Some news and a ho hum report...

As of right now the shadheads are still not available. I am trying to make these myself but it is something I have never done before, and my time is limited on when I can even try to make them. Once I get the hang of pouring(and painting) lead then I will let everyone know that they are ready. After experimenting for a while, if this is something I feel I cannot do with success, I will remove them from the blog and not offer them for sale. Your continued patience is appreciated.
On another note, we will be adding some more color patterns to our chart in the next week. I have also decided to make all color patterns available for each style of bait. So for those of you who wanted smoke or golden sardine swimgrubs, now you can get them. Same goes with those who wanted slim slugs in a swimgrub pattern.

Shore fishing for halibut has slowed down a bit, but seems to be picking back up for bass. Good sized sargo being caught with ghost shrimp in San Diego Bay. If you have a boat or kayak, it is still the best way to get good numbers on different species, espescially in San Diego Bay. In Mission Bay, early morning baracuda being caught in quivira basin, mostly 18"-20" models. Spottys are starting to chew again all over, better models being caught at night time. Calico bass are biting off the South Mission Bay jetty(channel side). Last but not least good sized sand crabs are mixed in with the enormous micro sand crab beds, you just gotta dig a little deeper for them. Of course where there are good sized sand crabs there are california corbina, plenty of them being spotted in the skinny water, and several being spotted in groups of 3 or more at a time. Plenty of barred surf perch to be caught if you can get past the huge amounts of salad in the water.

Go catch some fish!

They are everywhere right now. All kinds of my friends are catching them every single day, and I am talking 3-7 flatties each per session. Please, if you are catching them with swimgrubs take photos of them and send them to me :) If you want them entered in our halibut photo contest please make sure that they have a tape measurement shown in the photo and the lure visible.
Tons and tons of them are being caught from shore, huge ones. Even more are being caught from a boat or kayak. This is the best halibut bite I have seen in the last 5 years, and it sucks I havent been much of a part of it due to work. So get out there and get some! I will be doing my best to do so as well :)
