Salmon from west of Tomales Point yesterday, from 1 to 7 miles out. Yes, they were scattered. There was even a 27 pound king caught on the bar, even though the baitfish have mostly moved out. What bait is left is on top of the bar and in the channel. There was a pair of leopard sharks up to 54" taken from near Hog Island. There's a couple of boats looking to see if the halibut are still biting at McLures Beach today. The rockfish bite has been pretty good, not too many school fish but lots of browns and gophers. Lots of small lingcod in the shallows with a few legal ones mixed in.
