Humboldt’s Friday Fishing Report 8/12/2016
Rockfish – The Lingcod are prevalent along the Humboldt County coast and limits are easy to catch. The Rockfish bite has been slower than usual but limits are still possible.
Salmon – The best bet for limits of King Salmon in Humboldt County remains out of Eureka. There are still nice sized Kings stacked just outside of the Humboldt Jetties. Shelter Cove has been producing Salmon but it has been hit or miss. Trinidad has been slow with not many Salmon caught this season.
California Halibut – Anglers fishing for California Halibut will have the best chance under the Samoa bridge drifting live bait in 12-25ft of water. The bite is hot in Humboldt Bay with the best action coming in the afternoon around the low tide.
Pacific Halibut – A few Pacific Halibut have been caught with a few nice sized fish out of Shelter Cove.
Soupfin Shark and Spiny Dogfish
Pacific Sanddab and Other Flatfish
