    Long time reader 1st post. Fished the mouth of the bay yesterday from 9-1 with small sardines and the Halibut action was awesome, caught 12 between 16 and 21 inches plus a 33 inch and 25 inch Halibut. Would have stayed longer the fish were still biting but the wind made too hard to keep the bait down while drifting

    For a small boat, a 5 gallon bucket with a rope on the handle will slow things down considerably if the wind/current isn't too bad
