Anyone have personal experience with a GOOD six pac charter out of Bodega, Sausalito or other bay area ports. Looking for a Salmon/ rockfish combo.

Thanks

Try Bud Light.. Seriously though it's a MMC Six Pax not Six Pac. Not sure who's going out of Bodega anymore. Try Sausalito.

Delta Pro Fishing out of Bodega Bay was awesome for us.
The 6 of us caught limits of salmon in less than 3 hours.'
Most of them were hops. He also does combo trips.
Good Luck

So i booked a trip Fri 8-9, with Reellentless sportfishing out of Bodega. Wanted Salmon but found nothing trolling for a few hrs so went on for limits of rock fish and a few lings. Capt said Salmon bite died a week or so before. Had a good time anyway.

The trolling bite did turn off.....but the mooch bite did not. I saw a lot of the six pack guys from the delta up there and the six packs that "live" there such as Miss Anita and others still did well. And yes when everyone was trolling the whistle buoy the fish were stacked and bitting and everyone was getting easy limits. But when the fish spread out that's when the out of town charters had a hard time. Check out the Lawsons Landing report the moochers have been on a steady bite. That's why its important to try to get a local charter especially late in the season. RF

I think Reellentless is out of Bodega most of the year, spring to December. Miss Anita was fishing right next to us. We were up the Sonoma coast, not down by Tomales. Had fun, will try for salmon again.

RFJust goes to show you what people say and don't know what there talking about, I fish in Bodega Bay 9 months out of the year, Right up there as a Highliner, ask anyone that knows what there talking about, just because I don't post glory reports on the forums doesn't mean crap. Yes they were catching a few Salmon mooching, one or two a boat fishing all day at that time, I'm on the water 7 days a week and try and give my clients the best trip possible, 6 guys waiting 8 hrs for a bite or two makes for a long day. Spend more time on the water and less on the computer and you'll really know whats going on. Rich, Thanks again for coming out.

I have always heard you run a good operation from guys who have gone out with you before. Sometimes the fish bite and sometimes it's better to go for option B and have some fun with your day! Rockfish all day long=fish tacos and makes me one happy camper!

I have family/friends at Lawsons from June 1 until last week and have been doing so for 20 years annually. We are pretty versed on the Salmon bite daily. Not sure why you would pick my response to vent? There were mornings I saw the 6 pack trollers (you included) from Bird to Elephant and we were back in at the dock sometimes by10 am with limits. If you want to tell me trolling is better then you are right!!....... but only about half of the time! And WRONG the other. Trolling might be easier with a full boat of inexperienced anglers but there are some days where mooching will better 10 to 1 vs trolling and vise versa. I see you in the delta all the time sturgeon fishing!! And I see you in the SF Bay Halibut fishing etc. So I spend plenty time on the water....but thanks for asking! RF

Not venting just telling it the way I see it everyday. I did take it to offense when you insinuated I short stroked my clients though and didn't take them to where the fish were or fished for them the way you thought I should of fished for them. I always go above and beyond. Take Care and Good Luck on your fishing excursions.

On Fri 8-9 Lawsons Landing "Willie" posted this on his fishing report via the Lawsons Landing Website.....................
Ryan Larsen's fish weighed 27 pounds. Nick's and Ryan's fish, as well as the Stahl's, all came from a mooching bite just below the Trees. Unfortunately, the bite lasted a couple of hours and the fish moved on. The mooching bite has been pretty good early and late in the right spots. Those spots can change, but seem to run pretty consistently between Bird Rock and the Keyholes. Trolling has been tough, especially with all the jellies and seaweed. Ten Mile has had a few salmon for the die hard troller, although there can be a lot of space between the fish. RF

And some more reports from Bodega on or around 8-9..............So far today we've pulled out seven boats with limits of salmon, one of them with four limits. Two boats were trolling for six of those fish, the other 18 salmon came mooching. Their secret: "I stayed out of the fleet."

Grant Solberg and Dennis Stocking mooched up two nice limits of salmon today, half from the Trees and half from the Keyholes.

The Nursements caught just one fish today, but Mara's salmon weighed 27 pounds, so really, they only needed the one. The one fish stories were way more common than the limited out stories, but there were a few other boats that limited today. It was the usual suspects for where the biting fish were found, the Keyholes/Elephant, the Trees, and to a lesser extent, McClure's beach. Depths ranged from 40 to 80 feet with 70 being the most popular. Moochers again scored better than trollers. Surfperch action was good again but the halibut did a no-show. Divers on the bar reported visibility so bad that they couldn't have seen a halibut even if one had been there.

Captain Longhair limited out again, this time putting Miss Hooker over a 30 pound salmon. These four fish were all taken on the mooch in 70 feet of water off of Elephant Rock (3810.5'). RF

Kapulani Chong of Lodi caught this nice 31 pounder today. The fish is larger than it looks, Kapulani makes it look small. A little slower action for the trollers today, a little better for some of the moochers. A few more halibut from Hog Island. It's not red hot but it is better than a few days ago. RF

These above post go to show that when the troll is on....its on......but this past 2 months the mooch bite was steady and the troll was hit or miss? Even earlier at the whistle bouy when everyone was getting limits fast.....those who mooched caught fish as well (some were doing it illegally though) On Friday 8-9 we were out there and I sent text pics to some buddies at 10 am back at camp with limits (8 fish) 20-30lbs........mooching.

Reel Fun. Heard you mention the tractor launch the other day and thought "how the hell does that work?". My buddy and I parked at Dillan the other day and ran to Lawson's and saw the trailer's parked on the beach and saw a boat pull in and the tractor bring the trailer. Pretty crazy never thought it possible. Saw the report of a 26 pound or so striper out of there the other day.

And this was posted Sat 8-10........Again pointing out that during that time one method outfished another?.....................Saturday, August 10, 2013

While the numbers of fish coming in have declined, there are still quite a few limits coming in. There's a few skunks as well, but most of the fishermen that I spoke with had at least one salmon in the boat. Yet again, mooching outperformed trolling, and I heard that a few die-hard trollers were spotted with lines in the water and engines off. What ever happened to standing by your convictions? Most of the early successes that I spoke with today had mooched away from the other boats. In other news, even though the divers saw nothing again today, I saw a halibut from (I believe) Ten Mile and heard of three other flatties jigged up on the bar. RF

Summer must be over, as we only launched four boats today. Of those, one had a salmon, mooched in front of the Trees in 78 feet of water, and one caught this 20 pound striper. Mike Gibson of Lodi declined to be photographed with his fish but did let us know that it bit live bait on the bar. That's all the stories for today. The launch at Lawsons is great!! They have bait right there and it saves a lot of time if you plan on fishing Elephant/Bird rock on down to 10 mile. Great people and a nice place to camp. Some will point out a dirty restroom every now & then or a loud neighbor once in a while but overall nice place friendly campers with card games going and satellite tv for the game in most camp rigs.

I always go above and beyond. Take Care and Good Luck on your fishing excursions. This is my fault! I did not read through the post to see that it was pointed at you. I only wanted to point out that mooching was hot when trolling was not and a lot of 6 pack guys that fish the Delta made the treck because of the hot trolling bite in July......but stuck to that well into August when the private guys were doing great mooching. I have seen you on the water Sturgeon fishing and I know you work hard for your clients...as most guides do. I have been told you are a great guide and very good with the diamonbacks!! I wish you the best...and hope to see you on the water in a few months chasing those D Backs! RF
