Did you guys see the cuda count today for the Santa Monica bay area, over 600 Barries today! It's game on!!!!
i was on it... blk/wht Tady C or small chrome jigs worked the best today. Easy limits if you're an iron firin' foo with the hot iron!!!:2gunsfiring_v1:

the Old Skool Yankee feather got bit INSTANT on a lot of baitball stops.

These fish are keyed on the meatballs of small 'chovies off MDR/Venice Reef.

fish were averaging 5-7lbs with an occasional 8lb'r.

Enterprise & Pursuit(?) were too!! Dayum!!

Geet out thea & geetchoo sum!!:2gunsfiring_v1::2gunsfiring_v1:

Remember that 1 kid last year who posted a pic with a dead cuda he supposedly caught with a swimbait inside long beach harbor??? Thought that was pretty funny.

Hey Dan...what do u think about using poppers on them cudas?
I would think that would work, when you see them up on the surface chasing baits try one. The reason surface jigs work so well is because they are fished rather slow, Tady, Salas, my Magic Metals (MM7) are designed to swim back slow up toward the surface, if you're going to use a poper styple jig, pop it and work it back slower than you would for a tuna. good luck and let me know how you do.

Probably going to head out Sunday and give 'em a whack. Fun to play with, but seriously? How do you guys eat these things? I can't stand the sour smell from the second they come out of the water. If you have to mask, or soak the smell from a fish, not on my plate please.

Thanks for the info Dan!

I'm hoping it's going to be a lot better than last year, Ensenada still has them full speed, fish are also in SD and now they are showing at the Channel Is. I'm hoping it's full speed in LB for the hoilday weekend. Then we need the sand bass to move in too.

I will have to give it one more try then... FRESH, hehe.

Just spoke with my brother a little bit ago, and apparently he finished his last job early and went to the harbor. He and our dock neighbor took our dinghy out to go play with the cuda. I guess they caught about 20 cuda and 1 short WSB in less than an hour!! Oooh, GAME ON!! LOL
