Heading up to Big Bear in a couple weeks, figured might as well check out the fishing.
Probably just shore fishing but may rent a boat if...
That video is bad ass!
Good to see you guys still getting out there.
Kids getting big dude!
What kind of set up are you looking for?
Sorry got busy, last week.
I have some pics but can't text them, do you have an email I can send them too?
Yes the rod is Brand new, still in the plastic. I believe it is a Raze but am not positive? I'll take a pic when I get home from work.
All Brand New in Box:
Cousins RSW 738 HPT 7' 3" 15-25lb - $100
Diawa Lexa 300 HS - $150
2 brand new Abu Garcia spinning reels both come with an...
Not an easy task, well done!
That's good stuff!
Nice fish and finish guys.
Thanks guys, appreciate the help!
I blew out all the lines, did the thermostat trick and we're flowing again.
Thanks Erik, your far too kind.
When water is hooked up to the flush connection it flows so if there's a clog somewhere it's not the hole or the...
The new key is in there and we could see fresh marks on the new plate below the impeller when we pulled in apart the second time so it looks like...
On the last trip my Yamaha 115 stopped pissing and the temp alarm went off. When we changed the impeller it was obviously damaged, spun out on the...
Good stuff John!
Now show us your thumb.
Steve, yes still running the blue Century cc.
Would have liked to see your new ride, we need to get together soon.
Dropper loop, waiting around...
Nice try Steve!

I have a Red Cannondale Prophet (L) in excellent condition for sale. This bike features all top components and is in perfect working order except...
Nice day on the water & a good local score.
I think your "bright red cabbie" is actually a sculpin.
My boat is 18.5' but otherwise meet all the requirements.
If you need another boat let me know.
Thanks, yes it is a cool watch.
It sells for $400.
Forged from solid 316L stainless with black nitride plating
580 Glass in Gray.
Definitely a challenging event / format. Consistency is key and not easy with the variety involved.
Congratulations on the solid finish.
I live in Sunland (just north of LA), work in the San Fernando Valley.
Do get down to Long Beach fairly often.
Brand new (in box) pair of Costa Hamlin sunglasses, black with 580 grey lenses (as pictured).
Brand new Reactor Trident Watch (in box), black with red as pictured.
Brand New Cousins Raze Series Rod - RSW 798 HPT 7' 9" rated for 15 - 25 lb. line.
I'll bet a Marlin Club incident?
Congratulations on a great finish, season and making good use of the new boat!
You never know what may happen at these events, catching fish is...
Good to see your killer machine is still getting it done.
Has anybody spend any time fishing calicos with your baits yet?

