Halibut in the bay is remarkably still going strong, and this has been a spectacular year for that, too many of us caught them to list here. The bay is chock full of smaller halibut, and the future looks magnificent. Joe Miscione, Mario Moritorio, Phil Scimonelli, and Brion Beetz fished piers in the lower bays for mixed bags of stripers, smelt, rays, sharks, and even a guitarfish. Phil, Brion, Ron Lew, Ray Pixton, and Carl Moyer caught catfish from San Pablo Reservoir. Bob Stein, Carl Moyer, Brion Beetz, Ron Lew, and Rich Fiscina caught rock fish and ling cod from the ocean. Many of the members of the fishing group met with the Sirs in the Kitchen at host Ed Benson’s house for our annual fish feast. This is an incredible food and drink gathering. Over 40 pounds of fish fillets were devoured. Meanwhile, Tom Kostik and Mike Corker sought black and striped bass in the delta. Pete Gates and Tom Boltz caught halibut and salmon in Alaska. Jerry Hicks took a guided fly fishing trip to Oregon for lots of trout.
