    Good fishing guys take the biggest gear you have and 80-130 floro leader it's expensive but you don't need much 10 ' at the most. And if you don't have the biggest gear chase them with the boat. I'll keep cheering you on.... hopefully I'll get out there soon damn boat is driving me crazy.

    I fished Friday and Sunday. Fished from The fingers at Davenport east to the hole. Never metered much of anything, nor did I get bit. Found birds working but not much bait in the area where I was. Trolled rapala's and crystal minnows on the wire and had a popper set way back. Talked with a few other boats and they expressed the same results. Not saying they are gone but I couldn't find em. Covered 70 miles in 2 day working the canyons, fingers, and in to 200'. Dopped flat falls on a few meter marks and caught salmon:(

    Thanks for the report.
    It was hard not to pull the boat out and head down but I figured they would be long gone by the time I got there, sounds like I made the right decision.
    At least you got some good Salmon to take home.
    My fingers are crossed that they make it up to Bodega area!

    Shit, maybe they did move up the line. Cordell and behind the farallons have
    a good shot at holding them.

    47/52. Between 4-5 miles out in the Canyon. We launched at ML. We caught Mack’s, Smelt, anchovies and Sardines. The Mack’s and smelt were caught just outside all the bait that was seen all over the surface. It looked like something was feeding a few times we could see some kind of fish going across the surface. Couldn’t get a close enough look to see what it was. Water is now 61 which may explain why not many Salmon are being caught. Will report back next trip pending weather!

    We saw the same surface activity with bird schools working and it turned out to be a few mega schools of 12"-20" macks. They were busting bait just like tuna would and we thought we found the mother load. I also thought we saw a school of bonito busting but ended up being macks as well.
