Salmon Bite Off Marin Coast
Local Rockfish and Lings Best Bet

Half Moon Bay:
Dennis Baxter of the New Captain Pete went north to Rocky Point on Saturday 10-11 for 5 big salmon for 9 anglers with several lost opportunities. He said, “The guys fought the fish well, but there were a few 25-pound range fish that came unbuttoned at the side of the boat,” adding, “It just wasn’t our day.” The Pedro Point salmon bite went belly up in the middle of the week, and it is over until the next school of salmon moves up the coast. There is a paucity of bait outside of the Pillar Point harbor, and the water is green with no salmon reported locally on Sunday although at least a few boats have been trolling at the mouth of the harbor on a daily basis. The salmon inside the harbor are schooling up in the mornings near the kayak rental station, and the occasional fish is taken from the shoreline on a firetiger spinner. The swell was large on Sunday, and Baxter was called by a few photographers to take them out to photograph the surfers at Mavericks. It was 11 feet every 17 seconds for Baxter on Sunday morning during his bird trip

Dennis Baxter of the New Captain Pete has been fishing commercially for salmon over the past few days, but he will be running an open load salmon trip on Saturday morning with the boat opening up at 4:45 a.m. and leaving at 6:00 a.m. He reported on Thursday 10-9 there has been a solid salmon bite up the coast at Mussel Rock. The salmon are thick in the harbor, and they are swarming on the surface in the morning near the kayak rental place. Large spinners like Blue Foxes are picking up the occasional salmon who is taking the lure in the mouth. Baxter said, “One angler picked up a legal limit of salmon with the lures, but the game warden is very vigilant, seeking those who are attempting to snag the fish.” He added, “The Queen of Hearts found good ling cod action down the coast on Friday with even crew limits of lings.” The rockfish bite was a bit slow, but they were able to scratch out limits.
