Been fishing out of San Quintin for quite some time and have caught plenty of halibut and sand bass back in the bay but never a spotted bay bass. Of course there must be some in there but I always figured because the water is usually so cold much of the year, there couldn't much of a fishery.........perhaps I'm wrong. I heard a rumor that many years ago, professional bay bass guide Mike Gardner did an exploratory trip here and caught some bay bass but over-all the fishing for the spotties was poor. Interestingly though, the hand full that were caught ended up being quite large. Any insight about this topic would be appreciated.
