    March 21 & 22, 2008
    Research indicated that the strong tides, full moon, warm weather, calm seas, and no clouds were going to come together at the perfect time. I had been thinking of this trip for 3 weeks hoping the weather held out. Everything was as good as it gets except for some early evening strong winds which died as the night went on. Water temp was on the cool side at 55. The Seals & Sea Lions were mostly sleeping. Our 5 fish stringer went 34+ pounds. Not our biggest stringer, but certainly one of the best. Each individual had a stringer over 21 pounds with Doug personally over 25+. Cassidy with the biggest fish. We left the Islands in a strong bite as the bite improved as the evening went on. Doug was rocked by 2 bruisers. We all have stories of the big one getting away. You know its a great night when a bass at 5lbs 10oz does not cull out another fish. Two fish over 7, two over 6, two over 5, two over 4 and several big 3's. Lots of 2 pounders. I was taking pictures constantly. Fish bit various forms of plastic hung on various forms of lead. Unibutter was used by John & I with great results. Doug is a purest and declines to use sent at all. He was hot stick for the night. I love it when a plan comes together. An epic night when for most anglers San Diego County has been very slow for Calico Bass. This is now 2 weekends in a row with over 50+ bass coming over the rails. It was a pleasure to fish with Doug and John. We both enjoyed watching Doug put on a clinic in nothing short of beautiful art form on how to fish a tube bait. With a few lessons I was able to get a few on the tube. Look for Doug at the JP Bait & Tackle seminar as one of the panel speakers on April 8th.

    We practice Catch & Release only for Calico Bass. Meat hunts tend to cause your bass fishing skills to devolve rather than to evolve.

    Oh thats good.. So that means you kept the sand bass instead?

    When I catch legal calico bass and keep them.. I tend to increase bass fishing skills then to desolve.

    We did not catch any Sand Bass. You are welcome to listen to me discuss Calico Bass fishing on April 8th, 2008 at 6pm at JP's Bait & Tackle. The goal is too catch something better than just 12" legal bass. I just don't know any serious Calico Bass anglers capable of consistently roping the brutes who are interested in eating them. Its not a coincidence.

    Last time I ever ate a calico bass probably 1 year ago on a twlight trip.. It was 14" and I was satiesfied to eat it.

    My goal is to catch a calico over 12".. I want it to about 2-3 pounds, then I'll

    I'll see if I'm able to go JPs on April 8th, if so I will be there listening about your speech.

    then on a weekend ill head to the bay and slay the calicos, I will follow your speech.


    BTW.. Calico bass taste better than sand bass

    Lawman my friend and I will be there..

    This should give me skills when calico bass spawn begin.

    Are you going to tell us what kind of swimbait to buy?

    Pretty great fishing trip!

    Have a good show men, my wife and I were planning on attending but, as usual life things got in the way of fishing things.

    If you are a Marxist in philosophy, it affects the way you vote and how you live your life to the smallest detail. The context of how we hold the same information that others have affects what we do and why we do it in life. I'm an angler with marginal fishing skills. The quality of fish that come over the rails of the boat are not because of which a particular brand of swimbait, but rather a different context in which I hold the same knowledge of fishing most anglers have. I have no secrets nor any secret weapons. Knowing why some answers are not in your tackle box will transform your ability to target and catch big fish on a consistent basis. Its not for everybody. Its not a requirement. The panel of competent Calico anglers will answer questions on what should be in your tackle box.
