I didn't make it to Berkeley in time to pick up any live anchovies, but I did get a bag of frozen chovies. I tossed one out on a sliding sinker rig (4/0 octopus hook and 2oz cannonball sinker) and cast a couple out on a hi-lo (4/0 octopus hooks and 4oz pyramid sinker). About halfway through the incoming tide, line starts peeling off one of my reels. A few headshakes conviced me that I had a small shark on, but it turned out to be a 26" halibut. I caught the fish with my hi-lo setup. That made my day.

One of my friends hooked a little soupfin that was covered with sea lice later, also on frozen chovy. I packed it up and left with my friends as the sun started to go down.

Compared to what I saw last week, the halibut coming over the side are smaller with many sub-legal fish being caught.

Here's a pic of what an anchovy must see before it's swallowed.

I was there too from about noon til about three. Had no luck getting bait with the cast net, but did manage to get one live anchovie from this guy named mike. Caught a 23 inch hali off of that one anchovie. Too bad I didn't run into you guycognito.
