What do you guys recommend for fishing mid next week- Halibut/Stripers or Rockfish/Lingcod?

Where about are you planning to fish at?

I should have been more specific... probably leaving from Berkeley/Emeryville or HMB.

Currently inside the bay the Striper bite has been good from time to time... Usually summer months are pretty good for stripers... With the major halibut run being over its harder to pick these guys, but if you do get them it'll either be a small typical bay halibut size (22-26in.) or a nice big one... Overall the striper bite has been decent...

If you're going out of HMB... ummm... I'm not sure what you can target.... I'm not sure what the rockfish regulations (might be closed) are since i don't really target these guys so you may want to ask before proceeding.... and with the salmon season being closed... there is not much to target unless the striper run has been good (haven't heard too much from outside the gate)....

I'm not sure if what I have said will help, but I would probably just suggest staying local and do a striper/halibut combo....

I want to go out this Sunday 31st. This is my first time for halibut and strippers in the bay. Any suggestion of location?

For strippers, go to Mitchell Brothers Theatre in San Francisco. ;D
