    Launched for the first time out of Cabrillo yesterday 4-7-18 @ 6:30 with my brother-in-law Sean on his 16’ Jon Boat. The morning was overcast, wind was not present, and the water was absolute glass. Bait was boiling outside the launch ramp which got us fired up. We started working inside the The Breakwall and first cast I landed this nice Calico on the Keitech Swimbait 2231EC29-47D8-4158-BFF0-E5B8698E158A.jpeg

    We added a few more shorts at the first stop. After bumping to the 2nd spot I started chucking a 7” MC Viejo Swimbait (Christmas Tree color) scored on our biggest Sandbass of the day which measured 18”

    The bite turned on after this, almost every cast got bit and Sean put on 2 more nice Sandbass on the boat using his Hook Up Bait

    Mixed in were a few short Barracuda, tons of short Kelp/Calico/Sandbass, and Mackerel. Winds started picking up so we headed back to the launch ramp and stopped at a few Pilings for a few more Calicos, Sandbass, and one short Halibut

    Back to the ramp around Noon. All in all we caught easily 30+ Fish between the two of us. Great day on the water.

    Nice job. So, whereabouts in the inner harbor is it legal to fish? I used to love catching nighttime spotties outside of pier 400, J, etc.

    Thanks Kman. We only fish the areas we know for sure are legal near the Breakwall, and also a few spots bordering rocks inside the Breakwall. Seeing as how I do not own a boat I won’t give up his spots or else I wouldn’t mind. We stay away from spots that to us are questionable.

    That is an unusually colored calico in your first pic. Maybe a hybrid? Beautiful fish!

    Looks like a fun day of fishing the bass,last time we fished inside the harbor we fished all over with no problem until we got around Terminal island and the prison,coast guard came by and just reminded us of the off limits area,they were pretty cool about it!
