The past couple of days were windy offshore with a large, close swell. Most folks avoided going out. Not being most folks, I went out yesterday and caught two salmon in front of Estero Americano. I heard of one other caught in the area. There were some boats that tried the bar and back by Hog Island for halibut but the cold clear water glued the halibut's mouths shut. For the shark fishermen out there, there's quite a few thresher sharks out in the outer bay. My boys lost a 10'+ thresher yesterday and several others have been lost or released in the last couple of weeks. At least one halibut diver had a bit of a scare when a big thresher swam past him on the bar.
