3.5.16 3/4 Day Island Trip: "And that's why they call it fishing folks"
Today was a tough one for us at Santa Rosa Island! We traveled far up the island & fished hard until late in the day, grinding out 40 reds, 54 rockfish, & 7 lingcod for our 23 anglers. Metered plenty of good fish but the big looping swell out there had things a bit too stirred up & made for painfully tough day of fishing...
Regardless, my crew & I had a great time spending the day with our passengers & hope they will all return sometime in the future & fish with us again. On a different note, thin-wire circle hooks, when fishing double dropper loops, work significantly better than traditional j-hooks for fishing rockfish in the deeper water.
We are shut down for this Sunday & Monday due to stormy weather but hopefully we will get back to fishing shortly thereafter. Call Sea Landing at 805-963-3564 to inquire about making reservations on upcoming Stardust & Coral Sea fishing trips.
