great running into Gulfstream out on the salt, we had a plastic navy out at Simpson Reef, at least 6 of us on kayaks, it was like the ocean had invited us to a 'fill the freezer' event.
ling bite was solid, I think the best among the kayakers was 34", I released several near 30" and a cabby, took home a 27" (7#) and 23" (hook tore it's belly), the 3 rockfish I got were loners near the bottom chasing squid, not many schools. The lingcod and cabbies were into herring.

All 3 ocean crabs, right at 6.1875", full marks to the commercial guys out there releasing any under 6.25"!
