I fished the Pacific Grove rocks from 8:00-12:30 with shrimp and pileworm and caught two 8" striped perch, a 4" and a 8" kelpfish along with the striped Perch that won me the junior division. Here are the pics.

Man, that is so crazy. I've never caught a kelpfish. And I have fished that area a LOT.
Congrats on the win. And thanks for the pics.

you need small hooks to get them, I have caught a couple every time I visit the area.

Great job minnow!

How were the conditions? I wanted to fish that with my daughter, but things just didn't work out.

What was the winning purse?

Good report, MM. [smiley=thumbsup.gif]

I've never even seen a kelp fish. What do you do with them? Throw them back or pan fry them?
