It’s an Epic Class Size on Lings!

Farallon Islands - San Francisco, CA (San Francisco County)

by James Smith

What a phenomenal day at the islands! As fast as you dropped a line, you hooked a fish. Absolutely wide open fishing! The weather was perfectly flat. Whales , tufted puffins and all the usual suspects of marina life was there. We finished up with full limits of rockfish and lings before 11am.
Final count
50 ling cod. (25 limits) 250 rockfish (25 Limits)
I have room this coming week starting on Monday. It’s an epic class size on lings, the best bite I’ve seen in over a year and worth calling in sick for.

The California Dawn operates out of Berkeley Marina. We are the the only boat in the bay area with a hot galley. If you would like to go fishing with us please call (510) 417-5557. For more information please visit our website
