Sorry for the late report, but didnt get back until a little late and then Sunday was cleaning day.

Short Story is 6 bft from 15-40lbs. Plus bonus bottom fish for 30 minutes at the end of the day.

Left Friday night with squid and sardines. Got to tanner around 530am Saturday. Only 2 people were awake at 6:00am. We metered around and found the squid holding at around 35 ft, or at least that is what I think they were. We landed the 30 and 40lber at that time, more people would have caught more fish. Then it was a long plunker bite for the remaining 4, about one an hour. They definitely preferred squid, but did get bit on sardine. We were in 300-400 ft of water. IMG_0922.jpegIMG_0928.jpeg

Caught sand dabs on the east end of the bank. Went bottom fishing for about 30 minutes. Got hammered on a dab, but didnt get it. But there are some big bottom critters there and that was really fun.

Long run, super happy that gas prices are so cheap... But we made a day of it.

Water temp was 62-63. It was 60-61 on the way out.

The weather turned amazing, probably 70-75 out there and clear as can be. Saw shooting stars on the way out. Stunning.
