Fished two days, may 1st and 2nd. Took 3 guys out each day. Both days got plenty of rockfish and some nice lings and then fished for salmon for a couple of hours in the afternoon. Saturday we had two hook ups and landed a nice one at 27 inches. Weather was great. Lots of boats out on Saturday and it sounded like a few boats were getting a salmon here and there, but not wide open yet.

Thanks for the report! I was out of PSL on Sunday and there were some boats out. We mainly just went for rockcod, but there are a few salmon out there. Glad you were able to get one!

Beware.......DFW will cite you on the spot if you have any hooks with a barb on your boat when you have a salmon on board. I guess you got your bottom fish on barbless hooks.

Nice pile of fish you've got there, and a nice salmon thrown in for extra measure. You guys are eating well for awhile!

Next time you go out be sure to tell some of his salmon buddies that there's lots of bait down south. ha ha

Might want to read the regs again before spewing crap on the web.Your fine fishing cods first with barbs then salmon afterwards without.Just can't do it the other way around.

Just watch your depth once you have cod on board. I don't know your cod depth restrictions down there but we have 20fthm limit. Once you have cod on board you can not fish deeper than the rockfish depth restrictions for salmon.

Who says you can't fish for rockfish after catching salmon? If you have salmon on board your vessel then you must be fishing with single barbless hooks (or circle hooks if you use bait and are not trolling) if you decide to go for rockfish.

We were discussing barbless hooks.Reading comprehension goes along way.Maybe that's why you have 9 posts in 7 years

No need to get all hissy pissy over a subject people get confused with. My low amount of posts is irrelevant to the subject at hand.

Re-reading your post I can see why I may have mis-read it. I took your last statement as it reads that you cannot fish rockfish after fishing salmon. Hence my post.
