    Saltwater Bass Series Mission Bay Calico's

    Had a great time and pulled off a second place finish with 22.14 pounds all Calico Bass. Started down at the IB Pipe. Fish were there but no conditions and no biters. Same story at the IB Sand Bass flats on the spawners. We headed back towards the Point Loma kelp as per the plan. On the way we...

    Saltwater Bass Reels...Care and maintenance issues

    I'm frustrated to death.... I fish several of the reels that most of you use, including Curado 200/300 (all models), Citica 200, Calcutta D 200/300, Lexa 100/300, and the Revo inshore (only the older 200). I'll be trying the Okuma Komodo soon which I'm looking forward to. These are all...

    More SBS Mission Bay from the Ponder's - Team Hard Snore

    Well, we started on a spot of fish we'd found and got a 3.5 as soon as we pulled up. Sweet! The fish were biting... Then some nice misses and another nice one lost. After that the crickets were pretty much chirping for the rest of the day. We ran around a bit and scrounged up two decent ones...

    2014 SBS / SWBA schedule conflicts

    Kind of bummed to see that the SWBA scheduled several tournaments on the same dates as the SBS tournaments. I'd planned on fishing the full series next season in both SBS and the SWBA. Now it seems that fishing both series won't really be a practical option unless something changes... Ty

    The Bolts take a beating...

    Great spottie fishing this morning in Mission Bay. The Reebs Bolt thrower accounted for 26 nice spotties, 2 Corvina and 1 Halibut in about 3 hours, with plenty more lost. The best 5 went just short of 8 pounds with the average around 1 1/4 pounds all day. They absolutely annihilated the Bolt...

    Field testing

    My son, T.J. Ponder had a chance to get a few on some new prototype swimbait colors he's been working on. The venue was North County San Diego on Sunday May 6th. A couple of buddies joined us. The first fish (pictured) he caught was a 1 pounder on the Califlauge color. The hot color turned out...

    Explored a new open area in North County for some nice Calico fishing over Sunday and Monday. The conditions were quite nice and we found some good fish on both days for very steady fishing. Average was around 2 pounds, mostly Calicos with some Sandies mixed in. Several 4 pounders but Benny had...

    So Long, Farewell...

    Since I was a kid Swamis has been my home away from home. When it’s on, the reef can produce world class point surf at its finest. Just a few years ago my friends Calvin Tom and Michelle Bowman introduced me to boardfishing and re-ignited my passion for fishing. Since that time, I’ve spent...

    The Latest on the MLPA 7:00 pm. Not good news, but still hope.

    In a phone interview after the hearing, Bob Fletcher told me, "We were not pleased with his tentative ruling, but were encouraged after the hearing over the lively disccussion the judge had with our attorneys over our arguments in the case. We're now waiting for the final ruling."Judge...

    Spectra digging in on baitcasters

    Hi, I fish spectra with a short topshot of Flourocarbon on all of my Calico baitcasters. Most are Curado's, Revo Inshore's, and Citicas. I've continually had frustrations and problems with the line digging into itself on the spool after I get hung up or pull on a fish. I started fishing 30...

    Recommendations for fish mount replica

    Hi, Any recommendations for fish mounting / replicas would be appreciated. I've already contacted Global Fish Mounts in Florida. They were very helpful and seem to have their act together. My fish is a Calico Bass which weighed in just under 11 pounds. It was 24" long but very girthy. The...

    11 Pound Calico

    This day of boardfishing started out slow and I was working my way in to the beach. I dropped a Megabait on an outside corner of the inside of the Carlsbad kelp. Lately all it's been good for is a few small Sand Bass. All the fish have been in the outside kelp. I got a solid hit on the bottom...
