    The charter with the best price.
    Got out today on one of the Half Moon Bay boats for some RF & Ling jigging. Started out with 4ft swell that soon turned into 5-6ft, with a steady 10-15mph wind, and a strong ripping current from the big tides right now, challenging for slow pitch finesse fishing and I didn't bring any standard gear, but I was dying to get out and fill my freezer.

    Managed my limit on RF with a lot of work, a handful of shaker Lings, but SPJ rewarded me with my top fish 7 lb Vermillion.

    Just a NuCanoe Frontier now.
    I fished out of Santa Barbara recently in even nastier weather than that. It was basically continuous long fall fishing and trying to stay in contact with the bottom. I got my limit of fish but it wasn't exactly the ideal conditions for spj. It still worked though.

    Nice red !
