    You’re getting close to exceeding the amount of questions vs responses per article 105.9a in the sdfish bylaws

    I understand this is the age of info at our finger tips but you’ll never learn more than putting your boots to the ground and trial and error. You have to just put in the time

    I got 2 off the north jetty right after the graffiti house this afternoon on cut pieces of frozen smelt. One legal and one just barely illegal. Carolina Rig with a lil chunk of frozen smelt. Hit up the Asian grocers for some sardines :emoji_call_me:

    Edit, sorry I see you said sand bass. Well the guy next to me was pulling them up on shrimp I think, sand bass that is if that helps haha

    Yeah. It's just that I am planning to go over to mission bay and do a long session to hopefully catch some fish like calicoes and sand bass but I am waiting for this covid thing to die down a bit so I can get out and fish. The reason I am asking all these questions is that I haven't really had much luck catching fish so I want to get this info so I can catch some fish. Sorry. You guys will see a post on my findings soon I hope.

    Not so hard. If you aren't scared of the virus, welcome to fish with me for some species sometime. I get tested weekly, btw... I can get you to catch some fish.

    In response to the jetty, I would avoid that like the plague right now. Hit it up yesterday, waves were massive and the wind was no help either. I was checking out the channel side and got my back splashed by a wave from the surf. Basically the waves were massive, and the water was all murky with floating sand as a result. Never had good luck fishing those conditions, so I would stay away from that right now. Bays are good, as there's not random tsunamis here and there.

    Yepp! Our plan was go to the end but waves were a hell no lol. Was getting consistent takes on the smelt tho and 2 to show 13/14inchers in the murky water. Wind wasn't an issue luckily today

    South Jetty, near the fence. Use clam/salted clam on a carolina/knocker with size 6 hooks. Pretty consistent for me if I was trying to catch just sandies. Use Shrimp and youll also catch calico, perch, black croaker, and lobsters.

    Rather than say avoid, I’d say Not a place I recommend right now lol. Some of the waves looked doable but then it really picked up when Shawn H were about to walk further. Saw a roller form and balls went straight to my chest. We pretty much sprinted back as far as we could and we were about half way out. Luckily, it died down the closer it came to us. Not gonna lie, that one definitely gave me a good scare.

    Out of all the spots in MB, and my experiences finding sandies, crown point shores has given up the most for me. The cruddy part to that is, they are all small. It’s a nursery over there. I think I’ve only landed two maybe three legal sandies in MB ever, two inside Quivira Basin, and one off south jetty in the channel. Your best bet is San Diego Bay in the winter, which is now. Midway, seaport village, grape st, and by the moored boats by the coast guard station, yes the spots that say no fishing. Very active. But you can waste your time in MB if you like ;)

    Spend some time out there, it’s a grind targeting a specific species with bigger baits (other than spottie). Slow roll some 1/2oz to 1oz swimbaits.

    Hospitality is a great place to start. Have only managed to catch them in MB. But dj thrillz gave some solid advice.
