Lets turn the water red. Death will be granted and blood will flow like water very soon...

Leopard sharks will be in danger very soon around the shorelines of the bay...

I think I am gonna need a bigger freezer........

So when does the bite start up for those things? Im ready to make a drive to the Alameda R.W. and give it a shot.

In the past, I'd have made a few trips down to SF Bay by now. I haven't had the chance to do that yet. I figure by this time next month there ought to be a fair amount in the bay to coax me out there.

Anyone else fish the rock wall or berkeley pier? If so, let me know....I'm startin to get the itch...I'd like to hit them up soon!!

I love the taste of shark but have never fished for them. If there is any kind of planned trip, I'd like to hitch with someone or I've considered a charter trip.

Thanks,

Dave

Dave, No worries...Its kinda like the other species right now...Where just waiting! But as soon as the bite starts...I'm all over it!

The Mossdale Militia will be hunting spots around the OA. Your more than welcome to get after em with us!

April will be a BIG trip out to Gaints Graveyard in SF. Maybe 20+ people. If your interested let me know! Thats a whole day excursion. BBQ and the whole nine yards. ;)

Last year I took EMPIRE and his boys out there. He wanted to get his oldest son a shark...We had a blast ripping into some spotties. So yes, Lets go sharking and theres no reason to pay for a charter when you can catch em pretty easy just about everywhere! 8-)

Hey Matt, is there room on shore for 1 more for the April trip? If so, I can bring my truck, a barbeque, and maybe even give you and 1 or 2 others (in your area) a ride there. I havent been to that spot yet and am looking forward to catching my 1st legal leopard...or at least watching someone else catch one, watch them clean it, and maybe get a little steak to taste!

Your in dude!... Its gonna be all day and we need cars to take up spots for fishing. Because its free parking in SF everyone gets in your way by about 9 or 10am...So that would be cool to have an extra fishing block! And yah we can find some heads to cram into your BBQ wagon..Thanks John.

Matt- 8-)

Hey all,

I rarely post on here, but i do read alot...

Id like to get in on the April action. I can help reserve spots and get there pretty early. Let me know when and where! As far as proving my experience to y'all, I've only gone out to the Berkeley Pier and caught a few little Leopards. I'm looking for a bat ray to add to my inventory...

Hey Eastbayangler ya might want to check a little further into "the giants grave yard" location.No bbq signs at both corners now.This is a spot in transition and won't be around long if there are blatent violations.Best to make it sandwiches chips ect. A large gathering might not be the best thing for the spot IMHO. By the way I fished there yesterday with herring and squid it was dead

Matt - should we consider an alternate? The whole barbeque thing sounds fun. I dont think the size of the group matters unless we're bashing beer bottles on the rocks. Is there anyplace you can park next to the water AND barbique?

Good looking out! Havnt seen the no BBQ siqns. If car clubs and moving companys can gather there while the police watch, I dont think they will mind some fisherman! ;D They do have over flow gaints tailgaters out there! YAHH!!! :D

Anyway...Yah john I'll PM you some info! ;)

Just a very very small reminder of things yet to come.... I believe this season will repeat last years season for me. I got limits nearly every time out. I took several and i mean several fish in the 56''-62'' range. Most trips didnt last longer then 2 hours.... and it was all from the shore from the start of it to the end of it.

It was unreal...

Count me in EBA, I will be coming from Sac area, and have LOTS of room in my truck. Can take at least three people and gear. PM me with details. Anyone needing a lift, PM me too. I will be the DD, so feel free to plan accordingly if riding with me, front porch delivery. ;)

Wow, I haven't caught any leapords in years, I'm already tire of crabbing. Can I tag along?
