South San Diego Bay 10/28/17

I'm still dialing my Hobie Compass in, but I'm loving it so far, I'm having a lot of fun. I love the hull on this kayak and while the seat is quieter and wider than the Vantage CT, the lumbar support is seriously lacking. Since I don't have any heavy fishing poles or tackle I've stuck to the south end of the bay primarily picking off grumpy spotties.

Today was a personal best as I stopped counting after 20, most were babies but I would guess 5 or 6 legals. I had one baby halibut flash from under my yak but s/he made a u turn once it got close to the lure. I had a great time, took mostly video but I have a couple of screen shots. I was using Warbaits Underspin and Warblade jigs to great success otherwise.

I also met a local Youtube legend Dino better known as "Jig Jig Pow" who looks like he may have caught the yak fishing bug as well. I'm looking forward to venturing out into the main San Diego Bay channel to hook up on some sandies, calicos and halibuts here pretty soon. I will keep updating as I go as it seems the fishing reports have been lacking recently.

Good report and cool pictures. I havenít fished the back bay much but it looks like a fun area.

I like how quiet it is. Not much motor boat activity just people coming in and out of Pepper Park and J Street. Itís basically tremendous amounts of eel grass and sandy bottoms so there are loads of spotted bay bass and if youíre into something a little different that Pacific Bonefish is prevalent back there. I see them jumping around all over the place. They are supposed to be a lot of fun on light tackle. Kayaking is perfect there because of all the shoals and very shallow areas especially during a low tide, so most boats wonít venture down there.

Thanks for the report. How do you like the Warbait underspin? Does it catch many weeds on the arm that has the blade?

I like it. I donít run it through the eel grass like I would the traditional weedless warbait, I try to keep it just above the eel grass. With this application I like it a lot. Iíve been fishing the Warblade more and more, with good results. Give them a shot, they work for me and I donít consider myself a very good fisherman, just cast and retrieve.
