Tom and Terry Brodsky of Newcastle showing off the new biggest fish on the big fish board, a 33 pound salmon.
Steve Martin of Rohnert Park with the number 2 ranked salmon, a 32 pounder.
Steve Towne of Dillon Beach with his 22# halibut. Steve's boat returned with 3 salmon , 16 to 20 pounds, and 6 halibut, 10 to 22 pounds, all from Ten Mile. Mr. Towne trolled the length of the beach yesterday after the Bird Rock bite fizzled. There were salmon caught around Bird yesterday but not nearly as many as last weekend. Some salmon were caught on the bar yesterday but be forewarned, there are more thresher sharks there than salmon. One boat hooked four there yesterday and another had two on and off. At least one fisherman will be returning with "wire leaders and a 50-wide." Some wind forecast for the weekend but with luck it will stay offshore and let us fish.
