Other than the offshore wing first thing in morning, and the lack of crab, it was another stellar day on the big blue with good friends and non stop action on ling cod. I think this is the first time I ever had to toss back so many quality lings, I also got my personal best Cap. The crab was almost nonexistent, we only got 4 crab in 9 traps and only 2 females that were sent back
Thanks again brother!
Here are some pictures of the day

Those are great lookin' lings! Do you recall what depth you were fishing? I've been out a few times after lings and I've been getting a ton of fish in the 23" range.

Way to go, looks like great quality fish and the Lings are still bitting. :appledancing:

There was an open seat for sunday aboard the Reel Kahuna and I jumped on it. This was going to be my last fishing trip for the rest of the year. And having Seon, White cap Al and Str8fishon CJ aboard, made it for a great crew.
The day started like this.......

A beautiful sunrise on the blue.



First one to score was Al. And what a nice fish!http://i127.photobucket.com/albums/p146/doneli62/DSCN6227_zps0ac98ec1.jpg (http://s127.photobucket.com/user/doneli62/media/DSCN6227_zps0ac98ec1.jpg.html)

Followed by CJ who didn't want to be left behind and scored a nice one also.

And there I go..not what I wanted for the first one but a nice red.

And the day continued like that...the captain put us on a nice spot, full of good quality fish..

And Seon took a break from driving around and let CJ drive his boat to look for some more fish.

After a great day and lots of fish and no shortage on the laughs, it was time to go back..

Discouraging day for crabs so calling it a season, but great for the Lings.
Thanks Doneli and Al for your company and hope we can all gather next for Salmon in April.
No use writing about CJ being that he's not a member here :cyclop4lf: .

Nice catch. Going out Saturday to Bodega. What was the best depth and area? Looks like you guys used light tackle and swimbaits. Thanks
