It was a great first day back for me, after nearly a week and a half of playing hooky. Brian Chan did an excellent job in my absence, posting up some great counts! Speaking of great counts today was some exceptional rock, and lingcod fishing. We finished up with FULL LIMITS of both rockfish and Lings for our crew back in early enough to catch some of the air show. The overall grade on the lings was exceptional!

Final count

30 ling cod (15 limits) to 18 pounds
150 rockfish (15 limits)
