Salmon Bite off Pacifica
Local Rockfish Limits

Half Moon Bay:
There were a couple of 100 plus boats plying the Marin Coast on Saturday 7-3 morning. There was a steady scratch bite with private boats and six packs seeing 1 to 6 fish scores. Tom Joseph from Fish On Charters out of Half Moon Bay (408) 348-4866 gave us kind of a play by play from there. Tom was working with the fleet off the Marin Coast when he got a cell call from a friend out of Half Moon Bay who was on hot action off Pacifica. Beside Tom was sharp eyed John "Fresh" on the New Ray Ann out of Sausalito. John saw Tom pick up the phone and then start picking up the gear. Tom took off and John quickly followed. On the two meter Tom could hear John talking with Jim on the Outer Limits asking "Johnny where you going"? John replied "I have no idea but this guy just got off the phone and picked up in a hurry so I'm following him". Dropping in the gear off the Pacifica pier in 60 feet Tom immediately hooked up. They took quick limits to 18 pounds in about 90 minutes and lost several others. Tom said that at least 10 party boats snuck down as the word got out and all boats were swinging nets with lots of multiple hookups. It was this writer's old boss Butchie B that hung the "Fresh" title on John when he was a 20 something captain some 25 years ago. He's a super sharp old salt now who doesn't miss a trick. We will have party boats scores posted later today.
Tom on the Fish On has room Sunday 7-5 and all the following week. Dennis on the New Captain Pete and Tom on the Hulicat also have room.


Second Captain Michael Cabanoas of the Huli Cat went rockfishing both Saturday and Sunday 6-21, and they posted limits of rockfish on both trips along with 18 lings to 15 pounds and a 9-pound cabezon on Saturday to go with 12 lings to 15 pounds on Sunday along with a 6-pound copper rockfish. They have been fishing south off of Pescadero, and he said, “The rockfish bite has been slow, but we are managing to put together limits by the end of the day while the ling cod are really biting.” It was flat calm in the morning before the wind picked up in the afternoon.
