Last time out fishing with my daughter a few weeks ago we got a 1/2 scoop of anchovies for bait. About 200 3-5" fish. Needless to say we used only a portion of those fish. Since I'm going fishing for a full week in BOLA in May, I decided to salt-brown sugar cure the remaining bait for use down there. Well, I tried them out today about 5 miles out of San Diego Bay. After a few mis-hooks she comes up to the surface fighting and head-shaking all the way up. 36"/22lbs.
