Decided to hit the bay today with my old man to see if we could put some decent sized fish in the boat. Launched from San Leandro about 630 and headed west. Set up in 45' H2O and in about 20 minutes we had our first fish in the boat.

About 30 minutes later we had another fish in the boat.

51.5" and 28lbs

Constant action all day but we weren't fishing for dinks so if they couldn't eat the whole bait, we didn't bother setting the hook. Only big fish for us today. Used 12/0 Gamakatsu's on 5' steel leaders.

Pulled the plug about 12:30 when slack tide hit.

Not a bad day on the bay.

It was pretty clear for us today but we weren't near shallow water where it gets muddy. Halibut reports are kicking off like crazy though.

Pretty fish, JB.

That's a big a$$ hook!

Nice! Have been thinking about a shark trip but the sturgeon fishing in the delta has been too good. Same hook I use, they are badass!

Nice vid. That fish was pretty hot and worked your dad over pretty good.

Me gusta mucho.

After an unfortunate hiatus I am about ready, and that just whet my appetite.
