The Goldeneye 2000 with Captain Quang in the wheelhouse has been focused primarily on halibut and bass drifting within the bay with excellent results , but they also ran out to the island in search of big rockfish and lingcod . The bottom fish action has been excellent producing limits of rockfish and some dandy lings that range up to 20 pounds .

SALTWATER

BODEGA BAY - Salmon fishing is breaking out in Bodega Bay , and there have been some impressive counts displayed at the end of June into the beginning of July . Rockfishing remains tremendous both north and south of the harbor , and as July progresses , the salmon will be moving closer to the shorelines .
Captain Rick Powers of Bodega Bay Sport Fishing and the New Sea Angler said , “ I think salmon fishing will only get better and better as we are finding salmon on krill
in 42 fathoms . On Wednesday , July 5th , we took a combination trip with 14 anglers to 22 salmon to 22 pounds , 6 lingcod to 13 pounds , and 110 rockfish . We took another combination trip the next day with 26 fishermen for 8 salmon to 27 pounds along with full limits of assorted rockfish and 13 lings to 12 pounds .
“ Earlier in the week , we worked Point Reyes for 33 limits of lingcod to 20 pounds along with near-limits of rockfish consisting of all of the bottomgrabbers : copper , chinas , vermilions , browns , and quillbacks ,” he stated . “ We are working for the rockfish in the morning before changing over for salmon . This has been good combo fishing , and I am looking forward to the salmon action this month . We went north to Fort Ross on Sunday for 29 lings and limits of rockfish for nearly 30 fishermen .
July is generally go-time for Bodega Bay salmon as the schools will move into the coastline before turning the corner towards San Francisco Bay and the Sacramento River .

HALF MOON BAY
King Salmon Action Explodes North Of Harbor
EL GRANADA - Salmon fishing broke out north of the harbor within the past week , and the party boats are finding solid action for both salmon and rockfish .
Out of Half Moon Bay Sport Fishing , the Queen of Hearts and Riptide have been focusing on rockfishing , and the Riptide brought in 17 limits of rockfish and 6 lings on Saturday with the Queen scoring ½ limits of rockfish and 14 lings to 16 pounds . The top locations for rockfish have been the recently-opened waters of the Deep Reef along with Pescadero and Pigeon Point . Captain Dennis Baxter of the New Captain Pete said , “ All you have to do is produce salmon , and people will come out of the woodwork . There are salmon showing up from Pedro Point to Thornton Beach , and also outside of our harbor inside of the Green Buoys and along both sides of the reefs . Private boaters and even kayaks in Hobie fishing kayaks are finding action outside of the reef since a wall of bait has been showing up .”
“ Trolling has been working better than mooching , but there are private boats
