    Looks like the Freelance is headed towards bass this Friday. Anyone have any suggestions or tips for a relatively new salt bass angler? I'm planning on throwing paddle tail swimbaits and coltsnipers with light(er) flouro and mono leaders. Might even bring a jerkbait stick as well.

    Thanks!

    Send down 2oz. lead heads with 5inch swimbaits. Or 3-4oz. torpedo sinker with two hooks with squid strips. Ask the deck hands what they suggest and roll with it... Don't use light leaders. 30lb. will get bit and also get you out (unstuck).

    if you plan on using, a Whole Squid, you should Bring Your own
    because some Boats have a Limited supply and Get Butt Hurt
    when you grab a Whole one,

    2 oz or 3 oz lead head with a grub or scampi.
    I have most successful days using glow.

    Thanks for the intel gents.

    Anyone know of a local LA shop (west side or SFV) that has 2oz jigs? I know Turners in Reseda doesnt and I'm fairly positive Action doesn't either...

    Go a bit early and swing through Anglers Center. They're about a mile from the landing but off the peninsula and easier to get to.

    Bob sands in Van Nuys or Fish 'n Fools in Granada Hills will both have what you need.

    The question is catalina or local bass. Leadheads are great local, probably flyline anchovies or sardines at the island. Maybe a 1/4 oz egg sinker to keep the bait away from the birds.

    Thanks everyone. I stopped at Action on the way home and they had a few 1.5oz jigheads and some 2oz underspins. I should be able to make those work one way or the other.

    Oh, good call. I could have sworn the lady at the landing said the Freelance, but that might have been my imagination. Not like it really matters anyway. So long as it floats I'm all good.....

    I went and checked for you because I haven't seen the freelance in a month. They got brand new motors. Should be back first week after rockfish opener. The 3/4 days have been local fishing, sculpin, perch & bass. Have fun Friday

    That is correct. Freelance isn't back online on our books until march 10th.
