Fished Thursday through Friday on the Ocean. We slept in Thursday morning and launched at 8:00 to avoid the launch lines which mostly worked except for the boat in front of us lost a trailer tire when he turned into the launch. Took us over 2 hours of running in lumpy water to get out to the corner which was as crowded as I have ever seen it. We apparently missed a morning bite as we heard folks had been on fish earlier. It took us two hours to hit our first fish. The water ended up laying down in the afternoon. Lings were a nice grade and came fairly easy all three days but hali's were slow both Thursday and Saturday. We kept a couple 10-15lb hali's to fill our 6 limits on Saturday as we wanted to get to rockfish and in early. This was my slowest and smallest hali's opener I have seen in 10 years. Would like to hear others experience. Not sure if it was the strong tides or maybe the long liners had been in the week before? Surprisingly Saturday seemed less crowded at the launch and retrieve than Thursday, maybe it was just my timing. Here is a pic of one of the bigger lings on the rockpile that took a rockfish which took a shrimp fly. The Ling hardly fought and stayed at the surface for several minutes while we took photos.
