San Clemente Island

Took a trip to San Clemente Island with Ron Matro, Scott Manson, and Mike Epsten last Saturday to do some bass fishing. Weather was outstanding, except the fog we encountered 10 miles out of Dana Point! The fog cleared 6 miles out from the entrance, thank god! Dark plus foggy equals lots of stress! The fishing at the island was Great! steady all day with alot of followers of small to medium grade Yellowtail. We went out to the 9 Fathom on the west end and chased nicer grade of Yellowtail and what looked like Tuna mixed in. The fish chased our jigs, but, did not want to bite. Probably 100 plus Calico Bass for the day! Finished up with a Hot Giullano meatball sandwiches washed down with a cold Ballst Point Grunion beer. Thanks again Ron, Scott, and Mike for a memorable trip!