We ran across a full ripper out of Ensenada back in the late 90's, grey light, late sept. Heavy casualties in the 1.5 hrs of pandemonium. Trying...
See you in a couple days.
I was just curious if you were fishing north or south out of MDR for the bass?
Gonna be heading out one day this week.
Great way to spend a long weekend!
Way To Cool!
Great report and photos!
Cool to see Benny opened up a whole new fishing world to you guys, not many on the coast have the experience, knowledge...
Very cool Mitch, nice fish and story!
Like Gary said either Larry on the Calico Hunter or Dave on the Wave Walker will be able to dial you in to the best of what's going on in the area...
This was a very unique tournament not only because of the 2PM - 10PM hours but being a "Iron Man Event" not only did we have to survive the wind...
Good Stuff Dan, Thanks!
One of the best operations on the coast, these guys know how to find the fish and have fun doing it.
Ahhhh the "Hugron Formula" at work again.
The field's gonna look like the NHL playoffs by the end of the season.
Congratulations on the all or...
Chuck, have you reached out to Pete from Big Hammer?
Whats the deal with the launch ramp? Hours?
There's been at least one living back there for a decade or so.
Very cool Stefan, nice work.
Way to show the locals.
Well done boys, cool to see how stoked you guys were on the fishing.
Almost felt bad for minute about barely edging you guys out.
Congratulations on a epic bag & solid finish in an event filled with big fish and giant weights. This was a fun one.
Thanks everyone, just an unreal day. Nice when it happens during an event.
JT to bad you weren't there with the camera rolling.
There's been a...
Karl & I were excited about this tournament since it lets you fish the way you want with teams fishing from SMB, Cat, Clemente to right out front...
Karl & I were really looking forward to getting back to chasing calicos & SD fits the way we like to fish, usually treating us well. Without any...
Congratulations, nice fish.
Thanks but I've been there, the prop guy only comes in every 2 weeks and they had no recommendations.
I'm looking for someone who can do some prop work as close to the San Fernando Valley as possible?
Gotta spun prop that could also use some work &...
Revo Toro 50!
After starting the SWBA season off with our first DNW ever in LB we've left ourselves no room for error the rest of the year if we want to make it...
I prefer the camo braid if your going to be using short top shots.
If your putting mono on top it doesn't matter.
That's going to make the 4lber I get on sat even more valuable.
It's not that often you'll get that last #, when you do it's usually spot on.
Each have their time and place.
As mentioned your choice should have more to do with the type of forage your trying to imitate. If i'm going...
So often that one fish can make all the difference, it'll stick next time.
Gotta love that Game Changer!
Thanks everyone! Hard not to love the diversity available right out in front of either harbor there in SD.
Already looking forward to the next...
We found the same thing, outstanding morning bite before a huge lull.
Definitely one of those days you had to make the most of every rare opportunity.
That's the kind you want, nice work.
Last weekend was round 2 of the SBS Series (Inshore Division) out of Mission Bay. We hadn't made it down to pre-fish but heard the inside was...
You mean like this?[ATTACH]
That's what it's all about.
Nice pics, looks like some good fishing.
That's some good fishing, nice work!
It's about that time.
It was great to see you & Joe, it's been to long.
Nice work & a serious score on the elusive night time halibut. A rare occurrence.
Some good ideas being thrown around.
Gonna try to get back in the habit of posting reports.
Great pics/report of some amazing fishing/trips.
Keep up the good work.
Whats up man, how you been?
Had a blast w/the kids two weeks ago, planning on bringing the GF on sun.
Thanks for keeping it going!
Thanks for the heads up, if the weather holds up I'm gonna try to get the kids down there sat.
Great sense of humor as well.
Way to get the grom out there.
Funny how a few bugs can make such a big difference between just a night of work or a great time!
Looks like you beat me to it Duane.
Thanks again to you & Jaime for not only an outstanding day of fishing, an amazing time but for also...
Well said Andy!
This has happened before & it was worked out, lets let things shake out before the panic starts.
Congratulations Again Guys!
Way cool to see it all go down, quite a dramatic finish to the season.
Pretty wild how close it was.
Very cool Brandon, Congratulations!
Looking forward to the 1st issue.
Outstanding catches & pics, really looking forward to getting out with you guys!
I'd contact Kenny Baldwin: [email protected]
He's the real deal & has been doing it for a long time.
While fishing the SBS event on sat. we found a floaty with a couple keys attached at the entrance of SD bay.
There is some writing on it but it's...
Good Job Norm!!
There goes the neighborhood.
Nice work boys!
Chick is for real, no doubt!
That's putting the time it, nice when it pays off.
Having Eugene on the boat doesn't hurt, besides being super fishy he's a bitchen guy.
Nice score, you def. put your time in.
Very sorry to hear Matt!
That must have been tough to write, feel for you bro.
We should all be so lucky as to pass doing what we love.
Good Stuff Jamie!
Way to break in the new ride, congratulations.
That's a very cool prize put up by Seasons & Gerry, hope it holds up.
Good times for sure, nice work.
You guys are having an epic season, keep it rolling!
All of the above^
My buddies been riding the Persuit & getting yellows most days over the last week at Cat.
That's getting it done!
Way to work together guys.
I's go with the Inshore for versatility.
Made for the salt, no worries.
You dodged a bullet with that 2nd gaff shot, pretty wild.
Good Stuff Guys!
Keep it up.
Must be new here to ask for generic advice.
It's already getting good.
Things sure seem to be shaping up for another killer year.

Same good point but said much better!
Not working for me?
Nice Work Guys!
You could see the pride in Mike's eyes when he was showing that last prototype, looks like a winner.
What size/kind of hook do you guys rig it with? I haven't run across anything that looks like it will give you much of a chance at a hook-up?
Looks like a cool deal for a good cause!
Am I missing something or did you forget to post the facebook link?
For real deals keep an eye on the closeout page, Big Hammer usually has blowout sales on certain items for various reasons:...

Some really good stuff here, nice work guys.
With the cold water we've had lately the bass slow down, they still bite but react/move much slower & less often so you have to do the same with...
Good Stuff Guys!
Thanks for bringing a taste of it back to us.
It was painful missing this event for the first time.
Drop a sabiki on the fuzz you see on your meter in very deep water at any of the striper lakes. It will come up loaded w/tiny stripers.
This one hits home, spent a couple years of HS out there.
Cesar is a serious stick & hell of a sharp guy, might have to try to attend this one.
My goal this year is to not let so many good bites go by because we're totally focused on bass. Every tournament offseason I get back to chasing...
Bryan brought the beast by my house on his way home last night, WOW!!
Bitchen animal, photos & story. Very cool of Alek & his friend to put so...
Was going to head your way but already had enough for the evening, besides the angle sucked. Just missed you on the way out.
Can't beat that!
Nice work guys.
Thats been a hot item this year.
That's wild, You just never know.

Good stuff as usual Ron.
Sorry to hear about the lost rod, we've all done it.
That's the way to spend the time off.
We've used a 12oz torpedo to the mainline then Sabiki to the bottom of the torpedo, has a nice waving action when dragged along.

