    Please help Eugene Kim —

    While I never met Eugene, he always struck me as an outstanding person, and as a fisherman I consider him my colleague. Reading about how he is losing his vision was painful. I couldn’t even imagine how difficult that would be—for myself or my family. :-( I’m not a rich man, but I do what I...

    Winter Fishing on the Central Coast

    Count me in, I haven’t hit the rocks for a long time, but I would love to join you guys! (while staying 6 feet away from each other haha) Sorry for the thread jack, Walt! That’s an inspiring report and absolutely delicious dishes! Thank you. I want some of that curry right now :-)

    Any interest in PFIC Get Togethers?

    I’d be interested in a bay area or santa cruz/monterey event.
  5. Sin Coast


    The red tide has been persistent for about 3 weeks down here. It’s odd though—seems to get pushed offshore (maybe half mile) certain times of the day...then it returns inshore by afternoon [and vice versa]. It seems avoidable if you keep moving up/down the beach a few miles.

    San Jose Fisherman's Warehouse closing

    Coyote Bait & Tackle is pretty good.
  7. Sin Coast


    The CG jetty is open again. At least, it was on Sunday. The striper bite is still decent btwn Seaside & Moss landing. I’d recommend either a kastmaster, swimbait, or rapala-style plug. Maybe even soak some bait on another rod while tossing lures (sand spike rod holder needed). The recent batch...

    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?” :-)

    Too Much Gear........

    “Too much fishing gear” There is no such thing in my world (just don’t tell my wife!) haha

    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...
