    Sounds to me like 37 folks got out of the house, away from chores, onto the water, wet some lines, and as a bonus took home some tasty critters. Is that really so bad?

    Certain landings have run Sand Dab specials for years. The first one I remember was on the “Pierpoint” years ago out of Pierpoint Landing. I even ran some in the ‘80’s out of 22nd Street. A hundred per person was not uncommon. Some restaurants serve them and they are pretty yummy and quite expensive.

    Yeah I don't know why people hate on them. It's more consistent than targeting halibut and bass this time of the year up north. In northern California they run these sand dab + crab trips and they're popular from what I hear; people in southern California have just been used to tuna and yellowtail being available most years, there's not much to target up north when bottom fishing is closed.

    I think they advertise these sanddab trips. So it's not a surprise to the anglers. Sand dabs are awesome eating! $25 a plate at a nice restaurant.

    The way to make them is Light breadcrumb/flour mix, sautée in olive oil. Then finish lemon butter caper sauce. Try it!

    We had them on the surface like that at Izor's in 95' last week with chopped squid one day and chunked fresh caught macs the next. No fish for sure....

    Sand dab fishing is an old winter time tradition for sure. Pops still loves to target them. Any kind of fishing is my kind of fishing.
