We went out Tuesday and tried Angel Island, Paradise, and the Flats. No bites! There were a lot of birds and bait near Angel Island but we couldn't get and takers. I think it is still too early. I heard some fish being caught near Oyster Point trolling.

Halibut is a hit or mis right now. Should be in very soon.

I am kinda hopin the salmon season continues to take some pressure off the butts.They have been gettin pounded with the lack of a salmon season last couple years.

yea thats what i was hoping too, hopefully salmon fishing helps out the butts population, or we might have a halibut closure!! that would be bad news!

Man why not put a limit on how many Halibut you can take a year. 10 is fair enought or even less. I tried 3 times last year and had plenty of bites but couldn't get any to the boat. Some people are definately taking way too many butts and if it keeps up with 3 a day and no season limit we will be wondering in 10 years what happened to our halibut?
