We had our annual Penn University fishing trip sponsored by Penn and our friends at Pure Fishing hosted by Steve Carson (Sr. Tuna).
It was a rockfish/ling cod/white Seabass/ling cod/striped bass trip. The weather at the Farallon was absolutely amazing, we filled up with quality rockfish and A stop on one of my favorite reefs For some chunky lingcod. Back in the bay for some hot Halibut action, over a fish per rod was taken. Chef Marc kept everyone well fed, and some excellent give away’s we’re handed out to our passengers.

Final count

260 rockfish (26 limits)
13 ling cod
29 Halibut
2 striped bass
