Sept. 28, 2012 Rockfish, Lings And Halibut Highlight Recent Catches

(Pt. San Pablo) Anglers departing from North Bay ports like Point San Pablo have been enjoying productive action while targeting multiple species of fish.
According to Captain Frank Miller of Fury Sportfishing, rockfish and lingcod have been the most common catch recently, but his clients have been picking up a few halibut too.
Miller’s style of rockfish and lingcod fishing is unique in that he employs live anchovies teamed with circle hooks. This insures that almost all the fish are hooked in the mouth, making the little guys easily releasable.
Overall fishing inside the bay has been fairly slow, but there have been some bright spots. The best S.F. Bay action comes in the form of shark fishing for either big seven gills and soupfins or smaller leopard sharks.
If you opt to try for leopards all you need to do is stake out a spot on a mudflat in 15 to 30 feet of water and pitch out some squid, sardines or midshipmen.
Shore anglers and a few boaters are hooking stripers in San Pablo Bay while soaking live bullheads and pile worms. The action is far from red hot, but if you’re at the right place at the right time, a limit of schoolie size bass to 10 pounds is possible.Back To Reports
