Went to the wedge to do some jetty fishing with a friend. we caught fish continuously almost every cast. all of them were just small calico, sculpin, and one baby garibaldi. every thing was released except one sculpin that i kept. biggest sculpin measured 11".

I love to eat Calico bass. I really miss fishing for yellowtails too in SoCal...

Cool report! What bait were you using? Also, what technique. Thanks, because next time Im in So. Cal, I'll be after sculpin, since I 've only caught small 6 inchers.

Looks like Docks are quite for a while.

Glad you had a good day fishing.

Yea sculpin, I love'em, use to catch'em by the gunny sack full on the jetty at mission bay back in the day. You have to be careful of their dorsal spines, they can deliver a seriously painful poke! Poisonous lil'suckas, they don't call them rattlesnakes for nothing! Best eating shore fish there is IMO...mutt.

Nice catches. I will have to try sculpin one of these days. The only time I have caught them is on Catalina, and then 1 of them stung me. It was rather painful.....
