Tomales bay has been pretty good for halibut over the past month. Here is a quick guide i put
together for those that would like to give this place a try or even in the future. I'll add this to the NCKA
repository of fishing knowledge.

Question for Hojo:
How many rods are you allowed to fish with in Tomales bay for halibut? I know SF and San Pablo bay have
rod restrictions (which no one abides by :smt011), Any clarification or link to past post would be helpful. Thanks.-LA

I believe Tomales is considered open ocean (not inland), so you can use multiple rods for butts.

As many as you want, unless you're targeting fish with specific gear restrictions. It is considered ocean waters.

of the Ocean and San Francisco Bay, as
described herein. The Ocean is the open seas
adjacent to the coast and islands and the waters
of open or enclosed bays contiguous to the

west of Elkhorn Road between Castroville and
Watsonville.

Except as provided in this article, fin fish may
be taken only on hook-and-line or by hand. Any
number of hooks and lines may be used in all
ocean waters and bays except:

Yep multiple rods. Sometimes multiple hook ups :smt001
If the ocean was whiskey and I was a duck I'd swim to the bottom and never come up.
