The battle of the bay is on! At 6 am the Capt. Hook out of Emeryville and the Goldeneye out of Berkeley, armed to the teeth with Fish Sniffer staff and readers will hit the bay to do battle, live bait style.

The plunder will be bass, halibut and whatever other denizen the briny deep throws our way. Rewards for anglers willing to put it on the include Okuma Rods and Reels, tackle, line and more but the most important prizr of all...


So avast ye mateys and grab yer rod and reel for there's fish to be caught and honor to be won!

He this is the Sniffer's associate editor, Cal Kellogg.....
Berkeley won it this year and retained the title....You can read the full story in Gone Fishing in issue 2418...2117 is just hitting newstands this weekend....
It was a great day on the bay and outside the gate. The action was not fast but some massive California halibut were landed, including a fish that weighed 39 pounds 15 ounces after bleeding....a legitimate 40 pounder....thats a trophy fish in anyone's book. A handful of 30's came over the rails and several in the 18 to 21 pound range as well....I'd guess that the average weight of halibut caught for the day was over 15 pounds...What a great day on the water......Special thanks goes out to the skippers and staff of both the Golden Eye 2000 and the Captain Hook as well as the Berkeley Marina Sportfishing Center and the Emeryville Marina Sportfishing Center.....
