This trip was north to Fort Ross, but most of the time I have been heading south to Point Reyes. The loads have been light, but if you want to get in on some outstanding shallow-water rockfishing, now is the time since our loads will get much larger once we start running our salmon/rockfish/ling cod combination trips. We have been averaging from 1.5 to limits of ling cod along with consistent limits of rockfish,” said Powers. Second captain Josh Stevens of the Take Five out of North Bay Charters ran north to Timber Cove on Friday for limits of rockfish, but the big swell slowed down the lingcod action. Captain Eric Holthouse of North Bay Charters said, “We are running Wednesdays through Sunday on the boat and looking forward to the opening of the local salmon season. In addition to the Take Five, a Grady White, we will also be running out North River for halibut in Tomales Bay along with salmon trips.” Out of Lawson’s Landing, Willie Vogler reported, “ A 20-pound halibut was landed off of Marker 5 on Friday, and it is nice to see larger fish at the upper end of the bay. The surfperch bite has been good with the best action on the low tide instead of the normal good bite on high water. Crabbing remains slow as the crab are currently clutching.” MONTEREY BAY The Kahuna Is Back Fishing Rockfish, Lingcod and Halibut MOSS LANDING – The Kahuna is now booking rockfish and lingcod trips to Point Sur and Point Lopez, as well as halibut trips on Monterey Bay. “We made it!” said Carol Jones of Kahuna Sportfishing after the boat returned from the boatyard. “We’re all cleared to go. She’s a beauty with some healthy new engines!” On their first trip of 2018 on May 12, the Kahuna wasn’t able to make it down to Point Sur because of the windy weather. However, the anglers were able to fish inside Monterey Bay and ended up with full limits of yellowtail, copper, vermilion and gopher rockfish.
