Jeff and halibut and ling
Here’s Jeff with his first halibut ever – plus a nice ling cod. He was fishing channel island swim baits off the cement wall off Soquel point – just at edge of kelp bed. Jeff happens to also be today’s highliner with biggest fish! Congratulations Jeff!

    Speaking of firsts, I went fishing with my mom for the first time on sunday and we did real good, despite the lack of live bait. My mom caught her first couple rockfish and also let go two nice lingcod that were barely legal. We finished up with 7 decent brown rockfish and a 7# halibut, trolling around the new bouy. Ed took pics, but I guess this fourm is for rentals only. Mom was pretty stoked to have her picture taken……..ON WISCONSIN!!!!

    Dude – so sorry – it got lost in the shuffle. I’ll be sure we post that first thing this morning.
