Bailey Johnson of Sacramento caught this 29.5 pound halibut. Quite a few others were taken from the bar the past few days, although it slowed today for the fishermen. The divers got their fish, so the fish are still there. A few salmon from Bird again, a few more from Ten Mile, but word today is that the best bite is off of Bodega Head. Unfortunately, so is an MPA, so know your location relative to it. I hear that there is more than a few boats over the line. I recommend not going there. For those not in the know I've included a map. Red means no fishing and blue means you can fish for salmon. The closed waypoints are:
