Half Moon Bay

Rating - Good   

Tuesday, Oct 12 2021
Rockfishing has been the story of the past several months out of Half Moon Bay, and it seems like it will remain the story until the tentative opener of the recreational Dungeness crab season on November 6th. The announcement regarding the opening of the recreational season will occur on November 1st after a whale assessment on October 26/27th. With the Huli Cat headed north to its new home in Fort Bragg, the Queen of Hearts out of Half Moon Bay Sport Fishing along with the New Captain Pete will be the two large party boats offering the very popular crab combination. The Queen of Hearts was out on Saturday with 10 anglers for limits of coastal rockfish along with a solitary ling cod while the Ankeny Street worked the coastal reefs earlier in the week for 14 limits of rockfish including two cabezon along with 12 ling cod.
