After picking up a half scoop of squrts from Nachos yesterday, Buzz and I came across a LB fire vessel towing in a partially submerged boat. We stopped to see if any assistance was needed. Looked like everything was ok so headed on out to catch some future tacos.

For the second week in a row we limited out on sculpin and rockfish. The nice thing about having squid is that you never know what you might catch. Last week after limiting on sculpin we went deep, 300 or so, and nailed a big goat, a couple huge reds, lots of groupers and successfully released a cow cod, approximately 20lbs. That was fun so we thought we'd try it again this week.

Same story, easy limits of scullies, nice reds, only we had to release 2 cows this time. Both times we had the descending device ready and were able to quickly send the cows back down. It takes a 5lb weight to get a large cow to sink.

Anyway, does anyone know the story behind the sinking boat?

    Cranking up 5 lbs 200-300 feet, that's a legit fisherman right there.

    I installed a coupler bolt to an old level wind, set that up to half a rod, and take an old dewalt drill for my descender. Learned the hard way to set the drill to low speed and set the clicking torque management device thing on it to high and not off. My 1 lb sinker came shooting out of the water like a bat out of hell my first try.

    It looks like the reds out of Southern Venture look bigger when you feed them the live candy!
    Nice Job!
