New moon is today. Fishing for C-bass 3 -5 on the backside of it is good (3-5 before the full = better ). Haven't been out in over a year (seabass are so two years ago ) but it's basically the same spots every year that the fish set up on like mentioned above. If it where me I'd set up on any of the usual spots, Mateo ,the Creek , or run north to Cristal cove or Newport Reef. Fish the macks . Setting up is huge so pay attention to current direction and tides. Fish the top side of the structure and cover all depths. Also not sure when your going but in a couple days tides look to be setting up for a good morning bite and a good evening bite. Good luck and I hope you pop a super tanker.
I'm hoping for a north of the border tuna marlin season !!!!!!
We were on the reef this morning at 3am and by 730am wind was like 30 knts went for the barn should lay down by FridayGood luck. I was hoping to make it to the back side today for the evening and Wednesday gray bite, but could not work out the time frame. Hope you find them. Thursday should be beautiful.
^Good luck. I was hoping to make it to the back side today for the evening and Wednesday gray bite, but could not work out the time frame with my friend to make the trip work.... Hope you find them. Thursday should be beautiful.
All these comedians.... Instead of being a super cool fishing dick, maybe help a new guy out. We were all new guys once....
1. Get Wisch and/or Haywards books and learn
2. Get on a trip with known Cbass killers - Dreamer, Railtime or Mardiosa for Catalina - Hayward, Trompass, Duane or Brightenburg for Coastal fishing. Pay attention to all the details and ask questions.
3. Get a good group of guys that put time in on the water and share info.
4. Make yourself available to go on SHORT notice. They are a fickle fish and you gotta be there when they bite. You can't just go seabass fishing on every saturday and hope to get them. You need to be there when they chew.
Everyone wants you to think catching cbass is all about skill. Sorry, but for most people it's not. It's like catfishing. You just need to know where and when the catfish are in most cases.
There are some guys that put in tons of time and just have the knack like those mentioned above. For the rest of us, it's really about good info and being able to go when they bite.
Unfortunately no one (myself included) is going to post up where and when here or on any public forum.
