    Hello all,

    Headed to fish mission bay and get out of the heat in east county tomorrow and next week. Taking my 8yr old and 15yr old with me, looking for some spots to fish, baits to use? I just started fishing San Diego bay and have been having success with jigpara and swim baits with underspin heads, looking for cheaper easier baits for little guy. Thank in advance.

    Any 3” weedles baits is my best advice. Sometimes weedles costs a little more but you lose way less rigs. Some of the back coves fish well. Good luck

    If you want to try pumping shrimp and fishing at Bonita Cove/Mariner's Basin, PM me. Wrong tide this weekend...but weekend of the 20th and 21st would work. Ya gotta be there at 8 a.m. though to catch the tide right AND be able to get parking. OTL finals are that weekend so the lots will fill up.
    I have pumps and spare spinning rods if you need 'em.

    8 yr old... I’d say gulp mullets on the drop shot. From shore, 2-3’ weight to hook. Should have decent hook up ratio and rarely have the hook hung up grass or rocks.
