As a tune up for my cedros trip in 10 days I took my two sons, a friend, and grandson to La Jolla for calicos. We settled in near the cove with about 20 other boats. We caught a few here and there on plastics drifting outside the kelp line We started fishing bait and was getting short bit as they weren’t committing well. Around 11:30 it turned in to the best bass bite I’ve seen in years outside of Mexico. The five of us caught well over 80 fish on bait, plastic, and iron. Yes, this does sound like BS and I hesitate even mentioning it. All the while boats were leaving the area. My grandson put on his shark hat for the photo of one of the nicer fish caught.
