Corvina action continues to run hot and cold around Red Hill as corvina move in and out of the dike areas, biting readily when near the shore.
But the shoreline is ringed by a 50-yard band of small tilapia ranging in size from ¼-inch all the way up to 3 inches. It's a wonder any corvina bite at all with the amount of bait available.
Water color is excellent, which suggests plenty of oxygen, and croakers are being caught in great numbers by fishermen working the dikes along the south end of the Salton Sea.
Water temperatures continue to drop and are now dipping below 88 degrees. Some experts believe that when the water temperature drops under 85 degrees the chance of any major algae blooms will be minimized.
