Today was our premier half day morning Rockfish trip and it went great. Deckhand Alfredo and 12 anglers on deck landed 116 fish! Nice Yellowtails, Olives, fat Blues and a spattering of Gophers and Starry Rockfish. Half of the fishers were young kids out for their first boat trip and they did awesome. I’m very excited about these short trips as an alternative for new anglers or folks who want to go fishing without waking up before the crack of dawn. Sleep in, catch some fish and get done at noon. There’s definitely worse ways to spend half a day. Also, there were several inquiries about whales. We just so happened to come across 4 lunge feeding Humpbacks who put on a great show for our intermission.