Exact boat my Dad has, very nice local ride.
Next taste of weather should push the shad up in the creek channels & get it going.
Good call Gerry!
Thanks, really looking forward to this season.
They always find a way to keep it fresh, gonna be a fun year.
Were the shad up in the coves?
Good Stuff Bro!
Way to stick with it & put one of those dinosaurs in the boat.
Thanks for the call, next time.
I'm keeping an eye on the albies/weather out of Morro.
Good info all around.
Thanks for the heads up.
Appreciate the info, sorry to hear about the strike.
We're looking towards Morro on fri. if the prediction holds.
Sure miss having my sister up...
We do a ton of night fishing & have only caught 2, both times shortly after dark. But it was Dark. Very Rare.
This time of year either are a sure bet.
Haven't been myself but heard the shad are up at Castaic & it's been pretty easy.
Any recent info, considering making the run up there this week?
Doesn't happen if you don't try, so cool!
Can't wait to hear all about it!
Let's talk about buggin'.
NOT good eating.
This has my interest.
Another great report & very cool about the tagged fish!
That map sure puts things in perspective, esp. when you consider the MLPA's.
Was there ever any doubt this is the direction things were going,...
You guys put together a season to be proud of, a stepping stone.

Great Report Bob, Thanks!
My in-laws live in Cedar City, love the area.
Wow, gotta be 15+years?
Forgot about Allcoast.
Bud, Are you saying what I think your saying?
I have the same boat in blue, absolutely love it!
Great riding local boat, I'd buy it all over again.
That ought to clear it up for you?
Thanks Duane, appreciate it!
Love your reports keep up the good work.
Nice work, how was the weather?
Was working on putting a trip for tom. together but I keep hearing whining about the seas?
Stoked for you guys, one more to go!
Good job jumping on that bird activity, it was sure something to see.
On years like this good offshore early in the month, more inshore later in the month.
Great news! Hadn't heard of any YFT of size up our way yet this year.
Time to get back out & look around.
See you sat. Matt, find me in the AM...
Sounds like a great trip, bummer about the misfortunes.

Keep up the good work Tommy & THANKS!!
Saw one just like it in the SMB on sun.
Getting it done again!
TOADS ALL AROUND!
Nice work boys!!
From my experience they either dry up or melt into liquid mush.
Keep your fingers crossed for drying up.
I was out there last weekend fishing with a buddy & it was full speed on schoolies all night with quite a few sm. catfish mixed in. Flylining cut...
Good timing, a co-worker is going in tom.
Gonna have to forward this!
Bummer, just as things are coming together.
Hang in there.

I had to bite my tongue a few times last sun. fishing around LB.
That's a great day on the rocks!
YF & BF can up very nice as well, much prefer canning to freezing except for a small amount that will be eaten within a few weeks.
That's Great, nice work.
BTW: I'm pretty sure your sand dab is actually a flounder.
If they don't find even a drop of water in the bilge, then they lower the motor. Again 1 drop & you fail. Pass that then they dig into your anchor...
& how cool is Kat!
Unigoop & Reebs have a Jr staff.
Pete at Big Hammer was talking about it being a good idea but I'm not sure if he's set it up?
Nice work Evan!
That's a fun/tough event, was bummed to miss it.

Gonna make that trip with you one of these days Joe.
Thanks Steve, each year the talent pool gets deeper. There used to be a dozen or so teams from which you could expect a winner, now you just never...
Nice work Gerry, good times!
Summer must be here, big bags & limits for every team.
Few day late Alex, I would have gladly had you aboard.
I got a sampling of your gay, ugh I mean grey bass sun. & their pretty big right now.
We'll see you.
Isn't it all Al's stretch?
Are you guys fishing Eric?
Good Luck Alex!
Like Andy said: Preparation & make every minute count!
Looking forward to...
Power handle, never even played w/the paddle handle on the winch.
I've also tried a couple various other handles Sav-On hooked me up with...
Very interested in an aftermarket handle Jim, I've tried several different types even the huge Diawa handles aren't lasting but a couple good trips.
BIG calico's are very good at spitting baits QUICKLY & large chunks of rubber make that even easier. Since with the big rubber we're winding these...
I've gone almost exclusively to the Winch when fishing the big rubber, esp. shallow.
HS for big hard baits.
Outstanding job guys, way to put the wood to the field!
Again, nice work boys!
Saw the smiles from all the way down the channel after you weighed in, way stoked for you guys.
NICE WORK Frank!
Rigging will be key?
Let's go boys, they're biting!
Revo Toro Wench!

