    Fished a spot in mission bay this morning 8-11am. High tide near 7 foot at 8, current was moving fast once the tide started going out. Lots of debris in the water headed out the channel. Nothing special today, caught 3 calico bass, 2 spotted bass, a rock wrasse and a blacksmith. Calicos were dinks, the spotties were solid grade, 12-13", one of them was abnormally fat and decently heavy. Threw everything back today, though the fatter spotty was gut hooked, not sure if he made it. Nothing memorable but 7 fish 4 species not too bad. The wrasse assault of last month seems to have slowed, not as many bait thief bites today, a few solid tugs that didn't get hooked or came off. Shrimp for bait, threw a lucky craft a bit as well but no action on that. Tight lines

    Females are the colorful ones in the Spottie world. Males are white jawed.

    That's what I had heard, that the females have the purple/red coloration on the bottom of the jaw and neck.

    The females are yellow. The purple pink and red are from fish eating on clam beds.
