    Hello gang I got a last minute invite to do some calico bass fishing this Saturday and I couldn't pass this one up. I had been wanting to field test my new fat shad swimbait. We got a early head start and with flat seas we made Santa Cruz Island fairly quickly scooting at 40 plus on the speedo. I poured up a few dozen baits in various colors and we pinned on 1 and 2 ounce lead head and we let the baits fly. It didn't take long for the fish to find my new baits good enough to eat. We had a very steady bite throughout the whole day. The fish ranged in size from 2 to 7.5 pounds. The smiles on mine and my buddies faces is a tell all on how well the baits produced, Well gang I am also awaiting additional feedback from a few hundred of my baits that were being fished last week on a 6 day skiff trip on the Q-105 out of San Diego. Here are a few picture of our trip this Saturday. Till next time gang. Take care and God bless.
