Woodley Island Docks Quiet

Eureka Coast - Eureka, CA (Humboldt County)

by Kenny Priest

For the first time in years, the docks at Woodley Island are actually quiet. With salmon and halibut closed until next Thursday, it’s been Cape Mendocino or nothing for the Eureka fleet. Captain Tim Klassen of the Reel Steel Sport Fishing was amongst the boats that fished south last weekend and said, “The fishing is really good as usual. There’s some really quality ling cod around, we landed four over 20 pounds on Sunday.” There’s been talk of tuna out of Eureka, but according to Klassen, the water is still about 70 miles southwest of Eureka. “With all the fog, it’s been tough to get a good terrafin shot. We’ll need some southerly wind and calm seas before it’s doable.”
