Halibut season has now started. I know this because they are biting, never mind the cold water. Two were taken near Marshall on Saturday and three were caught in 90 minutes near Hog Island today. The fish I saw looked to be 8-10 pounders. There are even a few dungeness around. On Friday one skilled angler caught his limit of ten from the pier. Surfperch fishing is very slow. On this end of the bay the leopard shark fishing has been slow as well. At least the flatties are biting.
