The water temperature on the bar has dropped to 51 degrees, so that may not be the ticket after all. One halibut landed so far today from off the day beach but the water is getting sloppy.

The bite at Jenner died but there are still a few salmon being caught off of Bird and in the outer bay. High boat that I spoke with had 4 salmon from the esteros. Halibut at Hog and the bar, the bar having slightly better numbers coming in. The wind has been coming up in the afternoon so go early.

It was slow today. Very slow. 3 halibut and 4 salmon that I heard of. I guess the wind screwed things up worse than I'd hoped. It took a few days to recover last time, so, with luck, we'll be back in the fish by Sunday.

Nice fish, Tracy.