It was cool to see all who came down to support despite the conditions! Tom Nitahara brought bagels for...
Just the Facts!
Sure puts things in perspective.
Can U Feel That!
Cold up in the SMB as well, dropped 5 deg. since last week.
Very sorry to hear, hang in there Joey!
Looking forward to it Gerry!
I know you've been putting your time in & will put on some fun events.
SOLID as always G!
Thanks for the reminder & bitchen pics.
Or the tow didn't go well?
It was a pleasure meeting you at the show Alex!
Keep me in the loop, I'd like to do what we can to help.
I've seen a few sand bass & a calico with 1 eye, that's the 1 problem with crank baits.
James Shamblin - certified, cheap & good besides being in Whittier.
He's the go to mechanic most of the SWBA guys use.
I'll PM you his #.
Those spinners are for REAL!
One of the best scores at the show IMO.
Outstanding reel, my go to for the Sledge Hammer (9" swimbait).
I fish 80 lb Spiderwire usually with a 40 leader, very powerful!
Thanks for all you do Mo!
Days are getting longer, get out there & fish guys.
Stop by the Big Hammer Booth at the show, 5 days of talking bass!...
Looking Good Boys!
We'll be sending 'em your way.
Spiderwire Stealth, Camo!
Was just thinking about Joe the other day, good to hear you guys are out there getting it done. Very Nice Sandy, looks to be a solid 8+.
Thanks for the link!
Adding a scent/slime coating IMO is crucial to most soft baits especially in the winter. Goop happens to be the best at performing that task.
Digging the new Fenwick Musky Rod!
Those are my kind of trout!
Is that a shark fin over the shoulder of that tool drowning?
I had the same #'s, $175 1st qtr + $200 half + a $75 hit on the $5 card.
Wasn't expecting much either, until the safety.
Even though they bumped us into 4th:)
Good going, it's usually the little things that make all the difference.
Very Impressive Fish!
Amazing part of the world.
We'll be back to defend our title.
This is a great event, looking forward to it.
Slice Off A Piece!
Epic Calico Bill, congratulations on the fish & all the swag!
Fish that G rod proudly.
I have also fished with Omar & would highly recommend him. Also fished with another outstanding captain who's boat was called the "Tight Loop",...
I'm in to if these are boxes your shipping?
Good looking out as always Tommy!
Happy Bday Gman!
Time well spent.
It seems every picture you take is simply art & every post makes me feel like I NEED to go to Japan.
Keep up the good work Tommy!
Good Stuff Gerry!
No doubt you'll put your heart & soul into this, like everything else you do.
Looking forward to having more events to look...
Nice rig & solid finish!
Shoot Pete @ Big Hammer an email describing what your up to, tell him I sent you.
You guys plan on fishing any other SWBA...
Digging the size of the mouth/head on that porker!
Guessing it's from a sm. body a water?
Healthy looking fish, nice work.
You must be good if you can put Brandon on fish:)
Your a sick man!
Cool meeting you guys & nice job but you still owe me 1/5th of a Becks!
Well done boys & girls!!
It was cool to see the smiling faces bringing home the bacon.
A must attend event for sure.
Maybe see you around again, hopefully under the same circumstances.
All Reels & then some have been sold, talk about a firestorm. WOW!
Bummer Brian, gotta do what we gotta do.
"but the Whaler will be there with 'lil Denek, Ceez and his son."

Time to raise a few bucks for another season of tournament entries!
Available now is a Shimano Calcutta 200 as well as 2 Calcutta 250's. They are...
That's where you'll need the luck.
Nice Work Bob!
That's good stuff, need to get some in before the 1st.

