Morning Gang

Hope life is treating everyone well. It's that time of year again with Cod Season just about to open and Fred Hall doing the annual show in Long Beach. The New thing for 2010 is the long awaited and ever so popular El Nino Weather Pattern. The water has been pretty warm off so cal and the wet winter conditions are really lining up for a real interesting 2010 fishing season. A nice snap of Yellowtail down off Colonet and Seabass catching up off Santa Cruz (and I don't mean the island) is the Buzz at the Landings.

If you can roll by the show in LB, make sure to say hi to Mike Naoe in the Vintage Antique Tackle Booth in the Arena Show Area, and go High 5 the American Angler Crew in the Main Hall.

Hope to See You There

To: Bob Hara email i sent to Mike this eve, that had some pics from a local trip off some of our favorite stones. The sand bass fishing this "winter" has been phenomenal. Here are pics of one that topped 5 and another over 7.

Now who said bass don't bite in the winter. The fish that Jay is displaying, is a Tree Fish i guess. I think that's what he called it. It was whopper.

You guys are sure making real good use of the "Family Ride".!! Thanks for the report Mike.

Sea Adventure II skipper Terry Clayton was fishing for blackgill cod on a commercial trip last week when a spot of 15 pound albacore breezed down the side of his boat. Just as the school approached, one of the fish jumped clear out of the water. "I could see it's wings perfectly," said Clayton. This could be a sign of an accelerated season due to the warm El Nino waters. "This has to be a good sign for 2010," he said.
