Easy fish to catch and eat in Bay Area for a newbie fisher?

bythebay | May 3, 2012 08:05 PM

I hope my message doesn't get deleted. My last one on fishing did so I'm trying to keep this very specific and food-related.

I want to catch a fish for the first time ever and then eat it. I got a book on catching different fish in Northern Cal. but I can't tell from that what would be the easiest fish to try to catch and best place to go to try to catch it. I'm in the East Bay and prefer to go somewhere in Marin or East Bay. I feel like Marin might be a nicer experience, but open to any ideas where the fishing wouldn't be too hard.

I seem to like less fishy tasting fish like halibut (my current favorite) and sole. I haven't tried a ton of fish though so I'm not sure which others I'd like, open to suggestions. I feel like if I catch it I'll like eating it, regardless of the type. Hopefully!
