I have been picking apart the East and South Bay the last few years from my skiff and also on foot. The fishing opportunities are 100% tide related from either. We had a good tide about noon so I figured I would hit a couple of jey spots and then go looking for Carp. First beach adjecent to a tidal creek had birds and Stripers pushing bait in tight. Lot's of life is the key. unbenounced to me were nice Halibut as a bonus. Halibut, being a flat fish are increadibly fast and predatory. They will eat anything. Suprisingly fast!! First fish smoked me and I never saw it. It came unbuttoned about 75ft out. It short lined me about 15 ft off the sand and I thought it was a large Striper but it was more then likely a big Hali. Tons of bait held the fish in casting range for a while and then they would cycle back through. I fished the last of the incoming and the outgo until the flsats were to skinny to hold fish. I looked for tailing Leapord Sharks, which I do see from time to time but nada. I called it with 2 Halibut and about 10 Stripers landed. Excellent day! Stopped off at funky little place for a burger in Berkley and headed home. Great day on the Bay!
