we got a late start Friday night and headed down south.
we went through the boarder at 9 pm and made it to the old mill by 1:30 am.
i was really suprised that there was barley any people on the road and with only one short section of road under construction, it was smooth driving.
then we all got up at 5:30 am to go fishing.
we try and make bait but there is nothing around so we head out to sea.
the weather was up a bit but nothing too crazy with 2-5 feet of swell, 2-3 feet of wind swell, and 10 -15 knots of wind.
so we start fishing and we get into some really nice quality reds and ling cod, nothing wide open but a slow and steady pick on them.
later in the day we saw some birds working and tried to get some yt but they would not bite for us, the water was around 54 degrees.
good news was i finally got my new pb ling cod at 22 lb, so i was really stoked. the weird thing was that it was 40 inches long with a slim body, i could only guess how big i could have been if it was a fat one.
that ling cod ended up puking up a 1 to 2 lb octopus as well and i put that on a hook only to have it get hit real hard and something chewed through my 60 lb line a couple drifts later, bummer.
day 2
skipped trying to make bait and headed straight out.
this time it was better weather and much better fishing with a wide open ling cod bite.
we got a few reds and the biggest starrys that i have ever seen, around 3 - 4 lb.
my buddy Hermin got his new pb ling cod at 13 lb so he was a happy guy.
we got limitis by 11:30 that morning and headed in to pack up and make the drive home.
alot of our fish came on cut bait and the rest we got on squid and irons.
most ling cod were around 8 - 12 lb
reds were 4 - 7 lb
pics to come in later

Congratulations on the ling. That thing could have gone close to 30lbs if it were in pre-spawn condition.
