    Calico bass at Marina Del Rey, CA breakwall

    Thanks much to Kman, tuner, and crabdancer for their tips on calico fishing. I used them all to have a much more productive day yesterday 1/12. I was probably ripping the hook or bait out jerking like a TV bass fisherman. The fog was thick in San Pedro at 7am, so I waited until 8:30 to leave...
