Since Salmon season has been so slow and the swell is up we decided to give the bay a try for the first time. As we have heard that the halibut were on the bite, left Santa Cruz around 5am. and was at the Berkley Marina at 7am. went straight to the alameda rock wall for some bounce balling and I ended up with 2 nice smaller flatties and had some good take downs and short strikes. This was my first trip ever to the bay and not my last. It was flat calm all day which the locals say is rare.
