We're going to need an after action report!

Being on the water has to be better than in the heat or smoke even if the fishing wasn't great.

We went on the Coral Sea out to Santa Rosa Island with Bill and his son Andy. Nice and cool out there with the building wind starting to blow. Really fun fishing with all the regular Denizens of the deep making an appearance. I ended up with a fat limit of rockfish and a couple lings. Bill caught a huge red snapper and a fat sack as well. His son Andy had a bit of a rough day but got some time at the rail and sacked some nice fish.
I fished a 3.5 oz jig all day and abstained from bait,great way to fish if you have A.D.D and very productive. Unfortunately my Iphone wasn't cooperating so no pictures. Bill took some, I'm sure he'll post a few later.
All in all a great day, Thanks for giving me a shout Bill!

Bottom fishing w/the jig definitely more interactive than squid strips. Thnx for the report

3 hr drive home, packed the 14 lbs of filets Andy and I caught, threw the rods and reels into the shower and cleaned up.  Too tired to post pictures, we got up at 0200 hrs for the drive up to Santa Barbara fished all day with some great people.  Lots of quality fish coming over the rail, Sheridan pulled a really nice Ling but was beat out at the Jackpot by another big Ling.  My son Andy caught his first Ling today and some really good rockfish.  Not sure what the official fish count was but everyone went home with limits.  As said before a mixed bag of fish, including lings, sand dabs, chuckleheads, joker fish, salmon grouper, blue bass (really tasty!) , mackerel, red rock fish, and a boat load of white fish.  Sheridan isn't being less than truthful when he said he jigged all day, I never saw him dip into the squid bucket or anchovy trough.  

Had a great time, even Andy who was green in the gills had fun.......pictures to follow...Bill

As promised, here are some pictures from yesterday's trip abord the Coral Sea.....

As we left the harbor at 0700 hrs the skies had a reddish hue from the fires burning east of Santa Barbara.....reminds me of the old sailor's poem of "Red skies in morning, sailors take warning"

The bluffs outside the harbor sure looked pretty...

Unfortunately no "action" pictures, I'm kind of bad about taking them during the action....but here's Andy and myself with a large rockcod and his first ling cod.  I didn't catch my first ling cod until last year and this young man caught his at 19.  

And his sack full of fish....

That picture doesn't do justice to the size of that red snapper, I do a fair amount of party boat rock fishing, that's the biggest one I've seen in a long time

You must really like rockfish to drive from Crestline all the way to Santa Barbara for a 3/4 day trip.  At least you done did good!

Im kind of burned out on the L.A. And Orange County boats, seems to be just tourist traps.  Knowing Sheridan was in S.B and a buddy from high school likes to fish there, annnnnndddd the wife likes the antique stores there it was not a hard decision. Plus S.B. is just another hour further and the quality of fish is better too.  Might try CISCO's or Ventura next time though, which is about 45 mins closer.....Bill
