Excuse the late report but I thought this was a pretty cool catch for my son and thought that I'd share.

Went out of MDR in early July for some bottom fishing in about 160' of water. Weather was rain/misting all morning but calm waters otherwise.

The bite started slow until I hooked into a large Sandbass after not even realizing I was on it. Story of the day though was my son, who decided all on his own to use the Red Crab that the bass came up with spitting out for bait and he hooked into a Lingcod in SMB!!! Super proud dad here!!! All of this was captured on video, really cool sequence of events!! Ended the day with about a dozen Whitefish and few Rockfish.

    Very nice and your son is a awesome fisherman, I bet you're a super proud dad! I can not wait till my daughter gets a little older I can take her out fishing, she already loves the being on the boat and pretends fishing in the house with her little toy reel set.

    Great passing fishing down to your son !8-)

    Thanks man! I’m super proud! Hopefully you’ll feel the same way in no time! Just carrying on what my dad gave me, the gift of fishing! Tight lines! 🎣
