A great weekend of bassin!

Both bays have put out plenty of fish this last week, with Friday and Saturday being the best sessions.
Harbor Island short sessions in the mornings followed by superb MB minus tide bass fishing in the early evenings.

Harbor Island numbers for the week:
4 sessions = 42 spotted bay bass, 4 halibut, 11 mackeral, 18 lizardfish. All fish were caught on 3 patterns at HI, leopard frog, keylime, and a baby bass pattern I have been working on forever.

Mission Bay numbers for Friday and Saturday:
2 sessions = 28 spotted bay bass, all caught on the baby bass pattern except for 2 that were caught with the ghost shrimp pattern. If I include all the hook ups that were lost right up front, the number would have easily been in the 50's. I lost a ton of fish....

The average size of the bass were between 9"-12" with a couple up to 14". There was absolutely no wind during any of the sessions, the water wasnt the cleanest but these huge tides always bring in a lot of junk. The fish didnt mind :)

It was nice running into several of you guys while out fishing, I hope the fishing was as good for you as it was for me.

A quick report

I was able to fish a couple hours on Saturday at Harbor Island, and I had one of the better sessions of the year. I only wish I could have stayed out longer, left them biting... I ended up with 19 spotties, 3 mackeral, 3 lizardfish, and 2 halibut. I lost about 6 others. I never moved more than 25 feet to either side of me..... It was just that good. Water was pretty clean and there was very little current. A little windy but very managable.

So this morning I went out on Bill Hokstad's boat for an MB session, and needless to say all the fish were sleeping, all but a few... 4 anglers, 9 fish total for 5 hours of fishing. Conditions werent so bad since rain was in the forecast, we got light drizzle only once while we were out. The wind did pick up after 10am, that didnt help anything. MB has just been terrible for me this year with the exception of the month of January. Even though Mb is my favorite of the two bays, SD Bay is much more productive right now.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

October winner

The winner for the October photo contest is "carpkiller"(not sure of his real name). He caught this 19"-20" shortfin corvina while using the mackeral pattern swimgrub. I have only had a handful of pictures sent into me so please send in whatever pics you take of the fish you catch while using T&C Lures. Even if the fish are small, you never know.... Plus the more feedback I get from everyone the more frequent I can update the piechart.
