In this episode we’re mothershipping the kayaks to a new area called Chester’s Rock, where Jeff explains how we’ll be working giant, weedless swimbaits for a voracious predator among the kelp forests: calico bass, or kelp bass.

These fish launch ambush attacks from the kelp stalks, resulting in explosive surface strikes that have us giggling like schoolgirls.

COMMENT BELOW and tell me if you’ve ever caught or eaten calico bass! What techniques do you use for them? How do you cook ’em up? If you’ve never caught one, what’s your favorite fish to catch and cook?
