent a few hours driving up and down the coast making our way to Del mar.All in all I would say a pretty nice weekend and with great seafood, perfect weather, fishing, and gorgeous scenary up and down the coasts. An ideal destination for a quick, or long vacation stop over.
