There are still a few Dungeness around. A boater yesterday caught six with three pots on a half-hour soak across the bay. The pier has had about two to six a day getting landed. The outer bay is a bit better in spots. The most consistent reports are from Ten Mile Beach where there are limits coming in from strings of pots soaking for a week or more. No surfperch or leopard shark reports. Abalone season is just over a month away, but some people can't wait. Fish and Game has busted Qiong Wang of San Francisco for taking abalone three time in 17 days. While out on bail he was arrested with 55 abalone. I'm not sure if this is a testament to Mr. Wang's persistence or his (seemingly justified) belief that he'll get away with it.
