    Don't forget all the "good" the MPAs are doing. Theorhetically there should be infinite 10"-12" (5 years of new MPA) unmolested calicos since the implementation, that are now starting to breed themselves.

    Actually I have seen more big bass killed this year than ever. You bass huggers wanted to lower the limit and up the size, well guess what you can't have it both ways. Next year when all these 13" bass are 14" then the big ones will get a pass.

    Right on! Nice catch. I love eating Calicos and Sandies. I have a bunch of tuna in the freezer and had a cornmeal dusted sand dab fish fry last night. All were eatin by the family. I need more bass in the freezer/ Fridg!

    I'm guessing all of southern California chasing tuna doesn't hurt the Calico fishing either

    Thats what the doctor said too. Once a day is healthy.

    Considering how hard Dana gets hit I was stoked to get that big momma there. Personally Id rather limit on 2# fish than keep 1 10. Not that the above was 10. But whatever. If its legal I wont lecture anyone. Bass are fun to catch and good to eat.

    I think people get mad when guys keep calicos because it takes years for a calico to get to legal size. the YT grow quick.

    Let me correct you. Yellowtail do not grow to reproductive maturity very quick at all, compared to their neighbor the Dorado. Information obtained from DFG and Hubbs states:

    The average size of YT at selected ages are: age one, 20 inches and 3.8 pounds; age two, 25 inches and 7.4 pounds; age
    three, 28 inches and 9.9 pounds; age four, 31 inches and 13.2 pounds; age ve, 33 inches and 15.9 pounds; age 10, 44 inches and 35 pounds. Many yellowtail are sexually mature in 2 years; all will spawn when 3 years old. So a YT between an average 25 and 28" has just become mature enough to reproduce. Hence why there is a fork length limit of 5 fish under 24". Because all those smaller ones we call "firecrackers" have not had enough time to make babies yet. A 3 year old female will weigh about 10 pounds and spawn approximately 450,000 eggs; however, a 25 pound female will produce more than 1 million eggs.

    So easy on the firecrackers! Let those mossbacks grow!
