Fished near a shipwreck out of Redwood City Marina yesterday from about 8:00AM 'til a little after 1:00PM with my buddies Bob and Ken. We were after lite tackle shark action at a spot Bob's been fishing for years. I brought my 6' medium action Quantum Tournament Series IM8 w/Shimano Corvalus 300, 14lb Stren line, 40lb steel leader, and size 5/0 gamakatsu wide gap hooks.

We pulled up to the spot and Ken immediately hooked into a small ray. As he was battling it a ~6' sturgeon swam by the boat, on the surface (when we got there the water was only 2.5'). That gave us a good little rush until we realized Ken's line was going the other way! Anyway, we went through two 3lb boxes of squid (mostly used half pieces) and got bit on every single cast. The longest wait for a bite was probably 6 or 7 minutes. I caught 23 leopards and 5 small rays, Bob got 20 something leopards and 1 ray, and Ken got 30 something leopards and 6 rays. I got the biggest shark and the biggest ray. Most of the sharks were all female clones - all around the 2' - 2.5' range, but we each got a couple of 3'ers. Luckily all the rays were small, since we were all using pretty lite tackle.

Pictured is Bob's and my largest leopards.

Hey Phishinpat - a lot of the sharks got airborn since the water was so shallow when we first got there. Even some of the rays did!

It's a blast out there. When we get one that jumps out of the water we all start hootin' and hollerin' like a bunch of drunk hillbillies.

Bob actually threw on a float and caught a leopard on a float rig!

To top that, next time we go I'm going to catch one on a poke pole! I'll be sure to get pictures.

LMAO... do share the photos... that will make for a great story!

Nice sharks RH. Raysharking has similar luck in the area when boating as well. Lots of hungry leps.

Right on D.

Reason I asked was when I was fishing Ballena bay on an outgoing tide, the leopards got airborn quite a few times. Too bad the rays there never got airborn, i would love to see that.
