We had another stellar crab combo today sponsored by Phenix rods. Jack pot winners today were presented with a 9 foot Phenix 907Abyss, for the biggest rockfish and biggest ling cod. I targeted more structure today giving up quality Canary, Brown, and Vermillion rockfish (full limits) also nabbing over a fish per rod on the lings!
We turned our attention to the Crab getting full limits of commercial sized Dungeness.
I have Spots open scattered throughout the week.

Final count

320 rockfish (32limits)
320 Dungeness crab (32 limits)
30 ling cod to 25 pounds
