Salmon Bite Off Marin Coast
Local Rockfish and Lings Best Bet

Half Moon Bay:
Rockfishing remained solid on Sunday 10-26 with the Ankeny Street returning with 17 limits of mostly school rockfish and a ling in rough weather conditions with strong northwest winds. There was a hardcore group of fishermen on the boat that were able to stand the rough seas and big bumpy swell.
In Pacifica, Marque Grissom of Coastside II Bait and Tackle reported kingfish, perch, and jack smelt are providing the action with the shortage of striped bass along the coastline. They are gearing up for Saturday’s Dungeness crab opener with anglers expected to line shoulder-to-shoulder on the pier.

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.
