Golden State Salmon Association hosts ‘Fish Like a Girl’ trip

The superb salmon fishing now available off the coast of the San Francisco Bay Area this season was seen in the second “Fish Like a Girl” trip hosted by the Golden State Salmon Association (GSSA) on Aug. 18.

“Twenty fun, beautiful women on a fishing boat with a hard working crew went out into the Pacific Ocean to go salmon fishing in perfect weather,” said Cat Kaiser, events director for the GSSA. “It started with a dance party and mimosas, and then the girls caught full limits of incredible salmon up to 32 pounds.”

The fishing began with a bite by smaller salmon around the 20-inch minimum range off the San Mateo County Coast near Pedro Point.

“We joked that we were kokanee fishing,” Kaiser said. “Then like a light switch, the bite for big fish turned on when Tricia Nesler caught the first real fish of the day at 26 pounds. She ended up catching her personal best six times. Pretty much all of the fish caught after that catch were between 18 and 32 pounds. Lorinne Otte won the day’s jackpot with a 32-pound king.”
