    Ling cod set ups.

    If you are fishing shallow the 5 and 6 inch swim baits work great. Recently my group caught limits shallow. We had a big one that had eaten about a third of a just legal Ling came up hitch hiking. I had not seen one eat another before

    AA Ken's Custom Reel 7-Day

    Excellent report. I agree the talks with Brian are a must hear. A great operation from Lori, to the skippers, crew and chef. If you have not been on the AA please give her a shot.

    New Rayanne

    A group of us from central and southern California made the drive to Sausalito and fished salmon for two days on the New Rayann. I am super impressed with Captain Johnny.
