Guided Tours – Half Moon Bay Poke Poling

So I guess I do guided tours & trips now.  Last Saturday was my first time taking non-friends out on an official tour.  I’ve wrestled with the idea in the past, and decided to push it aside for the longest time.  Finally went out and did my first official one this past weekend (non-friend group).  Jonas contacted me asking if I could take him & his family out poke poling.

Gave it some thought, liked that he was bringing his kids out, and decided I’d give it a shot.  It went pretty smoothly considering there were a total of 7 people, 5 of which were kids.  So I guess that passed my test, and I’m open to taking more groups out there, though I need to hash out some details first (group size, gear rental if necessary, etc).  For those of you interested, please head over to the jetty tours page where you can find all the details (once I’m done building it out).  Do note that what I teach is a variation on the traditional poke poling.  I use a normal rod/reel set up (20lb+ mono) which allows me more flexibility.

Anyhow!  Here’s some pics from the trip:

And here’s some of the very little video I got during the trip:

We were out on the north jetty at Half Moon Bay from 8am – 1pm.  I think 2-3 eels were caught, 4+ rock cod (grass, black and yellow, etc), and a bunch of crabs latching onto the squid strips we used as bait.  Book your trip today and learn first hand how to catch an eel, rock cod, and why they hide in the caves/holes they do!
