We had a great crab combo opener today. Weather was absolutely beautiful! It was a “pick” bite on the rockfish at the islands but we managed to work out some fantastic quality for full limits of rockfish. We managed a handful of ling cod, before switching over to Dungeness crab. Pots were fishing well. We finished off with full limits of crab to make it another memorable opener!
I had a couple of spots open up for tomorrow and Monday.

Final count

33 limits of rockfish (330)
33 limits of Dungeness crab (330)
12 ling cod
