Ed theres not much going on . sturgeon would be your best bet. Most don't go out until salmon opens.

Sturgeon...South Bay...Like maybe near the Oakland Airport. I have read some very good reports about the recent catches in that area.

Good Luck!!!

There have been some good reports on South Bay sturgeon, but is not appearing to be a consistent bite. If you have fished this area before and know what you are doing then more power to you, but if you are not that knowledgable then I would be sure and call Hi's tackle shop for some advice or Keith Fraser at Loch Lomond who undoubtedly give you a starting point. If you follow these borads closely, down on the sturgeon boards in particular, you'll see that there is a small group who target this area. Some are very good and maybe, just maybe, if you PM them they will throw you a bone on where to start.
Some sharks being caught but all on the smaller side. Fish deeper if you try.
You can also post on the sturgeon board soliciting some help on ideas/techniques for sturgeon and I am sure you will get some help.
