Hey
I'm planning my first saltwater tube trip with my two fishing buds who happen to be co workers and
Have little tube time so far
i have been looking at taking them to the lab
For the first trip  I was looking at some YouTube videos and looks like there is a big sand beach area to launch from somewhere down there ??
Also looks like plenty of room for everyone to fish
Without crowding anyone
Looks like it's about 135 mile drive so I can't just go take a look at it which is why I'm looking for info on it lol
Can you guys help me out with info on where to launch from and what baits I might try there ??
I need to order some salt water baits so info on companies and which baits and what colors to have with me would be great I was thinking some Curley
Tail 3 in grubs and 3 to 4 in swim baits might be good but have no idea about colors also need info on
Rod size I was thinking about taking a 7 ft medium
Action spinning rod with 10 lb test on it and a 6-6
Medium action baitcaster with 10 lb also
Any info would be great guys I will post up an invite too once we confirm a date that works for us
Would be great to meet some other cool tubers
And learn the ropes of the lab lol
Thank you for any info hopefully our first trip I'll be successful and safe

I live in San Diego, so I have no idea where you can fish at the LAB. Down here in San Diego bay I fish with Squirmn Shads 3 inch from Bass Pro Shop along with their 4 inch shads. I use a 1/4 oz jig head wire shank. I found this to be the best swim bait around and they last a long time! I use the babby bass and the trout colors, I hope this helps. Have a wonderful time with your friends fishing.

When are you planning to make this trip the reason I ask is we have our Toy Drive on Dec. 6th in Newport Harbor. There will be quite a few of us there, plenty of guys to help you all out get in the water and have a safe fun trip. Just a thought.

Practically anything that you would throw for largemouth bass will work for these saltwater bass. They're not too finicky and will strike twice or even three times.

As for colors I personally prefer natural colors such as brown, green, red, orange, and purple. I've caught bass in that harbor with just about every color imaginable, but if you want numbers I'd stick with the al natural.

For baits to use, you'll need to imagine what bass eat. They common dine on clams, crabs, worms, and finfish. If you use lures that imitate any of the 4 I mentioned I think you'll do fine. I think. green happy

I'd also suggest ditching 10lb if you're going to finesse for these bass. 6-8lb tends to work better. But, if reaction baits is your method of choice then 10lb will work.

I hope you and your buds catch something. For a 135 mile drive, one way, I'd never leave the bay until I kicked the skunk in the groin. Slay em'! salute

i agree with ifishtoolittle, any type of swim bait or anything u can throw at typical lmb, my favorite is ghost shrimp colors from foolsbait.
