Went with Troutmasta, our ladyfrineds and their family to Newport on Sunday for a four hour bottom fishing charter in Newport. Started at 7:30am in the bay and went out about 20 minutes before we started fishing. It seemed like our substitute captain couldn't find the hot spot right away so we moved around a lot for the first two hours. The farther south we went, the fishing got better. Near the end, we went just west of seal rock and everyone was pulling up doubles. Troutmasta cought a Ling and a quill back aka punk rock fish and I pulled up a monster sea bass. Troutmasta's girlfriend barely escaped the puke of a sea sick little girl, who then spent the rest of the trip on the railing. Great trip...I need a bigger freezer.
