I think there are a few fish around... I saw one boiling today at first street, but I don't think we have seen any big schools come in yet. Everything
seems a month behind usual. If today were August 16th, then all this would be pretty normal.
"...In Suisun Bay, Tony Lopez of Benicia Bait said, “There were five salmon landed off of the shoreline on Saturday on Vee-Zee or similar heavy spinners, and there were only 9 salmon taken off of the banks before this date. The incoming tide has been the top time..."
Curious about the number of hours of effort needed to land a fish there. Realistically, how many hours are spent per fish landed? (Assuming the bulk of your time fishing is done during the peak part of the season.)
This was my 7th trip out. I spend about 4 hours per trip. I timed my casts to be about two minutes per cast, 30 per hour. That's 840 casts. It's been called "a fish of a thousand casts", and by my math that's about right.
