A brutally slow salmon and halibut day today. The best I heard was a couple of salmon lost. The rockfish were even slow off of Bird. There was a decent lingcod and rockfish bite at Point Reyes where Steve Towne landed a 21 pound ling to cap off four limits on the boat. The reefs off of Ten Mile had a better rockfish bite with some nice vermilions mixed in with the schoolies. The best halibut bite is by Hog, but it isn't that good. Even catching bait is tough. The good forecast this week could mean the water may be able to warm up and maybe get some color to it. Hopefully that will happen and kick things loose.
