Crab Opens Nov 3rd

Rockfishing has been the best thing going out of Half Moon Bay, but this is all set to change with the arrival of the recreational Dungeness crab season starting this coming Saturday, November 3rd. Salmon fishing has slowed down considerably, and all party boats are focusing on the solid rockfishing south of the harbor.
Second captain Michael Cabanas of the Huli Cat said, “We went south to San Gregorio for the past few days, and limits of school fish along with lings to 13 pounds have been coming with regularity. The ocean conditions have been outstanding with glassy seas with only a slight breeze and roll. Brian Hiegert of Oakdale landed the jackpot ling at 13 pounds on a hitchhiker on Saturday, October 27th.”

Further north in Pacifica, the momentum is building for the recreational crab opener, and since a fishing license is not needed off of the pier, the pier will be stacked and packed with anglers waiting for the gates to be opened at 4:00 a.m. The pier is open daily from 4AM to 10PM, unless closed due to inclement weather or high surf. Alcohol
smoking, biking, dogs with the exception of service dogs, overhead casting, and glass containers are prohibited on the pier.
