    Halibut Limit Reduction?

    Good questions. I assume the Dept closely monitors halibut populations & harvest levels, considering they are an important part of the commercial fishery in SF bay. So, if harvest or limit reductions were in the forecast, we would know about it already. Slot limits wouldn’t work for halibut due...

    Ability to search & view the old message boards would be quite helpful, even if they are simply read-only. Thanks for doing this, Ken (and Rich).

    Santa Cruz Wharf pics — halibut and pink salmon

    Whoa thats crazy! During salmon season, using proper gear, it would be allowed to keep too! There have been more pink & chum salmon than normal appearing in various CA systems during the last 2yrs. But I haven’t heard of anybody catching one in the ocean! Very cool catch.

    Too Much Gear........

    I had an even better idea...and bought my wife a license and a new fishing pole & reel for her bday last week :-) I can already see the future conversations, “hey baby, check it out, I just bought you a new Shimano Calcutta reel. Surprise! Oh, can I borrow your new reel on Saturday?” :-)

    Preference: Halibut or Rockfish?

    I’d vote halibut too. And I agree CA butts can taste better than Pacbutts...depending on where caught & how they were handled. Most Pacbutts in CA are pulled up from 200+ feet of water, which affects the texture if handled wrong. AND it’s illegal to dispatch them with a firearm in CA, so most...

    Message Board, Facebook, etc.

    There seems to be more participation in Facebook fishing groups than online fishing forums lately. It probably depends on what the goal is. If the goal is to share info with a larger audience, then Yes. Excellent breakdown by EgoNonBaptizo btw!

    fishing license

    2019 licenses are available now. The annual license is still a January-December deal...despite overwhelming support for the proposal to change it (to one year from date of purchase).

    December 2018 Fishing Report, Central California, (#243),

    RE: Capitola wharf, I wouldn’t suggest ‘targeting’ steelhead in the ocean. When caught (which is rare) they’re usually incidental catches and must be released immediately.

    Does anybody here ACTUALLY own and fish with an INTERLINE ROD

    Haha yeah I remember those! It seemed like a cool idea but turned out to be a fad. Possibly phased out by spiral wrap rods.

    Anything happening in Monterey?

    There’s a great new tackle shop on the CG jetty called Out to Sea. It’s right next to the launch ramp and they even have fresh-caught sardines/squid and bloodworms :-)

    Antioch Bridge Pier

    Much respect for doing the right thing! Is that a 36” hoopnet? If so, that salmon must be like 40” long!! Amazing fish.
