We finished up the day with 85 keepers between bass and Halibut.
I’m leaving the bay tomorrow to do salmon but we will still be offering up bass and Halibut trips as long as the counts stay high. Also I will be mixing in some rockfish along the coast when the weather is flat. Island trips start up sometime in August.

Final count

48 striped bass (24 limits)
37 Halibut

For reservations


The California Dawn operates out of Berkeley Marina. We are the the only boat in the bay area with a hot galley. If you would like to go fishing with us please call (510) 417-5557. For more information please visit our website
