If you had to use one word to describe the fishing being experienced by saltwater enthusiasts departing from the Pt. San Pablo Marina it would be variety…As in, they are catching a variety of quality gamefish.
“The fishing has been really good for us,” related Captain Frank Miller of Fury Sportfishing. “Our main target recently has been rockfish outside the Golden Gate and we’ve been doing well catching lots of limits. We are fishing with live anchovies pinned on circle hooks. We’ve been picking up quiet a few lingcod too.”
“Some days if the conditions look good we’ll try for salmon and we’ve found receptive fish along the north side. Another bite that has been good, depending on the conditions has been the halibut bite on the bars outside the gate. When things are right we’ve been picking up from 4 to 6 halibut a trip averaging 10 to 12 pounds,” said Miller.
“Inside the bay things have been pretty slow for halibut and bass. Bass are hard to find and the halibut I’ve found in the bay have been on the small side. We went shark fishing for the big seven gills and cow sharks this week. We got fish in the 30 to 70 pound class to the boat and we lost a couple of other magnum,” he stated.
“I didn’t feel bad about losing the big ones. We would have released them anyway and we had them on long enough that every one got to experience what we were dealing with. It was a lot of fun,” exclaimed Miller.Back To Reports
