    Matt Magnone of Baja Vinnies Bait & Tackle nailed this whopping 12.2 pound Calico Bass at the Coronado Islands last week. He was throwing a green & black Kicker 25 -Light surface iron with the textured finish. His intentions were not to kill the fish, but as the calico surfaced a deckhand reached over his shoulder and gaffed it. He was very disappointed and wanted to release the calico. He is certainly happy about the catch though and is doing a 3-D mount of his fish which will sit on top of a rock pedestal.

    Congrats... Do you know how long it took for that bass to get that big? Should have netted the fish instead of gaffing, it would of weighed more...
