A few halibut are showing on Ten Mile Beach now, as well as on the bar. Watch out for the swells, though, as they have been breaking out into 30 feet of water on occasion. Remember, you are there to fish, not surf. The rockfish are biting slow but steady. A couple will bite when you first drop on a new spot, then the bite tapers off. When they stop biting you are better off moving to a new place. It is easier to find a few hungry fish than to try to force stubborn fish to bite. Weather permitting, an albacore run is being planned for next week, probably Tuesday. And there are still lots of sardines south of Pelican Point.
