North Coast Divers Take the Plunge, Target Hoards of Purple Urchins
by Mary Callahan
THE PRESS DEMOCRAT | June 6, 2018, 5:13PM
They came off the ocean floor by the hundreds, spiky purple spheres scraped into canvas bags by divers from around the North Bay compelled to try to preserve what remains of the North Coast’s ravaged kelp forest and the red abalone fishery it once supported.
About 7,100 pounds of kelp-gobbling purple urchins — an estimated 56,800 individual organisms — were collected over a two-day cull that drew 100 sport divers to the rocky Ocean Cove on the Sonoma Coast to vent long pent-up frustration and angst over the state of their diving grounds.
“This is a day I’ve waited four years for,” Timber Cove diver Jason O’Donnell, 45, said as he paddled ashore with a pile of bulging urchin bags aboard his kayak. “I don’t want to watch the whole ocean die and do nothing.”
Participants came from all over Sonoma County and as far away as Sacramento, San Jose and Hayward to take part in the Memorial Day weekend effort which, at its peak, had more than 85 divers deployed simultaneously in the waters just south of Salt Point State Park.

The rockfish are chomping and the spring crab bite is solid. With the salmon season opening next Sunday, June 17th there will be plenty of local opportunities for Bodega anglers. On Monday June 11th, Rick on the New Sea Angler reported great action. After resetting his crab gear three weeks ago he has “dialed in” and on his last four trips has sent everyone home with limits of quality crabs. Today he reported 15 limits of crabs, limits of rockfish and a ling per rod. Rick said they are seeing a solid ten crabs per pot and expects solid fishing (or trapping) through the seasons end on the last day of June. With the salmon opener next Sunday Rick will be running ‘”captain’s choice” combos where he could target salmon, lings rockfish and crabs depending on what is biting best and the weather conditions.
The rockfish action remains excellent. Rick on the New Sea Angler took 15 clients out on Friday June 8th. Fishing off Ten Mile Rick said he found a few untouched spots loaded with big coppers, browns and reds. After loading the sacks with 16 lings to 15 pounds and their limits of rockfish they pulled through the crab gear. Rick said he was surprised with the numbers in the pots and they sent everyone home with a bonus of FULL LIMITS of crabs for all on board. Rick has lots of space this weekend.
The New Sea Angler (707-875-3344) and the six-pack Miss Anita (707-875-3474) out of Bodega Bay. They will take you on a trip to catch crab, rockfish and other fish.
