    The Sand Bass fishing and Sculoin fishing is starting pick up a little on the half days. We had some clean water come through and I started to go to work with a sculpin bomb. Ended up with 4 sand bass up to five pounds and a couple decent sculpin. The fish are really hugging the bottom right now. Sliding eggs are good but it seems the more in the structure you can be the better the grade of fish is.

    More like a dangly bit to wave a bait in a fishies face. The whole premise of a sculpin bomb is that you are trying to put the bait directly in the fished face. The braid is to really just attach the hook the lead. It helps with a little bit of movement but it’s not really needed.

    Because I had them onhand, I used a split ring to a ringed hook for that bit of variable movement. Seems to work well enough. I do have a couple spare torpedos that I can tie a hook to, to draw a comparison to.

    Maybe jump on the Dolphin this Sunday ...

    It’s a great gig and I’m glad you’re able to get your little ones out! Keep them interested!

    How heavy of line do you go on your bombs? I was using #20 last time and only lost one sinker to the snags.

    20 works but I prefer 40lb. Honestly flouro really stands out for abrasion resistance. Like a 20ft leader

    The long leader aspect really holds true structure fishing sandbass....the big ones will dog you into a hole so fast. So, when you are fishing braid a long leader helps to horse them out, where if you had a short "normal" 4' leader to braid you would saw yourself off.

    Fishing out of long beach on some of the twilight boats scuplin and sandbass fishing i have seen guys use 15' 80# leaders even....and it definitely wasn't overkill.

    Ive always just attached a siwash to the sinker....think there is any advantage to the braid instead, or meh?

    Damn I don't even a have a rod that pull on 80lb hard. Heaviest rod I have is a Rainshadow rated 30-60lb max 10 oz sinker.

    That would work perfect really. They are typically stiffer rods, and it it's just the line thickness you are going for, not a reel or rod that needs to be able to pound out 30lbs of drag. I typically fish 65lb braid to my leader. A kelp cutter rig works great with an extended leader. Straight 50lb mono works great too but you cant work a jig as vertically.
