went out this morning a couple miles south of dumbarton bridge to a few nice spots i have out there. pole was in the water at about 8:30 water was glass the sun was out, an excellent morning on the bay. i fished two of my spots till about 1:30 and got NOTHING not even a bite! >:(
in the 5 hours i was there i counted 14 sturgeon coming to the surface they were not jumping. they would just come to the top of the water and do a barrel roll it was pretty cool watching there fins stick up out of the water as they rolled over, normally i just see them jumping. one was only about 10 or 15 ft from my boat and he was huge atleast 7'er! it was very frustrating watching all these fish and not a single bite. so i decided to head closer to the bridge and caught a few sharks and called it a day. i talked to a few other guys out there and they also got nothing not even a bite.
water temp 59
depths, 25',30',35'
ghost, grass, herring, anchovies, and eel

Hey Mike,
Where you been? It been awhile having seen you post I thought you quit fishing for sturgeon. :)
The outgoing tide in the morning is good but I'm haven't has any good success fishing out there on a outgoing tho.
I'll take your words and will head out Saturday.

RENO BOYS, i fish as much as i possibly can, i am fortunate to have a cool ass ol ladie who doesnt mind me leaving her with the three kids all the time to go fishing, as far as work goes, i work hard and fish even harder!

hey HAWAIIANHOOKER yes the tides arent that bad this weekend but they were about the same on thurs when i got skunkd, so i gunna give it a one week rest and fish the better tides next week. if you guys go out this weekend good luck and let us know how you did.

3/01 report...
Hit the dumbarton this morning and it was a bad day fishing in south bay...winds up to 10 to 15mph around 7am and it was so strong that the boat doing 180 degree the whole time while we're trying to fish.
The sturgeon are not hurry I guess...b/c they were just jumping around. Call the day early b/c the WIND was bad and the water was rough and choppy. We have a lot of fun getting back to the dock again today.
