    Monterey 9/25 SALMON SIGHTED!!!

    I was thinking about that thread when making my rigs. Looks like a great idea, might try a variant of that. I'm thinking put a bead and stopper knot on the mainline roughly the depth of the water I'm fishing. When the salmon bites, the bead and knot will apply enough pressure to make a hook set...

    Monterey 9/25 SALMON SIGHTED!!!

    WARNING: This is long and rambly with only one picture. Feel free to skip around. I was able to get some time this Saturday to go fishing. I originally wanted to go check out the Seacliff and Capitola piers, but decided to go to Monterey since traffic was gonna be terrible either way. After...

    Monterey 9/8

    I got to Moss Landing at 5:59AM, still too dark to see anything clearly. The only other vehicle sitting there was a old 80's rv, not too unlike the one I used to go camping in as a kid. Flashlight in hand, I started to scurry along the rocks, picking mussels and poke poling holes as I went...

    Monterey 9/1

This proved to be a significant quality of life improvement, since I typically take 3 buckets, a 20lb backpack...

    Monterey report 8/6

    Hello again everyone! Been a LONG while since I posted here. Mostly cause I don't record my fishing trips, but I'm getting around to regularly recording them in my logs. I arrived at Monterey Wharf #2 at 7:20 AM. The pier was uncrowded, surprising since I've never been there so early. There was...

    Coast Guard Pier 12/18/2020

    Went out to the Coast Guard Pier and it didn't disappoint. Caught a Cabazon that was 12 in(released, legal size is 15 in) and a 8in black and yellow rock fish(kept for soup). Both were caught on squid fished between the rocks, around 12pm. Kept fishing for 2 hours and lost about 6 rigs with no...
