Humboldt’s Friday Fishing Report 9/2/2016
Shelter Cove – The Salmon bite out of Shelter Cove has been steady with a really nice grade of fish being caught. The Rockfish and Lingcod action has been stellar and there are plenty of nice sized Lingcod around. There are still a few California Halibut hanging around Deadman’s Beach. The Tuna bite was mediocre with a few fish caught here and there this week.
Eureka – The Salmon bite was mediocre yesterday out of Eureka as anglers scrambled to relocate the fish after the two week hiatus. Most boats initially tried fishing inside the Jaws but ended up heading out to deeper water for better action with a mixed grade of fish. The California Halibut bite in Humboldt Bay is still hot. Angler’s have had the best success under the Samoa Bridge in 12-20ft of water drifting live bait. The Tuna bite out of Eureka was not as hot as expected with only a few fish caught over the past few days.
Trinidad – The Salmon bite was decent out of Trinidad on the 1st with some nice fish caught in deeper water. A few Pacific Halibut were caught out of Trinidad, but the majority of the focus has been on Salmon. The Rockfish and Lingcod bite has been excellent out of Trinidad this week.
