I FISHED THE FARALLON ISLANDS TODAY ABOARD THE TIGERFISH.. HEADED OUT OF THE HARBOR RIGHT AT 6 AM. AND HAD A NICE LONG RIDE INTO THE SWELL TO A QUICK STOP TO CATCH BAIT, JUST SHORT OF THE ISLAND ... WE DROPPED FLY'S DOWN ABOUT 140 - 170 FT AND BOATED ABOUT 75-100 SAND DABS FOR 23 FISHERMAN AND WOMEN. THEN WE MOVED ABOUT 10 MIN. NORTH OF THERE, JUST SOUTH OF THE ISLAND, AND GOT INTO A WALL OF BLUES RANGING FROM 20 FT TO THE BOTTOM , A MIX OF SIZE.. I THINK MOST EVERYONE HAD LIMITS OF ROCK FISH IN AFTER THE FIRST DRIFT, 2X2'S.. I OF COURSE TRIED TO BE PICKEY SO I WOULDN'T HAVE A SACK OF SMALL FISH OR ALL BLUES.. SO BY THE THIRD DRIFT MOST EVERYONE WHERE ON THERE WAY TO DROP THERE SAND DABS DOWN AND I FINISHED OFF MY LIMIT OF BLUES, GO FIGURE ::).. BY THEN THERE HAD BEEN A GOOD 6 LINGS BOATED AND THE LAST THREE BEING BIG LINGS.. 2 IN THE LOW 20 LB CLASS AND ONE CLOSE TO 30 LBS.. I ENDED UP CATCHING TO UNDER SIZE LINGS AND LOOSING THREE BIGGER FISH WHICH I NEVER GOT A HOOK IN.. DAMN HITCHIKERS.. * >:( * I DID FINALLY PUT ON A STINGER HOOK AND LANDED ONE MORE.. BUT IT WAS TO LATE, *AS THE CAPTAIN HAILED OUT REEL EM' UP WERE HEADING IN... ALL IN ALL IT WAS A GOOD DAY, GOOD WEATHER, GOOD CAPTAIN AND CREW, AND DECENT FISH... I JUST WISH THEY WOULD MAKE EVERYONE USE THE SAME SIZE SINKERS ! ;)
