Middle Bay

April 28, 2011 : : 4.2 high @ 7:17am and a 0.9 low @ 1:45pm

Woke up sick and feeling out of it but weather conditions were predicted to be good so went anyway. Decided to fish the middle and front bay in deeper water. Used heavier 3/4 and 1oz darter heads to get down deeper. Had a slow day, got a bunch of some of the biggest lizard fish 
I have ever seen. Some weren't even hooked, just hanging onto the swim bait for the ride. Released a 14" Sand Bass and small 18" halibut.

Started collecting old vintage fishing lures, anyone that finds some good ones at garage sales 
or swap meet grab them for me.

Early Spring Halibut

4/14/2011: : 5.1 high @ 6:52 and  -0.2 low @ 1:16 
 Got a early start today on the water. Hit bait barge and got a half scope of sardines for halibut fishing. Waiting for tide to switch hit a few of my go to spotted bass and sand bass spots. They were hitting the 3 inch chartreuse swim baits on the drop. Got a few bass and moved on to  fish some halibut spots. First drift at 9:45 when the tide just started to switch and water was moving  I got hit hard and got a nice 25 Inch keeper halibut. Wind picked up and made it hard to fish. Got a few more bass and a short halibut. Super fun day and good weather.

4 Spotted Bass, 1 Sand Bass and 2 Halibut (legal @ 25" and a short @ 20.5")

4.0 High Tide @ 11:05 and 1.4 Low Tide @ 4:26pm

We went in search of ling cod. Made bait early in am, sabki big mackerel. Fished the pipe and got no takers. Migrated to the edge of the kelp. Sam switched to a squid hoochie and hooked up a nice calico bass and red vermilion. Fishing jetty on the inside Sam snagged a huge starfish. Crazy colors and textures.
