View Full Version : Great Day On The Dawn

Met up with 4 friends Saturday for an end of the year trip. Fairly light load on the boat, about 25 I think. Headed up the Marin Coast and found a very light swell and great weather. Very casual fishing for me. Drop the shrimp fly, turn it up a few cranks, put the rod in the holder and wait for the bite. Ended up with a limit of 10 nice blacks and released 2 greenlings. Didn't even put an squid on the hooks. The crabs were also excellent. Friend of mine won the pot with a nice ling.

Good stuff Jason! You chose a good boat to spend the day on and it looks like you got into them. James is one of my closest friends and I grew up double decking w/ him when he worked for his father Jim on the Happy Hooker, years ago. Back when we actually had those incredible beach bass runs outside the GG. That entire Smith clan are fish killing machines! Thanks for the post.
