    So I’ve been fishing Oside pier for a few months. Last week I hooked my first good mud marlin and I’ve got the bug. Got my tag now and I’m ready to roll out. So, where are the best places for bat rays and leopards? I need som more.

    Can't advise you on north county.. in mission bay, ski beach, north fiesta, fisherman's channel, de anza point and crown point are all classic spots for big bat rays..

    Good to know, do you find night or day better? Incoming or outgoing? Thanx for the info!

    Night incoming.. higher tides around when you fish are nicer, if possible, imo, especially if you chum.. fresher bait better when possible, smelt, mackerel, needlefish, fresh dead sardines from the private boaters..

    Anyone wanna chime in with north county spots? That’s a lot easier for me. But I think I’ll go try the bay manana, thank you for the info.

    Any sandy beach will hold bats. Fresh mackerel, bonito, or squid works best for me. TBH, I haven't really encountered many will all this warm water though.

    If you’re ever down here in MB feel free to PM me on here and I can show you some of my favorite spots for big mud marlins! I’m sure these pictures give that away though:emoji_wink: Also big shovels, butterflies, palegics, and smoothies! But bats always tend to have the better of the fights.
