Safety First / Re: Not smart bordering on dumb.

I dont see anything bad about it except for the fact that they didn't bring and an extra 5 gallons of gas.  Heck, I have been 9 miles offshore in my kayak.  Along as you have your life vests and other safety gear like a radio and compass, I dont see anything wrong with it.  On a flat day, I would go 20 miles if I knew I had enough gas.

I cant login nor do I get an email to reset my password or the resend confirmation instructions.

Success in crappy conditions for everyone it sounds like.  Couldnt ask for better results besides better conditions.  The bigger fish are moving in and ofcourse I'm out of town.  I would have been there if I wasn't out having a blast seeing great live music.

Good report. Congrats on a successful trip

Welcome.  I live up on Humboldt Hill as does another famous NCKA fisherman

Both salmon and pacific halibut will be open! :hello2:

Highly doubt it.  We will be lucky if Pacific halibut last til August.  The quota is going to fill up by July

Commercial pots are bigger than that.  I used to fish one or 2 of those off my Hobie Outback.

Be ready for some yard sales at the launch.  See yall Thursday night.

I'm in

I talked to a guy here in Humboldt bay and he used the Storm anchovy to match the same size chovies around and said he bounces violently off the bottom and get lots of bites.

Jared at Cmon sportfishing can put you on the halibut too, but for an almost for sure thing , then I would go with Full Throttle, Reel Steel or Coastline out of Eureka.  If you feel like your ready to try from a kayak.  Look me up on Facebook or here.

If there is an extra spot with Gary on Full throttle I'll fill it if needed

Hookups and Fishing Reports (Viewable by Public) / Re: HKUP ARW 4/21
« on: April 21, 2018, 07:11:56 PM »
Fished from 8:00 until 2:30.  Ended up with five shakers up to 20" and one striper, all caught between 11 and 1.  Had a few more misses and eventually ran out of anchovies, after which I switched to herring with no luck.  A guy on the wall caught a 30"+ halibut on jack smelt as I was coming in.  Baitfish were everywhere, maybe next time will bring a sabiki rig. Enjoyed the good weather and meeting a few NCKA members.

Always bring a sabiki or castnet.  90% of the time I go calibut fishing, I dont bring any bait cause live bait and baits bigger than a little chovie are my preferred choice to keep the shakers off.

General Fishing Tips / Re: Recommended Landing Net for Halibut
« on: April 21, 2018, 01:29:06 PM »
Dont net it if your aren't 100% sure it's a keeper and you are going to keep it.  I dont keep em under 25/26" so I just release in the water, but the mutu light wire circle hook catches them in the hard part of the mouth and makes it easy to land by hand to release.

you can only use 2 hooks in the bay
I could be wrong but I think it is 3 hook max in sf bay.  That is why we cut our sabikis down to three.
3 hooks is legal in the Bay

I like a 2-6oz banana weight depending on drift or troll with a 4ft leader and a single mutu light wire circle hook from #1-2/0 depending on the size of the bait.  I also run a sliding bullet sinker from 2-4oz with a 4ft leader sometimes too.

Catch someshiner perch with a castnet or saiki.  They are real hardy and stay alive a long time.

General Talk / Re: Woodpeckers eating my Birch trees
« on: April 12, 2018, 03:28:44 PM »
There is a woodpecker in our neighborhood that like DirectTV satellite dishes.  It took me awhile to figure out that it wasn't a power tool but a Woodpecker pecking on a satellite dish.

I guess it's common cause there are a few videos on YouTube
