Sculpin are biting

It's sad to say but the be best bite right now in our local waters is for sculpin. It's almost Sept and we should have yellowtail and calico bass everywhere along our coast and we don't, I hoping this warm weather will improve our fishing very soon. If you are going sculpin fishing this week I'd suggest you bring along a few B-52 bucktails. you'll need a 6oz. if you're only fishing with one bait or two 1/2 oz. bucktails if you're doing to use a dropper loop rig. either way this jigs work awesome on the sculpin. Pin on a strip of squid and you're ready to go.

where to fish

with the tuna staying away for now, I'd suggest you fish the local kelp beds or over to one of the local islands. Catalina has had a great bite for months now on calicos, bonita and some barries, if the water ever warms up you can expect the yellow to turn on too.

Surf Fishing in Mexico

If I was to host a weekend surf fishing get away to Rosarito would anyone here sign up and go? Just asking because we are looking into adding a few more travel trips for this fall.

San Bass on a MM7

yesterday was the first time I had ever hooked a sand bass on a surface jig. we were fishing aboard the Fisherman III and there was a mix of large barries and sand bass around the boat. I landed four nice barries, but I also landed two huge sand bass on the MM7's too. next time your fishing for sandies and you see them up toward the surface try a MM7, it just might surprise you, it did me.

Fisherman III

today we had a fishing charter out of H & M landing in san Diego. the fishing was pretty good today, we landed a lot of gig sand bass and some nice size barries. I was able to land both barries and sand bass on the MM7's today. the weather was perfect for fishing too. you can see pictures from today's trip on our face book fan page.

Sea Star Trip

We had a great fishing trip yesterday, the fishing and the weather was awesome, we didn't hook and monster size fish, but we had plenty of action all day long on calico bass. The hot bait was the Bomber saltwater grade, jerk Minnow with a weighted hook. I caught most of my fish with this rig.

a good live bait

You would think that everyone would know what a good live bait look like, but I've learned over the years that's not the case. A good bait is one that has all its scales, is swimming very good and hard in the bait tank and doesn't have a bright red nose like Rodolph. Remember the bait you pick and pin on to your hook is never going to swim as good as it does there in the bait tank, so pick a good bait, take you time and make a good choice, if you're always picking a good bait, you're going to start catching more fish. Also don't fish you bait too long, you should be changing you bait every 2-3 minutes. Now go pick a good bait and catch some fish.....

live bait fishing

I don't care if we talking about tuna fishing far offshore or fishing the local kelp beds for calico bass, it is very important that if you're going to use live bait that you pick out a good bait to start with. Too often I see people grab a dead or half dead bait and then get upset because they never get a bite. some extra time at the bait tank if you need to, but make sure whatever bait you pick is the best one in the bait well......
