Salmon season was the best I have seen in 7 years out of Eureka!! 8 days of fishing for Lost Coast Sport Fishing In the season of May and we had our boat limits every day. That means we were getting the captain’s limit as well!
Now we have our hooks deep into the California and pacific halibut seen, as well as the lingcod and rockfish. Fishing for the pacific halibut has been excellent, it has also been trying as well. The most prolific black cod abundance on the halibut grounds complicate things. WE are chewing through bait 10 times faster than a regular day. Hopefully they swim somewhere else but I’m skeptical due to the shear volume from the Cape of Mendocino to Trinidad. That being said we and the crew are still grateful for boat limits, even if it takes some elbow grease to make it happen.
The month of May can be known for unpredictable weather. This May has been no different! I have fished 7 days in May as of the 27th due to weather conditions, that being said, all 7 days we have got our limit of Salmon for the boat!! I don’t know if I have ever caught 10-14 Salmon for boat limits that many times back to back. Yesterday we got limits of rockfish and salmon, the crew was extra STOKED!!
We have a few fishable days left in May and I hope to repeat what I’ve been doing. We are taking reservations for Pacific Halibut, California Halibut, Rockfish, Lingcod, Albacore and Salmon when it reopens in August. I hope to see you on the water.
We are waiting for some mellow weather at the moment in Northern California!! This 20 to 40 mile an hour near shore and off shore forecast will not get us anywhere. Fortunately we have a break in the weather starting Monday May 8th. We will be on the water and fishing for Salmon and Halibut as well. Stay tuned for our weekly report and feel free to contact us anytime for more information.
Here we go… WE are taking reservations for the 2022 ocean season for Salmon, California and Pacific Halibut, Lingcod and Rockfish! Starting May first we will be chase one or two of these species out of Eureka or Trinidad ports. We will fish were ever the fishing or ocean conditions are best. The sings are looking great as of now for good ocean conditions, so stay tuned in for a weekly fishing report and feel free to call, text or send a message for more details or just to say hello.
Unfortunately the 2022 winter steelhead season seams to be coming to an end! I wish it wasn’t so but with no rain in site, river mouths sanding in like its August or September and too much seal pressure at these shallow river mouths, it looks like its the end. Fishing the past two weeks has been hit or miss depending on the river. One day we will hook 3-5 adults and the next scratching for a bite.
At this point in time we will still be taking reservations for any steelhead opportunities left in the season, but we are turning our sites and reservations to the ocean season that opens in May. We are taking reservations for the 2022 salmon, rockfish, lingcod, pacific halibut, California halibut and albacore tuna season. Feel free to call or send a message for more details.
