The 1st mate is away and I lost my honey-do list so I decided to go fishing instead. Got up late, made up some mac chum and left the house at 0800. Stop at bait barge to catch about a dozen small-medium macs. The seas were pretty rough with wind and swell. Fished the kelpline close to the southern end of the PL kelp. After about a half hour looking around picked up this creature from the dark at 85', 13 lbs/34", Fished around for about an hour more with 2-3 other lings pulling on my macs. Did not stick any of them. Called it a day at 1100.

    I have a ling spot in 85ft right by the southern edge of the PL kelp.... it’s only produced shorts though. Great fish

    We were out today. It was bumpy but no significant swell. Just chop. The Southwest wind just sucks. Fished LJ then down to Pt Loma. Mix of stuff nothing too impressive. You got a nice Lingcod.
