9:00 + a.m. . 240ft 64.5 degress. Pond like conditions, A lot of sportboat just farther than we were.
I dropped a heavy Tady 6 and got a sculpin. Tiny, Lot of reeling for it.
Alex was fishing a squish type of iron and kept getting mackerel.
We tossed some in the tank in case we needed later.
He kept dropping and got a different bite. Nice bass. Sandie. More macks', and one more Sandie.
We leave and head in to where Tankers anchor off the beach.
Maybe Sandbass Junction area. 70ft and 65.4 degrees. Put out some of the mackerels on
Halibut rigs and drift slow. mackerel were larger models.
Alex caught small bite size mackerel on dropshot shrimp, switched out the big bait for smaller one and sent him back down.
No more than 3 minutes later and he's on.
Fish surfaced and I tried to net him, Net is too small. Fish in the net and backed right out. Shit!!! Still on. Get the gaff. Try to gaff him and the gaff bounces off him. Fuck!!! I suck!!!
Still on. Try gaff again and still miss him.
Gaff hook is too thick or I suck.
At this point we're soaked, Fish is real pissed. I doubt myself and I am sure Alex thinks WTF is going ON!!
Try net again and this time we both pulled the net and fish in.
We pack up and head in.
Happy Daze for us.