You hit the nail on the head, I've been almost glad to see them lose the last few games just so they may see the light. Getting harder & harder to...
Nice work Dan!
Saw you out there sat, hope your day was better than ours.
I had a very similar experience picking up a card for my 8yr old daughter sat.
Been lagging on the pics/submissions/big fish this year, There's some motivation!!
What is the # to beat right now?
Very Cool G!!!
"slayer heads for the sledgehammer"
Coors celebrates this day as well!
Have one for me bro!!
Become the master of your domain.
Wherever it is you fish, learn the intracacies of that body of water (this can be done from a tube). Take as...
Back from Yuma, I'll give you a call this afternoon Gerry.
Looking forward to hearing more about your new project.
As deep as the talent runs in these events looking back one (or even a few) tournaments doesn't do ANYONE any justice.
Them's be some fish, well done.
Stir Crazy hits the nail on the head!
I feel good things coming your way:)
Is that "ChainBoy" Mike?
They let him back in the country?
They do seem extra strong up there, you expect every fish to be much bigger than it is?
Good to see your still living the life Brad!
Been dreaming of another venture, for now it remains a dream.
Had the least amount of days on the water this year than any in recent memory & it showed.
Planning on rectifying that next year!
Liking that deep body as well, nice work Frank!
First I'd like to thank all the organizers that put so much of THEIR LIVES into making these tournaments a success, no simple task.
Each & every...
Now That's A Lure!
Nice try, did that once.
Def. a private boat fishery.
We've had many magical days up there, big BF as well.
X2 on the frozen squid, even frozen chovies work.
Torpedo sinkers 2-5 oz to tie inline, 3' leader between the sinker/hook. Most the time up there...
Nice work Erik, I think you've found your calling.
see you sat:)
Ron: James & Susan usually get the tourney results up within 24 hrs. here:...
Very cool to hear, thanks for sharing & releasing.
Me to, have a backyard full of 'em.
Very nice fish & perfect measurement photo, no explanation should be necc.
Besides it was caught on a frog!
Cool to see the Wallbanger coming back, always a fun/no pressure event.
Curious to see what the boundaries are going to be for the regular season...
He deserves it.
Just more money wasted on a complete joke of a report that is hard to believe was actually published. Drawing a conclusion (blaming recreational...
That really is some nice work Matt!
Keep It Up.
Gotta love surprises!
Thanks for taking us along.
Sounds like a salmon shark.
Well Done Matt/Mike!
It's been a tough year for most to stay consistent & that's what it takes
(or 1 lucky win:)
Toast to the Arrrrooooo boys as...
I have a ton of trebles (mostly new) that have been taken off of various crankbaits (replaced with 4x) if anyone is interested?
Pick up in Sunland...
Those regs include: NO hook & lining for lobster.
Truly an amazing looking place!
Big wild rainbow good / 1 lb line not so good:)
It's all about the experience anyway.
Gotta love smallies, seems...
Very cool to see Kevin still out there doing his thing, def. one of the best.
We first fished with him around 15 years ago on the Feather.
Nice work Frank as always!
FYI: for tuna on the slide we've always done better on the smaller baits, I like a 5" bait on a 1.5 or 2 oz head. Less...
Good to see you back G!
I have one or two of those (sans the customization) in my antique box, pretty cool looking but I've never put 'em in the...
The oldest I've eaten was 6 yrs, taste killer with no after effects.
AJ is the real problem.
If he gets away with it I see a rash of house fires coming.
What a dick!
2nd the Chris Collinsworth comment.
Def. a special place!
What your describing is phosphorescent algae, very different then red tide.
Phosphorescence is usually in clear water & IMO negatively effects...
It was pretty damn close to 11.
Nice work Dan, nothing beats confidence.
I wouldn't want to be either of those tools today.
The ignorance constantly displayed on piers never ceases to amaze me.
The shelf is right off the beach: wahoo, tuna & dorodo for us.
An elected official working for the people?
