Fished area 2 Hali for the first time yesterday. Weather could not have been better. Amazing how much area 2 looks like the SW corner -big ocean with 100’s of boats packed into small area. There was a good Hali bite, we sorted through a few fish to get the 5 we wanted. The crew fortunately had hot hands as they caught our limit before I landed a fish. By 9:00am we were on the hunt for lings but only found rockfish and dogfish. By noon we ran in shore to finish off on rockfish. We then tried for salmon trolling south towards the north bowl at the 250ft line. All we caught was a native coho and small black mouth but we managed to get all our rockfish cleaned. Deep water lings seem harder to come by this time of year. Post up your pics, especially ling. I am willing to buy beer for anyone willing to send me ling numbers that hold summer fish.
