#3232, "Word from down south."


          

Fished San Diego Bay Saturday and Monday morning. Launched both times at 7am, in at 12 on Sat. and 1 on Sunday. Fished Shelter Island area both days. I tubed and my friend Steve used his Yak. It was fun both days but Monday was really fun.

Sat, I we both finished with around 15 legals, and 6+ shorts (mostly Spotties). Steve probably had closer to 20 legals by the end, plus 5 or so short 'buts. Most of the fish were in the first 2 hours. After the water stopped moving it died.

Sun, was better. I finished with 32 bass, 25 or so were legal (mostly spotties). Steve had 29, with a higher percentage of legals. What's so crazy about it though was that they were short biting, and generally being not so agressive. Plus, there was a 1.5 hour lull while the tide changed direction. Can't even imagine what would have happened if they'd been a bit more hungry. I had 13 of my legals in the last hour.

What were they biting you ask? Green mostly, weren't even picky about which kind. I stuck to Robo Zippers, freakbaits, and these 9" grubs that Steve let's me pour at his house. These things are giant, the body is 5" X 1/2" by itself. He stuck to smaller grubs he had poured. The two exceptions for me were my last Powerpulse worm in pumpkin/chart. and these XPS 5" Squids in purple spot. I had thought about trying 'em for a while, then a fellow tuber from Floattuber.com used them and did very well at a tourney. So I broke down and bought a pack. $5 for 4, that's why I waited almost 2 months before buying some (and I'm a rubber 'ho). They worked great C-rigged on a 4/O wide-gap (13 legals on 2 baits). My only complaint was that the eyes pop out way too easy. Usually, I lost an eye just getting them on the hook.


For those of you who have never tried S.D. Bay, you must some day. If you like fishing bass in a harbor, there is no better place. For what ever reason the bass there just aren't bugged by weather conditions. So even in mid-Febuary with 55 degree water and waterspouts all around, the fish will still bite. I konw this one from personal experience. Had limit that day. The only thing to watch for is the tide. They won't bite during slack, and when the tide is moving, it's at Mach 10. That does kinda suck for tubing, but little planning is all that's needed there. As for boat traffic, well there's no speed limit, so don't wander off into the middle of the main channel.
