For the halibut divers, I hear that the halibut were on the bar on Sunday. The fishermen couldn't get them to bite though. No brown water yet. Some halibut were still biting on Ten Mile and McLures Beach, the biggest weighed here being a 23 pounder caught by Tom Treadway of Sacramento. The fish counter said that on Friday he checked 48 boats at Bodega Bay and counted 36 salmon. No white seabass yet but I heard a two more "I got spooled!" stories today. The spooling seems to be happening on the north part of Ten Mile. A 5 foot thresher shark was caught and released near Hog Island on Sunday.
