    Left Peter's Landing Sunday February 26th at 7:15 am, chilly but calm in the Parker. Immediately headed toward Izors stopping at "Eva" derrick on the way. Setting up on the south side. My buddy Ross hooks up quickly and my first cast with the green plastic brings a hefty calico on the drop. First cast! 57 degree water, 57 degree outside temperature , moderate wind chop. See the "double" picture.
    Wind and current working together pushed us through the zone pretty quickly, we stayed and tried all the sides with mixed results. After about 8-10 Calicos followed by a couple dry runs we head to Izors.
    Wind and current was ripping, needed 10- 12 ounces to keep the dead squid near the bottom. After losing a couple rigs, with nothing to show for it, except some pretty good marks on the sonar, we move on.
    Now it starts to rain, luv the Parker cabin! Usually in the center console, whew!
    Run inside the breakwall heading toward PV to ease the pounding and rain. See only one other boat working Izors and none on the breakwall. At Angel's Gate we find birds all over the place and stop to try it out. Mack's everywhere! We load the bait tank and continue on our way.
    Not much catching the rest of the day as we work Pt. Vicente and North. Finding an occasional cooperative mack. Weather cleared to blue skies for a nice change. Ross takes a nap. :-) not much going on.
    Heading back to the breakwall we see a small pod of whales around Pt Fermin, closely followed by wet and drizzly weather. Putted around inside and finished up drifting for halibut which produced a single raked 10 inch mack.
    Calling it a day and heading in. Always an adventure! 20170226_081329.jpg 20170226_115904.jpg IMG_20170226_082856723.jpg 20170226_120324.jpg 20170226_111555.jpg

    Nice Checkerboard.

    Very nice ride you have there. With that dry cabin you almost want to get into the shit weather, lol.
