That's because Monterey boats are moochers. There havent been any real big bait balls and concentrations of fish. You're better off going out on a six pack and trolling. That is how to catch salmon in Monterey.

Bayside is FAMOUS for Exaggerating the fish scores to promote business...call the Monterey Sport Fishing Party Boat Landings...there were NO 20 lbers...put the crack pipe DOWN!!!
Could you speak up a little? When you talk out your ass like that it comes out all garbled and hard to understand.

There's PLENTY of Salmon out there this year, seen some big ones too.
But I guess we should listen to a guy from San Francisco who calls Monterey to get the "inside info" on fish out of Santa Cruz

If you consider most vessels getting SKUNKED & LESS than a fish per rod...as in your impotent classification of "PLENTY"...then your parameters have sunken to depths comparable to the Marianas Trench....which I'm SURE you will have to goggle to understand the analogy ....probably have to also Google "analogy"

Ahab,

How about a Moby Dick analogy. Maybe you should ditch the Pequod and you might finally catch that beast. Or just give up and save face.

I and all of my friends are killing it. White whales everyday. Limits and Limits.

If you consider "Killing It"....two 10lbers for 12 hours of fishing as per YOUR REPORT...

Then you ALSO need to reconsider your impotent definition of "Killing It"... the only thing you kill is the over abundance of rats in your backyard!!!!

You think I post every fishing trip here on BD?

Maybe I post all my friends too?

If you think fishing sucks, stay home. That's fine with me.
