My SF Bay fishing has been… off. Don’t know why. I don’t claim to understand the habits, patterns or ways of the stripers that sometimes, in theory, are in these waters.
This morning I did a little dawn patrol fishing. Falling tide, not much wind, a few people out. Pelicans were out, which seemed a good sign.
No love though… just casting and retrieving and repeating the whole thing. Just when I figured there were no fish in the whole bay there was a splash just 50 feet away.
Now, here in the Bay, if you see a splash it is one of two things… a halibut or a ray. I figured it was probably a halibut and the first cast I put in was grabbed immediately.
Very kind of the fish to show me where it was. Down right cooperative.
