Another great day had from the folks at Penn University. Hosted by Steve Carson (Sr.Tuna) and sponsored by Penn

This trip was scheduled for off shore fishing but we opted for the coast
Since the weather forecast looked lousy. Nearshore the weather was great. Fished the Marin coast for full limits of rockfish, the lings bit well enough to get us over a fish per rod. We then decided to finish up the day with some halibut. It was good enough to net us about a fish per rod on them. Top prizes went to largest ling, first ling and largest halibut. Also, all that attended got some great prizes! Big thanks again to Steve and Penn for another year of Penn University!

Final count

180 rockfish (16 limits plus crew)
19 ling cod
16 halibut
2 cabazon

I have room for tomorrow for potluck and salmon on the New E3 and room all of next week for both boats.
