Eureka

Rating - Good   

Friday, May 17 2019
With the changing ocean conditions the bite has been inconsistent. Boats are having a tough time finding a consistent area of holding fish when targeting halibut. The best bite has been straight out on the 48 line between 250 to 300 feet. Rock fish action at the cape has been steady but not spectacular. Boats are getting limits of Rockfish and Lingcod and it has been a good variety of fish. The upcoming weather forecast does not look promising with a series of storms coming in but hopefully early next week boats will be able to get back out on the fishing grounds.

Access Info

The California halibut bite went wild in the northern portion of Humboldt Bay and drifting live bait has been the hot technique. Finally over the weekend the weather calmed and boats could make the run to Cape Mendocino where they found famished lings and rockfish that bit like maniacs. Jetty and beach fishing was good for perch, cabezon, kelp greenling, rockfish and lingcod.
