Salmon At the Islands
Local Rockfish Easy Limits

Half Moon Bay:
Captain Dennis Baxter of the New Captain Pete went rockfishing on Sunday 5-24  south to San Gregorio, and they came through with limits of rockfish and a ling cod per rod for a light load. He said, “The lings weren’t chomping today, and my son Braden had more difficulty with his deadly Fish Trap rigs.” He was encouraged by the first signs of bait in the area for some time with anchovies along with squid showing up offshore. He said, “A few private boats are still scratching out a salmon or two, but there is no concentration of scores, so in the meantime, we will focus on rockfishing.”

Captain Dennis Baxter of the New Captain Pete will be focusing upon coastal rockfishing this weekend with the paucity of salmon in the area. Private boaters keep trying, and some are rewarded with a fish or two on occasion on Thursday 5-21, but the bite is still lacking by party boat terms. He said, “We will be focusing on lings with whole marinated squid on trap rigs as this presentation equals the playing field for novice fishermen.” The lings have not been biting on the shrimp flies, but they are sucking down the whole baits.

Half Moon Bay:
Despite a flurry of salmon action below the Farallons at the end of the past week, rockfishing remained the constant along the San Mateo coastline. Second captain Guy Anthony ran the New Captain Pete on Sunday 5-17 for two salmon, leaving Captain Dennis Baxter to focus on coastal rockfishing until the salmon arrive in force. Salmon scores at the Island dropped from a solid fish and half to limits on Thursday to a top score of 12 fish for 14 anglers for boats fishing at Fanny Shoals on Sunday.
Second Captain Mike Cabanas of the Huli Cat out of Half Moon Bay took the hint on Saturday, , and he went rockfishing south of the harbor to the northern end of Martin’s Beach for 17 limits of rockfish and 18 ling cod to 8 pounds. He said, “The salmon bite slowed down on Friday, so our passengers wanted a sure thing, and the ling cod bite great, particularly on a trap rig loaded with a frozen herring.”
