The Fish Sniffer - Weather Improves As Anglers Continue To Nail Limits Of Bottomfish
Weather Improves As Anglers Continue To Nail Limits Of Bottomfish

Written By: Cal Kellogg, July 11, 2014
Species: Rockfish Lingcod Saltwater Salmon
Location: Bodega Bay,

The good news is that the weather has calmed down off Bodega Bay and anglers are boating limits of rockfish and lingcod. On the downside, while the occasional salmon is being caught, skippers have not been able to locate a large concentration of fish, but that could change at any time.

Captain David Hammond of Delta Pro Fishing is now operating out Bodega Bay. His most recent trip produced full limits of rockfish and lings, but only a single keeper salmon was caught.

Other Bodega area charter boats reported wide-open fishing off Fort Ross. On the New Sea Angler’s most recent trip to Fort Ross it only took 55 minutes to boat 35 limits of rockfish and lingcod.

Captain Wong of NorCal Sportfishing Adventures has been in the thick of the bottomfish action in Bodega, putting his clients on full limits of rocks and lings. Wong is hopeful that the salmon bite will kick into high gear now that the weather has come down a bit.

If you’re itching to explore Bodega waters for salmon and more, Captain Tim Wong of Norcal Sportfishing Adventures is the man to call. Tim specializes in targeting kings, lings, rockfish, halibut, albacore and crabs from his six pack vessel The Working Girl. Tim can be reached at (707) 228-8322 or visit him on line at

Captain David Hammond is also available in Bodega for the month of July for salmon, rockfish and lingcod. Hammond can be reached at (916) 479-3492.
