There are a few things that are different for sportfishermen
Commercial fishermen don't go out for fun or meat
They go for money, their living wages
We sportfishermen go selectively for ego, meat, and pleasure.

I don't expect them to share with sportfishermen, as a rule
Taurus is a great source of information, and kudos to him

So I have been relying on the party boats web pages to give me a clue as to what I should fish for
And if you really don't know-how to fish, go out on a party boat, and the crew will help

Lings, halibut, rockfish all being caught
WSB r being caught in the islands
And the reports of bluefin all along the Monterey canyon walls, according to Bayside Marine in Santa Cruz

I'd be out today, but I don't do weekends
