We know, we're just pulling your leg a little. ;D

Here's the deal on the California butts, in the spring summer and fall they are in shallow in the warmer calmer water doing what they do best, eating and making little halibut.

In the late fall when the temperatures start to drop and the weather gets rougher they move out to deeper water, in southern Cal we'd find them out in 90-125 feet of water come winter time.

Up here in Eureka a few people fish them in the winter in the bay but the salinity is lower due to the rain and the turbidity is way up due to the runoff so the catch rate really sucks.

Nobody in their right mind goes outside the bay most of the time as it's just too snotty to be safe or fun.

As for the actual numbers of the temperature ranges I haven't the foggiest idea.