Anyone fish the big jointed Jitterbug they make for musky, good times!
Stripers luuuuvvv it.
Bring a sharpie & everything works.
Very Cool, keep rollin'!
100 days on the water in a year is something to be proud of, doing it in half that is impressive.
This works with CocaCola as well.
Good Stuff Louie!
Back in the late 90's when we had our boat at the Coral my brother got one (about 12 lbs) at the Coral gas dock. We were tied up...
Take care man.
May want to check this out?
A tournament of decisions for sure, options galore.
Well done boys you made some good ones!
I'm with you on the night events, my favorite...
That's a slug for sure, esp on the mini gear.
Congratulations again Bill!
A well deserved fish/honor, one you and many others will never forget.
Having only seen the pictures, still this truly...
You need a Toro!
WTG & a very good point!
Nice when you can find someone really worth supporting.
Are you guys for real?
Do you have any concept of what it takes to sneak up on an animal with that kind of experience & what a conquest it is to...
At least you learned your "bouncing big fish lesson" after losing the 1st one:)
Bummer about the knee, no fun, been there. HOPE IT GOES...
Great play by play, congrats on the outstanding catch, handling & release!
A 26" calico would typically be right in the 10 lb. range.
Wow, what tragic news!
Sure gonna miss his visits to the booth at the FHS.
It's nice to have friends.
Now that got the blood pumping!
Nice work Bobby!
You guys fish all night?
I'd call it 11 :)
Have a great day big guy!
Don't bother, those are for "dick in your hand" type fishing. Much more suited for green or spotted bass.
For calico's you'll have much better...
Could use some of that about now, but this helps.
Very good eating Steve.
You sir are a tool of the first order!
Good on you for removing the errant mono.
Killer looking stuff Poncho, those are for real!
How big are those grubs?
Video of the chick biting that treadmill is classic!
Aggro for prez!
FYI: Sledge Hammer is the 9"
A 9 is usually 25".
Killer Story & Fish!
Congratulations again John, super stoked for you guys.
The pleasures of tournament fishing:)
My cent & a half: Use a short 15 or 20 lb. flouro leader, braid has very little abrasion resistance (esp. 30).
With sm. swimbaits & big...
FYI: Tons of life off above Newport & we got smoked by one yest. fishing plastics among the chaos.
Very good to hear Mark, seems to be the time.
We did our annual camping trip over at Catalina a couple weeks ago & had some of the best halibut...
Tells a story, quickly.
Thanks for that!
When Duty Calls...
It's bitchen up there, walking the beach either side of the pier can be very good for halibut & surf perch.
Same for the SB pier area.
I think 26.5" is pretty safe.
Now That's a Trip!
Nice work dad.
Outstanding Fish, so cool on a sm. boat.
Killer spotty rod!!
Thanks for the check in!
Halibut are biting STRONG on the inside ledges, bass style!!
Epic Opportunity, that's bitchen!
Seen several shows filmed from the Nomad, all bitchen.
Seemed like very cool people from talking to them at the...
Excellent fish Capo, Congratulations!!
Did you get any measurements, cut some line?
I'd guess closer to 14.
Got to love that last ditch effort, score!
Not a bad way to salvage a day, thanks for the report.
We just got back from spending 4 days over there camping & some epic halibut fishing in...
Looks Like Pure Pleasure!
Thanks for bringing us along.
Another killer report, you guys rock.
BTW: Minke for sure & the timing is right.
At the end of a busy day, a man and his wife were sitting at home on the veranda in the quiet of twilight.
As the sun slowly sank below the...
Angler is a good friend of my buddy Capt. Ron.
These guys know how to fish.
Very Impressive Fish, Congratulations!
Nice looking jig as well.
Send a pic to the photo of the month contest on the Big Hammer site:...
3rd for Jon on the Double Header, the dude is fishy!
Here you go ladies...
It is about that time.
This one is very close except the ones we use are 5/8 & have a little more led above the hook shank....
Close but that looks more like a swim jig.
It's similar how the eye is in front (as opposed to on top) but this one is curled up like a WAR & has...

