Catch Report 8/8/2019

Perfect weather for fishing here in Shelter Cove and the Lost Coast. Winds are light and water is glassy for a couple more days.

The California Halibut are still biting in close along the shore, around the moorings and some bigger ones are being caught just past the rocks in-front of the light-house.

Salmon are still being caught, but it has been slow and not much size this season. Rockfish always a good bet. A few boats went north the other day and found a few Pacific Halibut.

But most are now focused on Albacore! Many boats went out about 25 miles off shore and found tuna. Most boats were getting in the teens and twenties, with the size averaging 12 lbs. Those who traveled south towards Fort Bragg waters did best. North was good, and the middle was a slow grind, but fish were found everywhere. Water got up to a balmy 66 degrees F, but only few fish were caught close to the break.
