One salmon landed here today out of two boats trying. The boat without fish went through three trays of bait on shorties. I can't wait until July 6, when the size limit drops to 20". Until then, 24" is the rule. There is a large area of bait out off Tomales Point in 180 feet of water so the fish (such as they are) should hang around a little longer. Yesterday, according to one fisherman, the fish bit best at the turn of the tide. "I was hooking fish all day," he told me, "but when the tide turned everyone else started catching fish too." He finished the day with two 27" salmon.
