Went out on the Cal Dawn on Thursday. The Sniffer and Berkley sponsored a cool trip where we used only New Berkley Gulp Baits for Rocks and Lings. It was my first charter boat trip, first lingcod, and first rock fish experience. Here's the outcome:

Biggest Ling of the day to win the $800 jackpot:

We will have a full report soon, but it was definitely an epic trip.

Right in bruddah..congrats on the jackpot. Definitely feels good to catch the biggest fish on the boat and the money is a nice bonus too. Quality rockies as well. Great job.

Btw what specific Gulp products were y'all using?

Berkley provided some baits in the Gulp Alive series that haven't been sold on the West Coast. There were a bunch of different sizes and shapes of baits.

This was a special promotional trip for Berkley, but there Cal regularly has his School of Fishing events on this boat. There is a Forum announcement for the next SoF even for Sturgeon on Oct 9. Sniffers are always welcome.

You should go for sure. Fishing on either boat with Jay Lopes or David Hammond will be an awesome opportunity.

I wa hoping you were doing a little testing on the rock/ling trip.

Maybe trying to see if it was a good choice for the fantasy football grand prize....

Hahaha :grin: JK

Call either of them to book. Just let them know you want to book on the School of Fishing Trip. Cal and Ernie Marlan will be on both boats throughout the day. (Ernie is the guy in blue behind me in the Ling Cod pic. He's an excellent angler and a great guy. )

I would love to go! Sounds like a great way to get some experience plus have an awesome day on the water.

Thanks for sharing this here Wes, I would have probably never seen it on the forum announcement. At least not until it was to late.

I only know of three of these hats. One is mine, one is in Alaska, and the third is in Cal Kellogg's truck. Someday, we will have them available for purchase.

Sick hat. The duck's would love it. Might have to wear it back words though. Again what was that 2nd fish not sure I have caught one?

I'm honestly not sure what the second fish was. They told me on the boat, but we caught so many different species that I couldn't keep them straight.
