    Name:
    Kyle
    Today 9/9/2017 I had the pleasure of fishing with Rook on this boat.

    The early day started out trolling, which did not result in any hits. Next we went on to bass fishing, where one nice bass was picked up a on 5 inch swim-bait. The bite being a bit slow, we moved on to bottom fishing with small pieces of shrimp. The waves were a bit rocky in the beginning of the day, initially preventing us from being able to anchor down. Once we did and the sun came out it was fish on, we caught dozens of fish including rockfish, sheepies, and whitefish. Many of the fish were released due to size restrictions. The bait used was shrimp pieces on reverse dropper loops. Finally we trolled were we picked up a bonie.

    I shared a photo of the fish I took home. I wanted to thank Rook for allowing me the privilege to come with him on his boat. I had a blast and learned a ton.

    Glad you could join me Kyle. Even though the bite was not what it has been recently, at least we got on some "eaters" and didn't come home smelling of skunk! Even though the size of some of the fish were short I actually ended up with a PB sheepy at a solid 22".....couple of nice fillets for the grill and also a toad Calico rounded out my morning.

    Keep working with that bait caster. Without a doubt you will backlash the hell out of it more times than you will ever admit, but you were casting that thing really well for only having it a few days! Welcome to the West coast!
