Some news...


First of all, we will no longer be accepting checks for payment. Not because of anything really bad, but because twice now customers payments have gotten lost in the mail. They wonder why they havent received their baits and I am clueless since the payments were not received on our end. I am sure this might be just a fluke thing, but I have only had a handful of "mail" orders and all of a sudden this happens twice in the last two weeks.... So from now on, we will only except payments through paypal or cash in person only. For those of you who do not have a paypal account, I encourage you to get one. Paypal is safe and easy to use.


If you fish from the shore chances are you are catching very few fish right now unless you count the mackeral that have been showing up near Shelter Island, Harbor Island, and near the Embarcadero pier. I did see a few guys fishing with live ghost shrimp catching tons of sargo up to 17". I also saw tons of baitfish being crashed into by bass and corvina, and they would not accept any artificials. I guess all these fish want the real thing right now.
Those that are fortunate enough to get out on the water by boat or kayak are finding bass in good numbers in Mission Bay and San Diego Bay.
Those of you who like surf fishing are most likely enjoying a decent bite on surf perch. Sand crabs are making their way higher up the surf line. Tons of micro sand crabs right now and the bigger ones are showing up at night during higher tides.

Photo Contests

Just reminding everyone that we are having two seperate photo contests from now until August, one for halibut only, and the other for all other fish. The grunion started showing up a couple weeks ago, not in huge numbers but they showed up. With the upcoming supermoon I am thinking there will be plenty grunion around and the halibut should be roaming in the shallow water in the surf, and of course there will be those few grunion that get lost in the bays making the bite good there too. We will be crossing our fingers :)
When you take pictures, please make sure the bait is visible. For the halibut contest, a tape measurement is required. For the regular contest, no measurement is required.
