The world record weight is 85 lbs. Barracudas can be found in huge schools of several thousand. The nature, timing, and location of spawning in the Great Barracudas has never been documented.
The Caroline returned with 18 ling cod and limits of rockfish for 13 anglers while fishing local waters. They have some limited room in the upcoming week.
While there were a few kings caught here and there last week, salmon fishing remained somewhat slow according to Todd Fraser from Bayside Marine.
One thing always stays the same for fishing in the Monterey Bay and that is, every year is different. Some are slow for certain species while other years are very productive. It is looking to be one of those years for halibut a good one.
Dozens of shaker-size halibut in calm waters have been caught near shore at wharf and on the inside corner near New Brighton Beach. Pier anglers have been catching and releasing one after the other from the Santa Cruz Municipal Wharf.
Once in a while, a legal -sized fish comes over the rail in the 22 inch range.
Bring a round ring crab net on a long rope for securing the fish and lifting to the wharf. Or, make friends with one of the old guys there who has a ring net.
You can winch up a inch halibut with your fishing rod, but a inch flatty is most likely to flip off the hook or break the line. While fewer and farther between, an increasing number of halibut are falling prey to anglers using the bounce-ball trolling technique as well as by those drifting bait.
The bounce-ballers often use a dodger or flasher in front of a hoochie or hooked anchovy, while drifters can find success using whole squid, anchovy and herring. Live bait fish is always the best if you can jig some up. There are still tons of tiny anchovies in the shallows near the Santa Cruz Wharf and an increasing number of mackerel, smelt and sardines in slightly deeper water.
A new swell hit the bay on Wednesday, and fishing has slowed as a result. Rockfish and lingcod are hungry, though anglers may need to target the deeper reefs to find bigger fish and bigger schools. The fresh squid has been the trick for the high ling counts.
We will be out on a salmon trip on Monday, and I think these were the fish that were off of the San Mateo coastline earlier in the week.
We are going out on the Check Mate with a good crew of experienced fishermen on Monday and also running trips on Tuesday and Wednesday. Tom had lots of room this week. On Wednesday, the Check Mate went south to Sur for 28 limits of ling cod to 25 pounds with a number of lings over 15 pounds to go with rockfish.
Being able to fish 10 more fathoms has really opened up the opportunity for big ling cod. Salmon fishing has been very good near the Soquel Hole and Pajaro with the fish on top. There have been skiffs that have brought in limits of quality fish, but they bit after a few days of northwest winds.
The coming south wind will scatter out the fish, and we will have to go find them again. There is so much bait out in the bay that you will have to watch our whale trip from today with the humpbacks bubble-feeding on the bait.
And, that means seasons are open and we can do some real fishing! Hopes were high but conditions less than ideal as boats headed out on the Monterey Bay in search of king salmon and cod.
Wind waves from the east and a large swell coming from the northwest made for bumpy conditions. General consensus is that opening day was rather slow for both salmon and cod at the usual springtime Monterey Bay: General consensus is that opening day was rather slow for both salmon and cod at the usual springtime locations.
Salmon anglers averaged zero to three fish per boat on Saturday. A few boats claimed limits as anglers zeroed in on the more productive areas. The salmon seem to be scattered across the bay, with catches reported near Marina, Moss, the Pajaro area and near the Soquel Hole.
Jim Russell from Watsonville joined friends on the vessel PortoBello launching from Monterey for the opener. They scored three fish up to 34 inches and enjoyed fresh caught wild king salmon for dinner on Saturday. As the week progressed fishing got much better.
Tuesday Wednesday and Thursday reports indicated fairly good salmon fishing, especially for those who made it out to the grounds early for first light. While the Soquel Hole produced a few reported catches, and at least one boater caught fish of the cost north of Santa Cruz, the best action was centered on the Pajaro Hole area and the shallower flats between Pajaro and Soquel Holes.
The salmon bite started picking up on Tuesday and got better as the week progressed. There were early limits caught at the Slide in feet of water.
The majority of the bites were early in the morning and up high in the water column. The salmon were all of a size, pounds, and a couple were very hard fighters.Barracuda Information & Pictures Ê: Você não deveria estar vendo isso!
