Salmon Stays Strong!

Captain Jerad Davis of the Salty Lady out of Sausalito said, “It was a pretty good bite for the entire fleet on Monday 9-2, and it looks limit more fish are moving in with reports of limits for six-packs and scores around a fish per rod or just below on the larger party boats. We had 22 salmon up to 26 pounds for 24 anglers on Monday with plenty of action, and as these fish are big and mad, you can’t get every one of the big ones in. It’s as they are fighting for their lives. We had quite a big of missed opportunities, but that’s part of what makes this so exciting.”
Captain Steve Mitchell of Hook’d Sport Fishing has been running joint adventure with Captain Joey Gamez of Golden State Sport Fishing, and he said, “The fishing has been pretty steady, and the big fish showed up big time on Monday with several boats finding easy limits of big toads.”
The Happy Hooker out of Berkeley Marina went up the Marin coast on Labor Day for 21 ling cod and 29 limits of rockfish for some decent action. They will be focusing upon rockfish/lingcod trips this week.
The California Dawn out of Berkeley Marina is also concentrating on rockfish/lings on their potluck trips, and they made some drifts in the bay for halibut on the way back to the harbor. They ended up with 24 limits of rockfish, 18 lings to 14 pounds, 31 halibut to 20 pounds, and 2 bonus thresher sharks.
