It looks like sportfishing off the cool waters of San Diego recently kicked off into high gear.
After 40 minutes of trying to land a 177-pound tuna, Capt. Ryan Bostian finally prevailed with what turned out to be the catch of the Memorial Day weekend.
In fact, Bostian, who was aboard The San Diego took top honors over the holiday as The Sportfishing Association of California started its summer season.
Besides Bostian’s catch, others aboard The San Diego fleet observed large schools of tuna between 15 and 177 pounds feeding on schools of anchovy. It was a glorious sight as the captains aboard also witnessed even more tuna “jumping, breezing and boiling” as the fish fed on the bait schools.
According to its website: The Sportfishing Association of California was founded in 1972 by industry leaders speaking out on behalf of their interests.
SAC works with several agencies and stakeholders, including the California Department of Fish and Wildlife, United States Coast Guard, Navy, National Marine Fisheries Service, Federal Communications Commission, Congress, California Legislature, and the Mexican Government. SAC employees serve on multiple advisory panels in the state and federal arena, and represent industry interests on a variety of topics.
