Berkeley Charter Boats out of Berkeley Marina report recent catches are 14-20 lb. salmon, with one at 32 lbs.! Two boats went out last Monday and the combined total was 26 salmon for 27 anglers. But Berkeley Charter Boats’ Captain Robert Gallia said that at this time of year with the larger salmon, their catch would have been better if some of the fisherman had not used their own old gear. Their lines, knots and gear broke trying to reel in the big kings. Commercial salmon trolling ended on Oct. 15, so salmon fishing should improve through the rest of this season. Other boats are fishing for salmon and rock cod in combination trips through the end of October.
