When someone calls in to the shop on the VHF and asks what the limit is on white sea bass, I'm not sure whether to answer him honestly or just call him the names running through my head. Apparently, right now Herb Hansen is somewhere on Ten Mile with a sea bass on board and another hooked. The beach produced only halibut for the boats that tried the past couple of days, although a few salmon were hooked and lost. The bar and the bay had a few halibut over the weekend, but not as many as earlier in the week. There's been at least one caught today, so far. Yesterday a couple of the local divers tried for abalone on Tomales Point and found a lot of empty cracks and crevices but only two keepers. Apparently the red tide affected the abs here as well.
