These little guys were our bigger little buddies of our five. For our efforts we earned a 3rd place plaque and a check to go with it. It was an interesting day. Starting out with a race for bragging rights between two 40 horse powered bass sleighing bath tubs during a 34 boat shotgun start in the middle of a rain storm. We handed @ryan_martin_ @vince_cinquini a whooping they won’t soon forget then we took the first place in points spot from them on the way out. On that note... a big shout out to them and the rest of the field for making us fish our hearts out at every event. If it wasn’t for the anglers of the SBS we wouldn’t be half the anglers we are. Another shout of recognition goes to @imnotjamesbond and @conan.craig for a podium finish in the family division. Love seeing the pure stoke that is coming out of that division. Big thanks to @westcoasttrailers and his lady for helping me dish out the pulled pork off the @traegergrills. I know everything that comes off the Treager is gonna be killler! Thanks again to all our sponsors... @seekerrods @salty_crew @madsonofamerica and @mc_swimbaits. Once again... couldn’t do it without you. #sbsfishing #spottedbaybass #teamrizo #seekerrods #saltycrew #madsonofamerica #mcswimbaits

Well... October just seems to be my month... 2 years ago I had what I figured to be the best light line link up I could have when I caught a 40lb wahoo on 40lb Flouro on a spinner. I think this might trump that catch. Yesterday... after driving the boat til 3:30 am... I was woken up by at 5 by the fish alarm on the Fathometer. Billy pulled the throttles back and the two of us went at it while everyone else was slumbering away. We put out a few baits when he ran out and said they were at 30 fathoms... I tied on a flat fall on one of the boat rods with a Trinidad 30 that we had 50lb on and on the second grind back up went tight. 2 spooling's and 4 laps later the fight ended on the bow with a 260lb portly little buddy that makes the lack of sleep worth it all. Super stoked to say the least... a lot of these fish have been caught on big gear and I fell so fortunate and grateful to bag mine on the light stuff... just wish it was on a Seeker but we don't have any on the boat so the Shimano had to do the trick. #fvgambler @salty_crew #saltycrew @seekerrods #seekerrods @madsonofamerica #madsonofamerica @hoganstackle #hoganstackle #sbsfishing #wickedtuna #bluefintuna #noneedtoglennit

Happy 4th of July to all especially my fishy friends out there. The flag is in the hat modeled by my good friend Ryan @whitebonecreations . He needed something besides himself for the pic so he put a #spottedbaybass in the boat and yes it was caught on the go to lure "the down under" from @coolbaitlures . #4thofjuly #enjoytheday #coolbaits #spottie #spot #goodfriends #celebrate #saltwaterbass #sbsfishing #saltylake #cousiintackle

A chunky #spottedbaybass is cradled by @fruyou31 while testing a new @cousins_tackle rod in the salt of so. Cal.. He ventured south from his home base in Oregon to visit family, stop by the #cousiintackle factory and do some fishing. The bait of choice @coolbaitlures #cousinsrodsprostaff #harborbass #baybass #spotties #spottie #spot #saltwaterbass #sbsfishing #spinbait #coolbaits #thedownunder

Bass oddly! Following up yesterday's pic here's one of a smallmouth bass caught by my team partner @gerrymahieu with a cull ball attached to its mouth. This fish was thin and apparently hadn't eaten in awhile. When you've got to eat you've got to eat and this fish did just that. The cull ball was removed and the bass was released to the waters of lake Havasu. #fishoddities #smallmouthbass #fishing #youneverknowwhatyourgoingtocatch #whatsinyourmouth #cullballs #bass #bassfishing #uniquecatch #bassin #catchandrelease #sbsfishing #coolbaitlures #whitebonecreations

The upgrade we were looking for in tough conditions! 1.5 lb to 6.5 lbs kicked us into a top 5 finish at the SBS Hardbait Open. Wish I could say I contributed but my netting skills were on fire.... Thanks Gerry of SBS for doing what you do @ryan_martin_ @steve_shook and I had a blast!

Bait of choice! Last night was a night to remember fishing the harbor with Ryan O. Of @whitebonecreations . Over 200 fish, mostly calico and sand bass were boated and we were bit continuously. My bait that was on fire was " the down under " by @coolbaitlures. I never go fishing without them. They are truly money as I've made thousands $ fishing them in the past year. Mixed in to our huge numbers last night were bass ranging in size from small to 4lbs. #bass #sandbass #calicobass #harbor #fish #harborfishing #nightbite #moonlit #fishing #epicbite #asgoodasitgets #onfire #bassin #harborbass #saltwater #saltwaterfishing #saltwaterbass #bassfishing #biteson #pumped #onthechew #beautifulnight #daiwareels #daiwacoastaltws #calico #coolbaits #sbsfishing #whitebonecreations

Finally getting around to our write up of our last tourney. Still pumped on our victory at the SBS Long Beach event. Felt pretty confident heading into this event as a week before this we headed to San Clemente island looking for yellows and ran into a ripper calico bite. With knowing that we headed straight there Saturday morning and it paid off. It was as wide open as maybe a calico bite can get. Absolutely mental! Top to bottom they bit the whole kit. After hours of insanity and throwing back 4lbrs like they were going out of style we took off for Catalina with hopes of putting a monster in our bag. Cat was a no go so we put the hammer down and crossed home. Estimating we had around 22-25lbs we were stoked to see the scale hit 25! When we left the island we told each other if we don't win that we had our best day of calico fishing ever and it would be worth every penny we spent to enter the event. Cherry on top we won. Big thanks to @gerrymahieu for running such fun events. Now on to Olive Crest charity event where Jay will be a captain and Mikes company will be participating. Then 2 days after that is is bound for Mexico for a week in the Shogun skiff trip! (Stay tuned)!!! #sbsfishing

Going back to a time when I partnered with one of the greatest team tournament fishermen in the history of Southern California, j poore. His accomplishments will be hard to beat. Now give me my fish back!

My fishing partner checking out the Daiwa coastal tws reel. I think it was the blue side plate that held his interest! #bassfishing #frontdeck #kingsnake #fish #daiwareels #coastaltws #fishingpartner #sbsfishing #coolbaits #coolbaitlures #whitebonecreations #lovethatreel
