Fishin’ That Half Moon Bay Jetty

Was going to go out and fish with some NCKA guys around 2pm on Sunday, but something came up that I had to take care of…wound up not being free until 3:30 and was too late to go running off after them…

So I decided to just hit up the jetty and scope it out.  Haven’t been on the south jetty in months and months, figured it would be good to revisit it and brush up on my spots.
Here’s a quick video covering how to hook bait when going for eels.

Quick ‘n Dirty HMB Update

Hit up the half moon bay/pillar point harbor jetty last night (5/7/2013). Bait was shrimp, went with a carolina rig. 1/2oz – 1oz. Water was like glass, but had to use one of my stiffer poles due to some reel problems. Hook was a 5/0 circle hook.

Size is definitely down, but the numbers are doing okay. Not as bad as I thought before, but not great. Two biggest fish were <10″ and skinny. Both grassies.

HMB Jetty Fishing Bulk Post!

Been out fishing the half moon bay jetties three or four times. Only have pictures from two trips, other trips was busy/lazy.

Lost my glasses on one trip too :[ Right under the 51 marker on the south jetty, harbor side. A fly attacked my face, I shook my head, and my glasses went flying…Turns out they sink pretty damn fast T.T Tried for 10-15 minutes to hook it, but couldn’t find it at the bottom. qq
So we have this running joke that I give blood tributes to the jetty in exchange for a plethora of fish. Basically I get cut/hurt/bleed just about every time we go out fishing, so its become tradition. We also noticed that after I start bleeding the fishing picks up. Also there is a direct correlation in amount of blood lost to amount of fish caught…

Anyways! in exchange for my glasses (200+$…I pulled out all the stops since I figured I’d have it for years…just bought it 2 months ago T.T) I pulled up a cabezon minutes later. A 13″ cabezon. I have never been stricken by a want to poach so badly in my life. Dear gawd. $200 for an undersized cabezon…TO LOOK AT? VERY FUNNY JETTY. Here’s the cabezon that almost didn’t get away :
