my boat . but we ran back to La Jolla with a game plan to do some rockfishing and wait for birds. And sure enough around 10 o'clock the bird started working but we just cannot get to them fast enough we saw a kayak hook up and while fighting his fish he gets slammed on his second rod. and that was that it was over as fast as it started . so we go back to bottom fishing and at about 11:30 we start to see the birds again but this time we were ready we get on them I take a long cast and BAM!!! I'm on . It's a good yellowtail I'm hooked up I quickly get his head turned and I'm putting hurt on it . so I started to get cocky when the fish makes a long run and then another then I see it DOG I started to yell at Adam to get on the wheel and start doing circles he doesn't even ask questions he just jumped and did it without knowing what was going on then he figured out we were circling my line with the boat and keeping the seal off of my fish about 5 minutes into it he sticks the Gaff in fish was pretty much dead and the dog was pissed . All and all good day with a naw friend .about 120 ' of water and anchovy color flatfall 25 # fluorocarbon

    Good catch bro! Way to execute the gameplan and be to be ready when it counted. Love that you circled your line to keep the dog away. We haven't tried that before. How do you avoid running over your line?
