San Francisco Halibut, Rockfish and Salmon fishing report 7/7/13

Hey sportsman,

I'm sorry I have been off the grid but I have been very very busy. I get up at 4:15 am, feed the horses and head to the boat. Then I get home between 7 and 8 o'clock pm and try to return as many calls and emails as I can before it gets too late. So forgive me for not keeping up with the reports. I will try harder! Here we go.

All my trips for the last 10 days in a row have been pretty much up the coast limit style rock fishing, scratching up some halibut and lingcod here and there, occasionally we get a big surprise like a large 6 pound black rock fish or a big vermilion. It has been steady action when the weather allows. I have had lingcod up to 19 lbs. I just found some halibut, finally! I have not been able to fish them the last 2 days due to weather but tomorrow we may get to get on them. We've also have been doing some shark trips and shark fishing is been very good. Just about all my shark trips are catch release, take a good photo and let the fish live to fight another day. The salmon are still very far out but they are up north, down south, near the islands and working there way here. There are a lot of salmon and a lot of big ones. It will not be long until they are here and then Yaaah Hooo!!! I have added a lot of photos to the Summer 2013 album. You can get to the album through my 2nd web site. We are still working on the link for the 1st web site. I will also attach some photos. Enjoy!
