The fishing weather at Santa Rosalia this week has not been the best, with the hurricane passing way to the south, and some effects on local conditions. Santa Rosalia was windy a few days and had choppy seas too, with air temperatures still in the high 80s to mid 90s and a good amount of humidity as well.
Friday saw the most favorable fishing water this week, so I was invited by Ed Hogan of San Bruno for a day of fishing Saturday. However, I received a call on the VHF around 3:30 and was asked to look outside. I looked into the darkness to see lots of flashes to the backside of the island. Scratch that fishing trip. Later on around 6:00 a.m. it started raining.
Water temperatures most likely are still in the 82-85 degree range around Santa Rosalia, but from what I can see around the shore here the visibility is way down, maybe only 10-15 feet.
Okay that is it for August, and only a month to go, and it starts all over again...great fishing. Even when I'm able to fish I still keep pretty busy with photos and computer stuff.
