These dapper gentlemen caught these two nice salmon today. Mike Mayry and Joe Downing hooked them off of the Trees, as I recall.
Enzo Buckenmeyer is working on becoming as good a fisherman as his father and he seems to be doing a pretty good job. After carrying in these fish he even smelled like a fisherman.
Tanner Johnson caught this 21.5 pound halibut off of Bird Rock on a hootchy. Normally that would be a salmon report, but the halibut have been caught in some odd places and ways this year. I know of a couple of halibut that were caught in 90 feet of water recently, one on the troll yesterday. I guess the warm water lets them venture out a bit further. There was a better salmon bite today with a fresh influx of fish from offshore(?) coming in. Some of them had empty bellies but still had krill juice oozing out of their vents. They're still coming in to eat those calamari. Hog Island slowed a bit for the halibut guys but there were still fish taken. There was a radio report of a yellowtail being caught off of Tomales Point on a live squid. There were four yellowtail caught out of Shelter Cove yesterday(as well as six albacore), so this fish may have actually happened. If you know any more about it I'd love to hear the story.
