    No shots of my boy Greg's rig Gadzuchs? Thing is out of control this year with the dredgers. Sure are NOT a lot of Marlin ganged up this year. Hopefully next couple weeks....... There was that one snap up at the channel islands 5 weeks ago or so. That was the best and only real deal so far.

    Yeah we never fished close enough to Greg to take a pic. Marlin fishing is tough this year for sure.

    Great report .....as usual. :) I have caught most of my PB calicos in that area years ago. Including a 12lber. I think the strong currents there have something to do with it.
    I don't know if these giants are as much of an anomaly as we think they are. I kinda think there are more of them around than we ever see. One thing that I have noticed is that we get lulled by the smaller models and are not always prepared for the big bite when it happens. I know I have had some horrendous bites that came out of nowhere while calico fishing......usually following endless little guys. It keeps things interesting. I will have to get some of those Sebiles you have been using. What size and finish are you partial to?

    Thanks and keep it up.
    Jeff

    This is an older boat. Early 2000’s I think? I might be off by a foot either way on the length too.

    Erik;
    You have mentioned using the Sebile Stick Shad a few times in your posts. I was wondering what model, size and finish you have had success with? As you know the choices they offer is almost overwhelming......
    Thanks again for the high quality reports.
    Jeff

    I use the floating 155 in this color. I also replace the hooks with VMC Inline Singles.

    Thanks for the response Erik. I think I will be trying some of these out in the very near future.

    Ive caught 2 over 10, one of them was from that same area that you lost the big fish. it ate a mackerel on 60... I thought it was a small black. the other was on a spanish at Marine land. that one I was convinced was a black...

    neither were blacks...

    the one from clemente was huge but the one from Marine Land was stupid big

    how big do you estimate the one in the pic? gorgeous color on that fish

    I’d put it somewhere around the 9 to 10 pound mark.

    Yep the bigger models really hit like a ton of bricks. You get about a milisecond to turn their heads and if you don't it is generally over as fast as it started.
