With the S.F. Bay caught halibut being very exceptional this year, whether you're on a boat or say the Berkeley Pier, a person like myself wonders why there isn't more halibut caught off our surfzone? Is it because more surfishermen go after striped bass and perch?...or, just not as many people reporting on the incidence of surf caught halibut?

I have had the opportunity of fish the shores of Southern California a few times. I know from experience and from the reports I routinely read from down there, that they get more surf caught halibuts than us here in Nor Cal, they even get them in the river jettys. Is the So Cal topography and hydraulics different then Nor Cal, that theirs is more condusive for surf halibut?

Just wondering what your thoughts were on this. Thanks for any replies.

They're there, the reports just don't get posted here.
