try trolling a lunkerhunt bento swimmer with a weighted swimbait hook 1/8 oz to 1/4 oz. paddle slowly or drift as much a possible.

Will try that on my next session.

From my experience halibut in the bay is best during spring and summer, this time of year there isn't much there besides the occasional shark or ray. North Bay is supposed to be teeming with stripers right now, however, so if you can drive there you should have a good shot at those. Also, I don't think there is much fishing in Alameda Creek, if you want to catch trout chabot is great.

I think fishing Alameda is your "problem," not your fishng skill. If you want action, why not troll for trout, or  jig for rockfish?

I googled it and the closest near me for trout fishing is Alameda Creek.  Is that the best spot for trout?

Also,  I donít know most of the fishing spots here but Alameda is mostly sand or mud, what place do you have in mind for rockfish thatís near?

Thank you!

Shadow Cliffs is ez for trout.

Go to Monterey or up north to Timber Cove, Fort Bragg, etc for Lingcod/Rockfish action.
