Went to the South 9mile to catch some fish for today's fish grill. Needed some larger fish if possible. Full moon setting on the way out. Bad omen cuz some say the fish bite all night and are not hungry in the morning. It kinda turned out that way for the first 3 hours of fishing with only 4 fish caught. Then went deeper in an area I have not fished before on the bank at 530 ft. My 1st mate hooks up a couple of reds to 5 lb on first drop there. To decrease the movement and scope of the line especially in windy situation like that day, I employ the trolling motor in spot-lock to stay stationary over a spot. The next drop or two she hits a home run on the 2 hooks on her pole, a 11 lb cow cow and a smaller 9 1/2 lb mexican rockfish. I thought she had the bottom. After a few pics, down the cow cod goes to hopefully live to fight another day. The seas were quite miserable like usual out there. Only two other boats in the area. Little signs of life so called it a day a 1100 without looking for top feeders. Now I've got to filet these fish up for a get-together with friends later on today.
