    Hey everyone, pretty new to the forum and have learned a lot so far. Renting a skiff with a couple friends this saturday from Seaforth Coronado and was wondering if you guys had tips for that area as I’ve never fished from a skiff or that part of SD Bay.

    If I had a skiff, I’d be going full speed to the flats south of the bridge with fresh sardines or macks.

    One day we fished bass. We had some macs and bonies in the mix so I set up on the south side of the glorietta bay entrance and casted into the deeper water to the north. We caught so many sharks and rays my buddy a southern cat fisherman waa grinning ear to ear. We got rays 40#s plus and a few giant shovelnose. Plus wide open sharks.

    What size hook you prefer when fishing live sardines?

    You won’t need to use them live, but I’m not sure what hook size for live. I always use a circle hook when they are dead. 4/0 circle hook.

    Hook Size should be determined by the size of the live bait . Nose , shoulder , or butt hooking them the hook point should be relatively unobstructed . A selection of Size 1 to 5 /0 should cover most the sardines we get here . Smaller if the fish are picky and just won't bite it . Good luck . WR
