One of my outdoor writer/photographer friends was supposed to come and fish with me for a feature he is writing about sea bass. I suggested that with the weather being marginal that we postpone if his deadline would allow. That was fine and then he asked about rockfish. Yea, we will be going after rockfish so Ken Perrotte drove down from northern Virginia somewhere and we headed out to catch some big fish yesterday. We drifted eels near the Concrete Ships and we caught some big fish. Ken caught his two largest rockfish to date. His biggest was 46 inches long and weighed 41 pounds on the boat scale before he released it. I caught a 44-inch fish which was released. We kept a couple of lesser fish for Ken to take back home with him and while I was photographing Ken and his first-ever citation rockfish, Charles Southall was hooked up to another fish. I kept making him get out of the way during the photos. After Ken released his fish, we started to pay attention to what Charles was doing. What he was doing was fighting a monster rockfish. Charles' fish was 52.5 inches long and weighed in at 57 pounds. It jumps to 1st place in the Bishop Fishing Supply/PSWSFA Rockfish Tournament which runs through the end of the month. It gives the rest of us something to shoot for. Ken Perrotte went home with some fresh rockfish, a lot of photos, and plenty to write about for another of his stories.
