Aww Shucks
I took my pops out fishing for an all-day run locally out of Long Beach. My pops had to take off work for quite some time because of some serve back pain. After several months of therapy, shots, and being bed-ridden, he said he is ready to head back to Iowa to his regular job. I decided to test out his back with some of big yellows outside the harbor. We filled the kill-bag with them. After that, he requested I take him out to his favorite type of fishing: rockfishing. We did excellent on the rockfish and ended the evening with some lobstering. Looks like my pops is almost all better. I think I was more tired than he was. Here are some pictures for you to enjoy:



I stopped by Nacho to make some macs and a buy a swig of sardines.



The fleet of boats was at the San Pedro Green Buoy. I stuck to my guns and went to where I found some at the last outing. Here is my pops with the one of the yellows.



It is pretty good fishing when no one is around. But the fleet eventually caught on and I was surrounded. After another skiff ran over my dad’s fish, I felt it was time to go. Besides we had more than enough yellowtail.



Pops asked to go rockfishing, so we did. I have a lot of rockfish spots from all my years of being on the water. I just picked a “red-snapper” waypoint that was the closest, which was just ¾ of a mile away. I don’t know how long it has been since I fished this number but it was loaded.



We went back inside the harbor. I took a quick nap then dropped our hoopnets. No one was around so we had all the lobster in the area crawl into our nets.


Not a bad day at all. See you all next time.

That's a great day with your dad! "Dad, would you like yellow, orange or red today?" You just bagged some good eats for the next few months!

Time with dad is priceless. My pops couldn't make our last annual outting to Cedros because of health. Every trip with your Dad is to be cherished. And you guys got a good day of catching to boot. Great job and congrats on creating more memories with your dad.
