Weekend in San Francisco, with Cod.

Debra and I pulled into SF Friday after work relishing the blessed cool air compared to the Tri-Valley cookery. We had dinner that night at Bar Crudo on Divisadero, 2 thumbs up. Small plates goodness.

Saturday morning we set off from South Beach Harbor on a walking tour. We walked up the Embarcadero enjoying the sights.

IMG_1707 IMG_1708 IMG_1709Dogs were tired so we rode Muni back to the harbor. Dinner that night at Calzones in North Beach and then a stop at my favorite Greek place for Gyros platter fixings for the fishing trip Sunday.

Mike S met us at the harbor 7:30 AM and we were off to see the baitman and out the gate.

We trolled for salmon for an hour but it was clear no one was fishing for pink so we ran up to the towers for rockfish. Real steady bite but had to wade through the little guys. Got my first hitch hiker ling thanks to a Dangerous net job.

Mid-afternoon we got to see/hear a cool thunder lightning/thunder show off of Ocean Beach

IMG_1765We had busting bait, jumping threshers/porpoises/whales and lots of diving birds late afternoon. Back at the dock at 4:30 where Mike made quick work of the fish.
