Went out 7/20/2014 with Calvin & Glen on the Queen of Hearts out of Pillar Point Harbor (Half Moon Bay). The quick & dirty? We limited out, but 50% of the fish could fit in your hand, and more like 75% of the fish were black & blue rock cod. Get the title yet? Ankeny Street and Tigerfish still rule this guys heart!
These fish were on the large size. And only 4 lings caught that day for 20+ people. The whole reason we wound up going was that I called the day before & asked what their scores were like Saturday. Apparently they managed 36 lings for 24 people. Amazing! Unfortunately we didn’t have a repeat performance.
Calvin was using a generic dropper loop rig with 8-10oz weights. Glen used a mix of those and the ones with plastic squids on them as well. Also used whole fresh squid (they caught some recently and had it to share with the patrons. Massive props for that!). I was using a generic bala/ho d jig (4oz).
“But dennis, you’ve been gone so long and you open with that? You should feel ASHAMED!”
Okay maybe. But I still think its kind of funny. Anyhow! I was on the Tigerfish out of Emeryville this weekend, and we fished the northern San Francisco Bay for halibut & stripers. Had a great time with Capt. Allen, his deckhand Matt, and the rest of the party. I got a lot of video too! You can find it below, or a link to the playlist at the end of this post.
Really behind on posting. Went out on a salmon trip, and would never go on the lovely martha out of Fishermans Wharf in SF again. I’d suggest the Tigerfish out of emeryville/hmb for salmon, rock cod, and anything else they do.
Also went out with some NCKA peeps, did decently. I think I haven’t posted about last time I was out on the hmb jetty also, bah. Just been really busy lately, I’ll update soon!
As promised, here’s the report for our ocean trip 23 miles off the San Francisco coast to the Farallon Islands, legendary place for rock cod fishing. Or so I’ve been told. This trip came right after we got home from vacation, was a bit rough. It was my brother, my mom, Kara and her husband Josh, and me. Have you met my brother?
