I was using a jigging iron with a soft plastic bait as a teaser, this little gopher could not resist the iron.
This China rock fish was beautifully mottled
This kelp rock fish liked my poliminner
Even with half its tail missing
I got my first double involving a lingcod
Caught a twenty inch cabezon
The vermilion seem to like the Poliminner as well
I ended up with a nice stringer
Willy making his landing
It was nice getting out of the sweltering valley and feeling the cool coastal breeze. I wound up catching four ling cod, three cabezon, one red vermilion, one kelp rock fish, one treefish, seven gophers rockfish, and one China rock fish. I can't ask for much more. The other nice thing is I only lost one jig and used three soft plastic baits total. That is not a bad rate if you ask me.
