    Good Friends are hard to find. Fishing has brought many of us together over the years with a common interest for adventure and the bite of island bass.

    Justin Reynolds and I joined Capt Jimmy Decker and Tracey on the 24ft Everglades CC for a trip to San Clemente Island in search of the target species, Calico Bass. We were joined by Capt Benny Florentino and crew with his 22ft Skeeter Bay and we made our way to the East end of Catalina. We were met with dense fog during the crossing, but on the East end the gates opened and the Sun greeted us. We continued on our way to SCI in flat seas running 40kts with punk rock as our anthem.

    SCI offered up some amazing fishing. We found fish tight to structure like boiler rocks, in the wave wash and on the beach. Our best bites came in 30ft of water with pockets of deep current pushing the kelp stringers down. The 1oz Slayer Head (Firecracker color) was the most effective with a 5 sec drop, giving the bait a chance to reach the laid down stringers. A fast retrieve back to the boat insured a bite with a pack of followers aggressively trying to steal the bait from the hooked fish. The color that bit the best was a basic Halloween 5" Swimbait, but the PEARL Swimbait had the most bites. We also hooked plenty of fish on the MC Viejos Series in a bait fish color and the Island Plastics Already Dead Swimbait with a 10/0 Beast hook.
