San Clemente Island

Southern California

San Clemente Island is a haven for big trophy calico bass, like the one you have been chasing. In normal conditions, the island produces too many 5 lb.+ calico bass to count with some serious brutes in the mix. The island isn’t just for the bass nuts, there is quality yellowtail fishing, rock fishing, sheephead and doormat sized halibut. This island has a bit of everything.
