Eureka waters call the shots

Eureka Coast - Eureka, CA (Humboldt County)

by Kenny Priest

“It looks like the ocean might lie down enough Friday and Saturday for a trip to the Cape or to drift for halibut,” reports Tim Klassen of Reel Steel Sport Fishing. “The ocean was flat on Tuesday and at least one Pacific halibut was caught north of the entrance in 300 feet of water,” added Klassen. The California halibut are still biting inside the bay, with boats fishing the western channel north of Woodley Island catching a couple keepers per outing.
