It looks like I’m going to be spending time this fall and winter working in sunny San Diego. It’s a rough job right on the San Diego Bay. Try not to feel bad for me. I had to travel out there for a quick 2-day trip and of course I brought my fishing rod along for the ride.
I spent a couple evenings fishing Shelter Island throwing grubs off the rocks. I caught quite a few spotted bay bass and may I say… these fish pack a punch! There not very big, but they make freshwater fish look like pansies. A half-pound spotted bay bass will actually pull some serious drag. Gotta love the ocean. Hopefully if I spend some more time here I can get into a few more species, or better yet, find someone with a boat willing to take me out on the big pond in search of some real ocean fish.
