1st trip of the year

Postby wdlfbio » Sun Apr 26, 2015 10:38 am

Won a freebie charter trip with 10 of us fishing in a 43' Delta. Was a pretty good reason not to drag my boat out of the shop.
It was strictly bottom fishing for black rockfish and lingcod.

Conditions were pretty darn good for April. 6' at 11 seconds w <10 knot winds.

Hooking and landing these takes skill

Did pretty well with limits of 1.5-5# rockfish and maybe a dozen lings.


Of course, we needed 2 long sleeve shirts, a fleece, and the float coats to stay warm. Even hand warmers in my pockets. Truck's thermometer said 37°F when we arrived at the marina...