Keep it up!
If THEY have their way we'll all be fishing next to THOSE signs.
Thanks, the call is getting louder & louder!
Nice Fish Guys!
Must be the time.
Tested them all & 1 that is less than 6 months old is completely dead, won't hold charge.
IMO they are an OK battery until you start...

A friend turned me on to using the Costco Marine batteries due to their warranty. I put 3 in, a house & 2 for the Trolling Motor. Within 3 month's...
Well Done Boys!
Keep chipping away.
Crazy event for sure.
The mark is set early!
Gorgeous fish, well done.
Now That's a Worthy Fish!!
Classic photo for sure!!
Very cool, needed a good laugh:)
Not as big as Deckers but at least it's uglier.
Shakedowns are good!
You are old.
Outstanding pics, much better than the news would have you believe it looks over there. GOOD STUFF!
When our previous boat was used to...
Fish Looks Perfect.
Great Work Erik!
Very cool electronic format.
That's how you spell relief!
Every bit of support helps, chasing tournaments can get very costly.
Keep up the good work.
That's the stuff!
Very Cool G!
We can attest to the mahi's love for the spinners.
"why don't you post some pics of the skirt-less bitch?"
You First G.
With any skirted lure I cinch a sm. zip tie over the rubber band holding...
"What's he thinking???"
The same thing I am.
Good Stuff Mo!
Lots of good info here:
SO glad to hear you & yours are OK G.
The footage is absolutely stunning & without knowledge of the layout perspective is hard to get.
Good chatting with you & meeting the little killer.
Give those trap-rigged 3 inchers a try next time you go trout fishing.
Come by sun. & I'll...
I had a PM from him yest., hoping it was afterward I just checked the time - 6:22 PST.
Sure hope he's OK?
First time I've ever heard of wind killing fish. LMFAO
Couldn't have been the red tide throughout the rest of the bay pushing the bait in there.
I'd eat her, I mean it.
Nice work but you forgot to mention red tide.
Toss those & pick up some real swimbaits.
Tons of info to get you dialed here:
Really looking good Frank!
The rib idea is a very good one, functional while adding some dimension.
What kind of length & weight are we talking?...
Just has to make space for all the stuff they win.
Thanks for taking us along!
Outstanding report, trip & photos!!
Did you guys see any crested geckos?
Good to see you coming around.
I like you guys!
Next time try cranking a square billed crank through those trees in shallow areas.
Nice job on the kicker!
Starting your tournament career in the top half isn't bad.
You'll be back.
Your stuff is always nice but those are special.
Great Work Matt!
My brother said the same thing. Where he was it was very shallow for a looooong ways before you get to the outer reef, where you would want to be...
Very Sorry to Hear Bro!
Give me a call anytime you have a chance to get out.
Very nice fish!!
Looks like a Kokanee with a rainbow head?
Luv It When A Plan Comes Together!
Another notch in the rod handle.
Good to see Steve...
Where do you get the fur-lined sweaters?
"Any idea how he did it?"
Stomped it while wearing Vans.
Really dig the 8" models!
Do you sell these?
Keep racking up the tournament experience, It will come together.
Figured someone was getting it on.
Quality over quantity any day...
but caught 3 lost 5?
The first clown is a hack.
You can milk anything with nipples.
The SMILES say it all!
Looks like you have fishing company for life.
Solid finish boys, keep it rolling!
Glad to have that one in the books.
What was it coming up after?
Nice work Eric!
Great synopsis & look at the door you've opened for G.
That's putting the time in!
Your going to regret this.
Yes, Believe it!
Stoked for you guys!
That must have been early, the tent was packed by the time we got back.
Did you get any of the awards?
We've wondered about that as well, the various species makes sense.
I've had one out of La Paz that I would never eat again, same thing in FL....
What happened Rick?
If you don't mind me asking.
Your in a special place on earth!
Thanks for the report.
The tournament doesn't end until 2:30 on sat.
Thanks Tommy, Figured it was a long shot.
Love all the angles on the bill, talk about deflection!
Looks like a souped up version of the old Rebel, I think it was called a Wee Frog? They...
Hope you had a great vacation Tommy, missed you at the OBB Tourney.
Any chance your going to be swinging by the SWBA event sat?
Would love to hook...
1. Cesar pretty much nailed your night question but you always have to listen to what the fish tell you & be aware of recent weather trends. Some...
So special you guys should wear helmets!
Once again an outstanding event, the SD Anglers sure know how to throw a party. Huge thanks to all the sponsors & the amazing number of volunteers...
Thanks for carrying the baton for a while Brian.
Nice work, been getting that itch.
Killer job as always Roger!
Those look like fish killers!!
Now you've cracked the seal, hang on!
Looking forward to seeing you guys on the podium.
Great breakdown of your tournament, thanks for sharing here.
Looks like you guys have the bug, Keep at it!
You sure have a way with words.
Take Care Bro!
They took a laser to the top of my ear 2 yrs ago & recommended yearly visits.
Thanks for the...
Good info, thanks!
Big trout are your friend!!
Talk to the Radio Silencer!
Make Bass When The Moon Shines!
Curious to see the tail as well?
You'd be able to tell by the fight if it's been a holdover or planted at that size.
That's cool, thanks Poncho!
Them be some good 'ens!
Last night was one of the reasons to live in socal.
Them be some good 'ens!
Last night was one of the reasons to live in socal.
Nothing to do with camps, I just call 'em as I see 'em.
Evan, how many teams did you have to apologize to after the event?
How many did you miss.
You built a reputation throughout your 1st season & as...
Still one plague missing from the Salty Balls collection, planning on filling that spot on the 29th.
That's some good fishing!
Love the variety, gotta enjoy these warm spells.
Look it's tues?
Always hate to see that weekend come to an end.
Truly a one of a kind event, having you boys there takes it to another level.
Congratulations on that stellar day, real bummer about the drama.
Glad it all worked out OK.
Picking up day 1 big fish ought ease the sting a...
Listen to the masta beta!!
I do the exact same thing with the fish in our pond.
When they start coming up looking for food after laying low...
Good info Erik, Thanks!
Looks like a fun trip!
Never been there, have to put it on the list.
The Most Interesting Man In The World!
When referring to deep black on koi it is described as "sumi" as most of the descriptive terms used are Japanese. Ink makes sense as your...
"sumi" which is Japanese calligraphy ink"
I thought sumi = black?
Bitchen process, thanks for spelling it out for my illiterate ass.
BTW Frank, Karl caught a couple fish we used on your slug.
Good Stuff Justin!
Anyone happen to find a set of keys over there?
Big catfish are cool!
Is that cage in the 2nd pic for catching bait?
Great report Ron, Sorry I missed you.
Really like the pic of my daughter & Loki (The SWBA Great Dane). Would you mind emailing that photo?...
Killlller Dec. local fish!
"Human Scent" :)
Nice stuff Frank, looking good!
Very glad to hear about your wifes condition improving.
Did you ever finish that big curly tail grub?
We'll join the parade while Jack's working through his morning routine at the E.End.
Gonna spend new years in Avalon so we'll look for you guys...
Some talent up in here!!
A standard 6/0 lead/WAR head works as the serious fish go for the head but I do prefer a leadhead with 8/0's which are becoming increasingly...

