    Made another close in Calico Bass attack with the tube baits only again today. 70 to 80 feet of water just north of North Mission Bay Jetty on hard bottom. Not metering these fish but they are on the bait that is there. Some on the bottom some suspended. Today the bass I cleaned were full of sardines. I fished from 11:30 to 1:30 and had steady action on just Calico most of the time, not one Sand Bass?

    I need to get out. Thanks for the motivation. I love Calicos. I need them higher up towards the surface to get them on a fly rod but I am good to go on the plastics for now. I have two good set ups for them. Just need to get some more plastics in the right color.

    Use heavy lines before the tippett. People go up to 1100 grams. Just be careful you don't snag yourself on the cast.

    Tippett? Funny. I straight tie 15 pound floracarbon. I don’t bother doing anything fancy unless I am throwing flies in the fresh water. 1100 is pretty heavy. I can see myself getting wrapped up like lights on a Christmas Tree going with any line near a 1000. I will take a shot next weekend if I get a weather window. I got the plastics in the right color as a back up with my Calcutta set up ready to go. We will see what happens. Just stoked the Calicos are showing.

    Start with 700 or 800 and build from there. By tippett, I mean the structure of the line. My tippett is usually mono.
