Two nearshore trips produced nice fish.

Our morning trip ventured out in bumpy waters and the fish were biting steady. Due to a little sea sickness we decided to head into the bay to find calmer water but the bite was much slower. Our group wished to return to south rock area but winds were picking up and the fishing had slowed there too. We ended our morning trip with 3/4 limits of black and olive rockfish to 3lbs. Air was 55′ and water was 52′.

Our evening charter experienced a nice catch of jumbo vermilion rockfish (pacific red snapper) along with landing this gem of a rare and endangered black seabass which was released unharmed. Air was 60′ with water at 52′.
