Took our new to us Seafarer out last Thursday in the San Francisco bay. My son and I were doing some upgrades on the boat after we bought it and finally got out for a day. The weather was hot (mid 80's by the afternoon) and the bay was calm with almost no wind. After picking up live bait in San Francisco we headed to Berkeley Flat, after about 15 minutes we moved to the rock wall in Alameda , nothing :(. So we moved to the North side of TI and it didn't take long, I hooked up a nice 26" butt. We were fishing in 22-27' of water and the temp was about 61 degrees. We ended the day at about 1230 with limits. All in all it was a great day.IMG_5876.jpeg

Miss fishing in the bay. Had a smaller boat I kept up at Loch Lomand Marina in San Rafael.
Used to mostly go for Sturgies n Strippers.
Leopard sharks too.
Nice fish!

nothing like a fresh piece of Halibut dressed with a mango relish on a hot night....
