Went out with Joefish on Thursday and was a witness to what could be the hottest hand in San Diego right now. I was working crankbaits while Joe was going after the C-rig bite. Joe caught a couple of smaller bass, while I was apparently keyed in to the catfish bite . I caught a 9.75 lb Blue and a 3 lb channel, while Joe made the decision of the day and started after the topwater bite. Joe is a friend of mine and has been kind enough to show me the ropes, but I'm telling you, it was as if he knew what was coming and it was like watching an artist create a masterpiece. His first cast was terrible (happens to the best of us, I guess!) yet he had a fish blow up on it anyway. A couple of casts later, he had a good one and boated a 9 lber (I think, Joe correct me on the weights if I'm wrong). A short time later, he tossed the bait into the perfect spot and the fish hit it before he could even begin to reel it in. This time it was nearly an 8lber! These were the biggest bass I'd ever seen and to Joe, these are almost becoming routine! Just completely crazy to me. I know this sounds like an advertisement for his guide service, but I am being completely truthful when I say this -- if you are looking for larger bass at our local lakes, give Joe a call and book a trip with him as soon as possible. Worth every penny!
