8/15/12 — Today is the last day of the rockfish season. Why? I’ve been fishing here for 27 years and I cannot come up with a reason. The ocean out front of Fort Bragg is healthier than I’ve ever seen. There is no reason for the closure. The bite was odd today. Half the boat did excellent while the other half did not. We ended up with just over half limits with a dozen lingcod. We fished down south by Mendocino. Great water conditions. The seas were calm. Showing off some of there great catch from left to right are; Bryn and Kelly Goedde-matthews from Davis, Ca. and Aiden Plank from Roseville. Nice fish!
