Sunday July 29th, 2012– We did a 3/4 day trip up north looking for bigger and better fishing. We found just that. The ocean was calmer than down close to home port. The sun was shinning and the winds were calm. Oh yea, the fish were biting too! We ended up 16 miles north of Fort Bragg off of Abalone Pt. in about 70 to 90 feet of water. It wasn’t a wide open bite until towards the end. We ended up with limits of Lings and limits of rockfish for 13 anglers. We fished light tackle. 15 to 20 lb test line with spinning reels and baitcasters with 3 oz jigs and a teaser hook above. The lings were snapping so good, we were catching them two at a time. Great fun with great people! The biggest ling was 17 pounds caught by John Wilkens out of Branscomb Ca. Runner up was a 14 pound ling landed by Roy Wade also from Branscomb. Great job everyone! Fish-On!!
