We had some EPIC fishing today at the Farallon islands. “Wide open” jumbo blues, reds, widow and olive rockfish filled the sacks. It took all of 2 drifts to fill the limits. We focused on lings bagging 31 with some monsters in the mix. I came back into the bay for a handful of bass and Halibut. We are running island trips the days the load and weather allows.

Final count

280 rockfish (24 limits plus crew)
31 ling cod to 20 pounds
3 Halibut
6 striped bass
