Dear Clients and Friends,

July was great, but now August is here!  Dennis completed his first full Ironman a week ago and I am so proud of him!  I joined him for as much of the training as time would allow, but the accomplishment of completing this race is truly amazing.  Hats off to you Dennis

Fish Finder Report by Peter Ottesen

Record Outdoors Correspondent

SALT WATER

Ocean — Awesome salmon fishing continues. Sausalito charters on Monday ran south of Seal Rocks to score 72 Chinook to 22 pounds for 48 anglers. At Bodega Bay, field scout Randy Thomas of Woodbridge, with a host of family and friends, boated 54 salmon over a for-day period last week, with the big fish going 21 pounds. “There were so many whales of all species feeding on krill and anchovies, you felt a little nervous, because they came so close to our boat,” Thomas said. Rock cod fishing is good up and down the West Coast. Better lingcod action is found at Point Sur, Timber Cove and outside Humboldt Bay.
