    Launched at 530am, back in the by by 845am

    Tide was close to bottoming out from a big swing.

    Fished from 30-150 ft

    Calicos were biting non-stop. Some XL ones mixed in.

    Regulation Nice!!
    How much did the Big one weigh?
    Or How many inches was it.
    I’ll do the math.
    Thanks!

    Some great looking fish. Well done. Using rainbow trout swimbaits for Calico Bass brings back memories. I used to personally airbrush the 6” rainbow trout swimbaits we made and they won numerous calico bass tournaments by the pro-staff team casting to boiler rocks.

    These rainbow trout are over 20 years old and have faded and yellowed but are still in good enough condition to fish. Unfortunately the iridescence in the dark green back color and the pink on the sides has faded away.

    Spectacular few hours, I'd say!! We were out off the end of Pt. Loma pitching flies on Friday... let's just say we didn't match your performance! Good show, and thanks for the pics.
