Gonna be taking my old bass canoe to NPH tomorrow and have a little bass tourny with the pops. Its been quite sometime since we've fished the harbor, so I was wondering if anybody knows where the hot spots are and some pointers?

3 inch big hammer with unibutter, just about any color works fine with me. Try to get there early, thats when I catch most of my fish. Remember to CPR- Capture Picture Release. Good luck!

You can launch at the coast guard station. Just do a google search for the address then got to google maps. Get there early so you can get a spot especially on the weekends. It is close to the bait barge. You can try fishing at pirates cove which is close to the bait barge. It is good for halibut. Also try the docks for the bass. Any dock usually has the bass on them.

So we went today.... I got 6 spottys, 2 sandys, and 1 LEGAL halibut. Got the hali literally on my 2nd cast. Pops got 3 spottys, 1 sandy, a yellowfin croaker, and hooked onto something huge that almost spooled him! Too light of line.... Oh well, it was a pretty good day.

Sounds like a good time!!! Congrats on the legal halibut. I need to get out there and rent a skiff again with my 2 sons. We always catch fish and have a good time too.

Nice job! Where'd you end up launching?

The big-un was undoubtedly a big bat ray...you can sight cast plastics to them in the shallows on light line if you like to torture yourself.
