Light Charter Load

We had a light 13 man charter today. Fished the islands in some flat calm weather, the cod were chowing down! It was absolutely wide open with a lot of great quality rockfish. We left there with limits and time to spare, finished up in the bay on a solid Halibut bite getting almost 2 around. I have room for sharks this coming Tuesday and room for potluck the rest of the week.

Final count

160 rockfish (13 limits plus crew)
19 Halibut
2 striped bass

For reservations
