Started at 1:40 pm and fished the incoming tide until 4:40. Very slow bite until around 3:50. Then the mackerel began biting anything and everything that hit the water. I fished a 21 gram coltsniper jig and kept 14 mackerel. I also caught a short halibut that gave me a good chomp as I was unhooking it. As I left, everyone else was loading up on mackerel.

How were you using the coltsniper? The halibut would suggest vertical jigging or a slow retrieve.

Medium cast out and vertical jigging on the way back in. Most of the hits were on the drop. The halibut hit when I let the lure hit the bottom after first making the cast.
