    Nice tube cheap yak

    091C010B-ECD0-4E4C-BD0C-66A69948ACF6.jpeg Photo two: The ocean was windless and flat as a lake until noon. Then it was like a wind-switch was flipped. Going out in AM was easy; returning in PM I got bounced around a bit. Even with braid, I can’t feel much when the wind pushes the yak so that the line’s not vertical. A lot more snags in the rocks and kelp, too.

    11” sculpin

    2DC5782B-6B6B-4A9F-BD71-68DBD5B664E0.jpeg Meaty brown rockfish.

    Made bait (two mackerels) and used them.

    Don’t even need a fish finder, just find the lobster traps.

    Nice catches. Is that a sculpin?
    That first fish has all sorts of stuff around the hook.

    Si, the second and third photos are of a sculpin.

    I made my own lures from hooks and girls’ hair scrunchies, chip bag linings, dog fur, rubber bands, feathers, etc. My sinkers are 5/8” rebar.
