FISHING IN MISSION BAY / LA JOLLA ~ FISHING IN MISSION BAY / LA JOLLA ~ Lat. 117 17 30 West ~ Long. 32 49 30 North Species found here are YellowTail, Bass, Barracuda, Bonito, Sheepshead, Halibut, Mackeral, Smaller Shark and many others. I recommend you head on up to the La Jolla Kelpbeds. They are located 6 miles North of the Mission Bay Jetty on a 330 North heading. This is THE spot for local fishing. Why not try the South kelp or off Northwest. The canyon is also excellent grounds for the thresher sharks in the spring time May-June when the water temp is 65-68 degrees. Look for big bait balls in the canyon edges and slow troll Big Mackeral. Try the 100 ft – 180 ft depths for the Yellowtail, Bonito, etc… Questions?
