    9 Calico Bass (Kelp Bass) Facts You Should Know

    9 Calico Bass (Kelp Bass) Facts You Should Know

    As anglers and spears I think it's important for us to know a little bit about the fish we're targeting.
    I'm starting to put together these easy to consume fish guides of the local species here in Southern California. Hopefully we can expand this into Baja and around the world.
    if you have any recommendations I'd love to hear them on how I can make these better.
    This is the audio from my YouTube video so if you want to see pictures just type in "cast and spear calico bass" and you should see it.
    Tight lines everyone!

Killer format, incredible guests

Love the short format of the show, packs all the info into bite-sized chunks so I can get back out on the water!

HugeAves ,

Excellent advice

I've been fishing for quite some time and still get a ton of great ideas and advice from Jon's podcast. Highly recommend to anyone who likes to fish, whether you're a beginner or a pro!
