    Fished Long Beach area, about 65 ft of water, some Live and mostly dead squid used for bait. water showed about 60.5 degrees, no wind, slight current, 20lb test line, slding sinker and hook.

    since my son invited some friends on the boat (i didnt know this until friday afternoon) great boys so i didnt mind much. I decided to start late and got on the water at 9am. Headed over to nachos to get some squid to ensure fun for all. First Nacho yells at me " we got no squid!!" Nacho then sees all the boys on my boat and says ahh get over here lets see what we can get. Nacho then proceeded to one by one pick out the very few remaining squid he had, after about a half hour he managed to scrape up about 30 pc. MANY PROPS TO NACHO FOR TAKING OUT THE TIME TO MAKE SURE THESE BOYS HAD A GOOD DAY!!!!! Thank you Nacho, much appreciated effort..
    we then head over in perfect conditions to a rock spot i seem to do well at that has many varieties fish on it.
    The Sheep head are sure to give the boys a fun day of catch and release. Outr goal of course was some Sculpin which didnt disappoint also. the boys ( i never even got a pole in the water) were bringing up fish faster then i could keep up with and with sculpin be hooked left and right i made the boys keep the fish hanging in the water til i could get to them. the day produced many sheep head up to 14lb and about 30 sculpin up to 4 lbs, keeper ling cod and other assorted bottom fish. All fish released except for 10 sculpin kept for dinner.. Inked20180113_115027_LI.jpg

    The boys got Freight trained a few times by something big? think i might have found him. i took these images of a fish swimming the area we were fishing. Trying to figure out what it is anyone out there able to tell me what it is from these Photos?

    I’m just assuming so I could be wrong but if you are calling that fish in front of the kid with the orange hat a lingcod, that’s a cabezon. 7 inch difference on legal size. Curious too bc if that is the case and you were comparing it to being a legal ling at 22 inches, then that’s a really really nice cabezon. Love junk fishing in January and February. All the shallow water lings, cabezon, and sheeps know they are off limits i feel and always get into the bigger ones. The mandatory catch and release for the offseason is always nice too

    I didnt get any photos of the Ling Cod. I told him we cant keep it and he released it along with my better pair of fish grippers (Fish gripper is somewhere in ocean now.) before i could get a photo... the boys caught , Browns, Treefish, Mackeral, sand Bass , calico, and Coppers. Im sure there are a few i forgot also. i just didnt mention them all..

    Wow,first worrying that you may not get bait,and then it ends up being a great day,14lb goat,nice ling,slug cabbie,tussle with bsb,that was awesome,those kids are “hooked” for sure,way to go Nacho,he was probably a little spent loading skIffs all morning till baits all gone,glad to hear his soft spot is still operable,he’s a pretty cool guy.

    Beautiful Cabezon.

    I've only caught one in my life, about the same size. Threw her back due to the rarity of the catch.

    Looks like a great day on the water.
    I enjoy watching people catch fish on my boat almost as much as hanging them myself.
