View Full Version : Salmon bite picks up outside The Gate

I went out on The TigerFish out of Emeryville 8/1/2013 we were mooching @35 pulls fish near the shipping lanes about 5 miles out of the gate I got a 24 lb King and two other fish and lost two or three. Boat had limits or near limits. The boats that are trolling are doing a little better than mooching but mooching is much more relaxing.

You guys fishing in between the buoys and the north bar? Or out last the bar?? Heading out tmrw am? Was going to shoot straight to muir beach but maybe I should try that area first!

Skip go straight to muir first. It's where the fleet has been the last three days. If you are mooching find some bait before you put the rods in. Limits for 4 by 1030 today for us. Trolling cable baiters and wma
