Anchovies or sardines in San Francisco Bay, sold at Berkley or fishermans wharf

From what I've heard, the guy that supplies the live bait sold his boat and as of the first we don't know when/if we'll have live bait. There is supposed to be a boat coming from southern California but not for sure. I think the price of cast nets is gonna go up.

You guys said it! With the high cost of live bait you'd think someone would be on this.... You can get live shiners and bull heads at several bait shops. In my neck of the woods loch lomand live bait has em as does leonards bait shop in port sonoma. They work pretty well for strippers and hailbut.
To be honest, the biggest halibut I've caught in the bay has been drifting frozen chovies on live bait rigs.

With the cost of fuel rising everyday I cant help but wonder what a scoop would go for this year.

Eleventy billion dollars a scoop. ;D ;)

Seriously, my guess would be it's probably going to be around $50 or higher.
