Rockfish Saturday and Sunday

We spent a cold and windy weekend looking for rockfish. Saturday, we ran up the coast 40 NM from Rudee Inlet. Water temperatures did go up after we got past the mouth of the bay. There were a lot of birds up there. We caught one, little striper. We were at Hog Island which is the area of a good bite this week and I think some other boats up there did better than we did. Charles Southall was down at Coralla. They had a lot of birds and bait but they did not catch a fish. On Sunday, we started to head down south towards that bait, stopping and looking around along the way. At False Cape, we found some fish marks on the fish finder. No birds or bait. It was hard to stay on them without bird help. Small pods of fish moving around. We just trolled around and tried to stay on them when we would stumble across a little school. We had about a dozen bites and caught 8 fish. The largest fish was 45.5 inches long. It was caught by 16-year-old, Christian Conover, who released the fish after photographs. This was Christian's largest rockfish to date and his first rockfish citation.
