Left the docks at 7:45 with 3 passengers. Threw 5 pots in the ocean, and went fishing. Weather was nice in the morning then got cold. Ocean was decent as well.

Set up on a reef and started fishing. Very slow. That was the phrase for the day. Slow for rockfish. Moved at least to 5 different reefs. Lingcod were slow until about 10:00 am and then they lit up. We threw back at least 20 shorts. Ended up with full limits of ling cod, including a a limit for myself (Ling Cod caught by me were given to customers at the docks)

Out of 5 crab pots we managed only 5 legal crabs, lots of females, which is a good sign
