California flying fish baits are for sale in local Southern California fishing shops. G-fly, a licensed California flying fish bait source on the West Coast is providing the flying fish and stocking stores as fast as they can.
There is a difference between the East coast flying fish and Southern California sourced flying fish. The East Coast flying fish are on average 8-10-inches long while the West Coast flying fish are 14 to 16-inches on average. The Pacific bluefin tuna love the bigger California flying fish, many times not hesitating to take these baits on the first pass. Match the hatch!
G-fly flying fish come in individual wrapped or a 3 pack.
These flying fish are rigged with the wings propped open using a kite or drifting with floats to keep the baits upright on the surface casting a flying fish silhouette.
These premium California flying fish are being provided by the commercial squid and bait boat Kinley Marie while fishing around Catalina and San Clemente Island. The captain and crew catch these baits, inspect and pack them one by one making them the best baits available on the West Coast. These guys stay up at night so you don’t have to.
