Bottom fishing

All of our boats out this morning and all of our boats were doing the same thing at the same spot.  We all ventured up off the Lincoln City reefs and we all got into the massive rockfish bite going on up there.  All the boats got there limits on the rockfish and they were all really nice sized specimens as well.  Not a lot of variety as they were almost all Black rockfish but they are a “real kick” to catch on really light tackle.  Some Lingcod were caught but when the rockfish bite like they were this morning hard for the “Ling’s” to beat them to the hooks.


Again…. fabulous !!
