We headed out to the same area as last week. It was a slow start at first, but once the sun had been up for a bit the fish decided to co-operate. We worked the marina wall for almost 4 hours to find 10 we were happy with .

I had wanted to try and troll around for halibut near southhampton (which we did for 20minutes) but as the wind picked up we decided it was a better idea to just head in. Maybe next time...

Nice, you and your buddy are doing a great job. Watched your video from 3/1 and looks awesome.

I went down to Dumbarton last week and only managed 3 perch of decent size. Tried Berkeley Pier, Golden Gate Fields, and Point Isabel for nada.

I'll have to go up and try Richmond sometime. We'll have to meet up and let me learn from you.

Well the biggest thing for us is that we get to fish in areas that nobody from shore has access to. The marina itself holds a lot of fish but there are also many anglers.

I here that! I fished by the pier at Ferry Point and only managed a few nibbles and lost some bait to crabs. I knew I should've brought out my kayak but was feeling lazy to do any paddling.

Also tried going up to Point Molate but the bite was pretty slow or meager. Berkeley pier was packed around noon. Nice weather brought out all the crowds. Saw a few people with jacksmelt and dungeness crabs (aren't these illegal to keep in the Bay??) but nothing else.

When are you going next? Where do you launch from? I'll bring my kayak next time.

Hmm. I dont think i will make it back out till the 28/29. If anything changes before then ill shoot you a pm. The launch is off of marina way. Its $10 to launch and park. It would be a l8t less paddling for you if you parked ( for free) at the ferry point pier and put your kayak in at the little beach behind it.

The perch are good, I sprinkle the fillets with garlic salt and various chile powders then seal them in aluminum foil along with a splash of water so it can steam. Usually on the grill. Then i assemble the fixins for some fish tacos with cilantro, onion, lime, and queso fresco wrapped up in corn tortillas.. This is usually how i do striper too

and you know im trying to get that first halibut this year sooner than later. I might have time this thursday or friday for a bit

I might have some time on Friday if you want to meet up and go out for a bit.
Halibut would be great! I hear some good reports of in the peninsula but waiting for it to warm up just a little more and head out to Berkeley Pier.