Been there twice, each time spending a few days in the mangroves.

Very Interesting, Thanks!!
Good stuff G!
Brandon, I'm quite disappointed in your recent avitar selections.
Traumatized I fear as well.
On the water 3pm off at 2am, gave it the old college try.
Excellent fishing esp. considering 56.5 deg. water & it's mid december, a little wind &...
If you've eaten fish tacos in Ensenada you've probably had Blue Shark.
That's the way to introduce yourselves to the SWBA!
Nice job guys.
That was a fun event as always.
I'm glad we got through the day without...
Outstanding Fish, Nice Work Boys!
In 15 years he'll be taking you out on his boat.
SBK is gonna need a security guard.
Your a SICK MAN G!
Das a goooood un!!
Beginning to feel a bit religious.
Always good to know your limits.
Very Nice Looking Baits!
"dying to tune a meat whistle"
That's a good one!
Get the pooch an extra bone!
Guess is they won't be back to your house.
Sorry to hear Frank but glad it ended the way it did.
Stick with the Sledge, you will not be disappointed.
Sure it was a T, maybe a dogfish?
That is one Bad Ass Fish!
Great Fish Man!!
Nice work guys!
Wish I could have made it, heard it was a great event.
Certainly a good cause.
Great event for introducing the kids to tournament fishing without the pressure.
....or did it go exactly as planned?
Sounds like a nightmare!
Recently went to my first city council land management meeting regarding a park they are building at the end of our...
Why are spotties that size only in other peoples pictures?
Well Done Bro!
The nicer models have been tough to come by lately.
Not going to have any problem finding investors with this kind of portfolio.
Setting the bar a little high aren't you?
Now the pressure is really gonna be on next time she gets the itch.
Nice work Steve but your hair is starting to look like mine!
Making the trek down to watch the beat down in person.
Over the top guys!
WOW, hard not to think about what that scene must have been like.
Hope the kid can get over this.
Now I know what to do when confronted with the ridiculousness.
On the double take I see Jack sporting an MC hat?
Take that over 100 fish any day.
Well Done! Been wanting to get down to the stones but it's been one thing after another trying to get the sounder replaced. Hit PV as well sun.,...
Looks like a ciclid, good stuff G!
Love those ventures, kids give you a good excuse to carry a snoopy rod.
Dab a little water on the 5200 it will help it cure faster.
Garmin 76, have 2.
Been the go to for 10+ years.
Love hearing these kind of stories, good on you.
Major Event, That's Cool!
Can you still run a trolling motor?
Relax - Simply something to look into.
It's a fact that that's where most the stolen vehicles (esp. utility) end up. Speaking from experience...
Wrong on every level, hope they are watching the border.
Looks like a blast, can only imagine the shit talking going on with that crew?
BTW: Digging the SBK heads they match up well with quite a few of...
Brand new still in the sleeve, Shimano Crucial CRCS7'11"XH - $130.
Perfect Swimbait Rod.
Deliverable in the Sunland & SFV area but often...
Very nice fish, congratulations!!
Make sure to send her pictures.
That's the right size!
Can't imagine one holding up to a wahoo, I was fishing a buddies & the 2nd bass broke off the top wing.
Guy without the cocktail must be the deckhand.
Nice looking tank Betta!
Miss my reef as well, had a 60gal reef for many years that was perfect. When we bought a house we knocked out a wall &...
Like how you guys roll!
Love that shit, now that is fun!
Looks perfect for skipping along the top of the eelgrass.
Great rundown of your event, good to see another young tournament addict.
Hey Hoops, What about the Helicopter Lure?
Ordered tues. afternoon on the doorstep wed. afternoon, heard that about you.
Great report Chuck!
Felt like you guys brought me along, missing baja pretty bad as well.
Good to see Joe's still at it, he's got that place wired.
Early spring & late fall is def. sweetwater time, thanks for the reminder.
I was hoping for one of those classics from the "other" sister.
Longer, softer rods with loose drag when using smaller offerings/hooks.
Patience is your friend, they wear out quick enough.
Very Nice Fish Chris!
Let us know the when & where.
Keep fighting the good fight!
"There are only so many hours in the day, and yen in my bank account, but, Sir Josh, you are on the list for a custom G-style rod."
Giving me flashbacks!
Keep that heart pumping!!
Hate to think of what he's going to do upon receiving that gem.
"jerking it with my own tears"
LMAO, another classic Rapism.
Very Nice Fish!
Well Done & on YOUR day, congrats!!
I have a few friends like yours.
Love the G ventures.
Suspecting some fun was had?
That last pic says it all.
It is that time!
What kind of FF are you upgrading to/why?
Looks like I may be in the market, which exact unit is that your selling?
Good Work Your Doing Ben!
Great to see you back at it Frank!
Digging the grub BIGTIME!!
Very glad to hear, that's bitchen!
Been meaning to give him a call.
Outfitting isn't easy!
Wow you guys are taking this finale thing seriously, scaring me.
Great fishing on the cliffs all the way back into Tin Cup, topwaters & blades.
Sat. was off the hook!
You missed it this weekend bro!
Trifecta & major limits of fun.
Keep the rubber side down!
Everyone (except us, oops) was fishing spotties this month.
Brian go ahead & forward the prize to the spottie contest.
Still keeping my eye on...
Funny Chit Boys!!
That's fun fishing, hoping for some of that this weekend as well.
Call me when you have no class!
Very Cool, great story!

The QM's always blurry when I get back in too?
What's up Jesse?
One of the few around here, I see your local as well.
Where do you fish?
My buddy fished stripers at Castaic on tues. for zilch, which has been money for a month.
Let the moon fade a bit before giving it another run.
For the trip down I'd say hell yes!
The trip back, not so much.
Hopefully not as bad as it looks? Blood was actually coming from under it's tongue & stopped once the 8/0 was removed. She took off strong,...
It turns into a Fuckin' Fist Fight
"I'm about to make 1000 casts...just because."
Been there a thousand times.
Cool to see all these TOAD Spotties, getting me all hot & bothered for this weekend!
The Real Deal!
That doesn't make having not gotten out this week any easier.

Good Stuff Little Man!
Experience of a lifetime, very stoked for you!
Looks like a cichlid, BadAss!
Good way to spend a bass tourney:)

Doesn't look like it.
So ridiculous the pic almost looks fake.

Was stoked to see you guys up there stuffing your wallet again, nice job!
Keep it rolling...
Always something when your dealing with Elvis.
Good job on the hook-up.

That rod was the talk of the Captains meeting, outstanding inspiration.
Very cool of everyone involved!
This should be a good month.
How do you bring yourself to drift when they are biting like that?
Nice work, you should fish the tourney next sat.
The custom WAR goodies will give you wood!!
That is a bucketmouth!
