    Fishing Bait or Fishing Lures?

    100% situational. I’m out to catch fish. There is a fine line between fishing and “just sitting around”. If all were equal,I would probably use lures. But it is never equal. If I get the glorious opportunity to fish. I’m going with what I think will put one on deck.

    That’s some good times Fish-Ninja. Congratulations! Fat rainbow, beautiful red belly on the Brook, and those golden/hybrids are always pretty fish.

    What fish would you add to each classification?

    Interesting topic. A couple of thoughts. Lunar cycle plays a part. I would think that halibut would be daytime feeders primarily because they are sight feeders-but every creature is an opportunist. I think that tidal action has a big influence on this. Rockfish, I think, are more influenced by...

    This is a very interesting discussion. Japanese cooking and the different flavors are much more detailed and subtle than many westerners realize, especially regarding seafood. You should move it to the off topic or recipe board and continue so that I can learn some more!

    Nice looking spot. I like jetty fishing, although each year gets tougher on the old legs. Would you and Ken be willing to give a little more info on how you got the variety of species? Were you poking for the eels? Where were the rockfish? Ken, casting to the sand for the flounder? My...

    A compilation of Bodega Harbor clamming reports (long!)

    Very cool, thanks for posting. Can you give any more insight about Washington's and why they might be more prone to paralytic seafood poisoning?

    Perch Report - HMB Beach

    "I'm not great at reading the surf, so I just kept walking, casting into the trough, and focusing my attention on areas where there were a larger concentration of molted sand crab shells." Sounds like you are on the right track. Nice fishing.

    Shark attack at Pacific Grove —

    We had an informal PFIC gathering at that very spot years ago. The one and only time I met Songslinger. Mbay caught a lingcod during the gathering. Lots of guys from the Surfsamurai crew. Beautiful spot.

    Congratulations on your trip, Ninja. I have been to Kochi a few times for my work at the Kochi Core Lab at the University. Kochi is a beautiful and peaceful Prefecture, and I visited many great tackle shops there on my visit. I was able to visit some of the great trout fishing available...

    I fished on a party boat today and we had limits by 11AM fishing all day right off of Aquatic Park and the pier there. Just FYI.

    First of the Year 2022

    Thanks for the info. More people fish south of the gate as there is more fishable beach, however it seems like if a bunch of fish show up early on the north side, it says something about water temps and possibly a pattern for the summer. Nice fishing!

    Freshwater fishing in Davis/Sacramento area

    You will want to get familiar with the entire Sac River/Delta fishery. It can be tough to access from shore, but there are opportunities. On the positive side, it does have quality fish to offer. Plenty of info out there, including in the archives, to get you started.

    Interesting scientific journal read on striped bass and migratory patterns

    This is good stuff. Thanks for sharing. I agree. Those not used to reading scientific papers might find this a bit of a grind, but it has some very interesting data and thoughtful observations as well. I will speculate that this could be used in another effort to eradicate the non-native...

    Happy Pi Day

    Dang. Congrats on the early season halibut. I admire your pursuit and your techniques, and I am certainly envious of your results. 10# line from a pier for a hali. Let me just soak that fight in for a minute.....
