    After months of "biting at the bit" to pull on a Lingcod, the weather gods gave the Channel Islands a brief reprieve on Sunday, from the unrelenting winds that pounded the islands for most of all of last week.

    The plan was to fish a Ling hole and then round out our limits with some tasty Rockfish. My fishing buddies for the day were Mitch “fishrdie”, Mike “Baja Mike” and perch pounder Jason “jscrib”.

    The ride out to the honey-hole was EPIC, with little to no wind. Sweeet!!

    On our first drop, we pulled up 6 legal Lingers, two double hook-ups and two single hook-ups. Needless to say, we got our limit in less than 10 minutes.

    Jason with his first Lingcod of the day, and Mitch pulling in a double hook-up.

    Decided to take the front side of the island back to port, since the wind picked up quite a bit out of the southeast, but it turned out to be even more wind on the front side, coming off the island.

    We tried bounce balling around Becher’s Bay, but our hoochies didn’t get touched. Maybe next time.

    All in all we had a fabulous trip with phenomenal weather until the first half of the ride home, then the wind died as we crossed the channel past Gilda.

    I can’t wait to do another trip out to the enchanted Channel Islands. HOOK-UP!!!!

    Till next tide,

    Best quality ling fishing I've ever done. I can't even remember how many we released. It was hard trying to get away from them.

    Thanks Vince for another epic rock fish trip. I vacuumed packed all my fish today and stuft the freezer. Jessica is so stoked and also thanks you.
