You're bragging about all the leopord sharks and didn't even mention the 2 halibut? You can keep the sharks and I'll take those halibut.

Yeah I've got to agree with Jawbreaker on the halibut. We used to go down there just for them and they are so good! The sharks are fun though.

You guys are all right. The Halibut are definitely better eating in my books, and the water was flatter than I have ever seen it before.

Looks like lots of fun.
You can hop but you can't hide. Yahi Bowmen. Its not how far you can shoot but how close to the game you get when you shoot. Sights we don't need any sights. Why waist time reloading when I can be making arrows.

We were anchored, using Live Sardines with a big 7 aught hook, with 12 to 16 oz sinker depending on the tide, hooked to a slider.

After dispatching your shark with a club, GUT it ASAP. If not they pass wastes into the meat that will taint the flavor. At the same time open the stomach, look for partially digested midshipman. This is "hot bait". Use it to bait your hook, it's like shark candy.

never went deep sea fishing. Would love to try it one day.

All of these fish were caught in or around the SF Bay. Raith and I met a guy, named James Smith, that runs a Charter Boat there called the California Dawn. We met him at the California Sportsman's Expo. His Booth was right next to Ray's and his cook kept hooking us up with lunch and dinner. We ended up becoming friend's. We go fishing with him and he goes fishing and hunting with us. The California Dawn is the only Charter Boat there that will Cook for you. When we go, we get a bunch of friends together and book the whole boat. I always go for the all you can eat deal that Tawny puts together. The food is great. I take a big ice chest full of nothing but drinks and ice and use it to take my fish home in. A trip like this will cost me about $175 for every person that I take. That is for fishing, gear, all the food I can eat, and Tips for the crew. That is about $100 for the fishing $10 for gear $25 for all the food I can eat and the rest of the $175 goes for getting my fish cleaned by the deck hand and tips. I have never had a bad trip on this Boat. James comes from a family of fisherman knows is stuff. I would highly recommend this for a trip to go on if you want to give it a try.
