    We took 4 kids on Monday and was wide open bonito action by Red Bluff in 90 feet of water. Anchored up an it was a fish almost on every bait. Great session for teaching the kids. We headed to Eagle Reef after that and had a great pick on calicos. I love Cat in October and November!

    How to Fish the Larger Lucky Craft Flashminnows?

    I've had similar problems with the Daiwa Salt Minnow. I found taking the oval split ring off and tying a loop knot directly to the main eye gave it a tighter/better swimming action.

    Stradic 4000 rod recommendations

    I have a couple of Stradic FJ 5000's and have them paired with Teramar 7'6 MH and like the balance. The H is too stiff in my opinion especially for bass. I recommend taking your reel and try it on some rods at your local shop. Will give you a feel of the balance which is important.

    Fished Los Alimitos Bay for some light tackle sandies

    Fished the LAB for a few sandies on light tackle. All were shorts but still a great way to kill a few hours last week. Happy 2014!

    New Years Day Breakwater Trip

    Nice work on those calico's! I think I saw you two heading back in around noon. I was in my 21' Whaler near the start of the wall. I was able to scratch out a few short sandies but that was it.

    LAB Fishing

    Nice work in the LAB. I've fished is a few times the last couple of months with similar success. Lot's of mid sized fish but always fun to catch!
