Lots of Rockfish and Triple Digit Crab Numbers

by Sunrise Sportfishing

Howdy yall, it's Trejan on the Sunrise again. Today, we had a 5 hour fishing and crabbing trip with 18 passengers. After we left the harbor at after 6:30, we went north for about 40 minutes before we got to our first fishing spot. We didn't set out any crab pots on the way there because we rebaited them on our trip yesterday. When we got to our fishing spot, we got 5 fish on our first drift. We then caught 2 on the second, and 1 on the third. Fishing stayed pretty consistent again with us catching 1-4 rockfish a drift. We also caught 6 nice looking Lingcod to go along with our rockfish. After about 4 hours of fishing, it was time for us to go crabbing. We had our best crabbing day of the year today. We ended up with 117 crab with 18 crabbing so everyone got over 6 crab a person. After crabbing, we finished up our trip by heading back into the harbor. During the trip, the wheather was good but the fog was a little pretty dense. The ocean was a lot bumpier than usual but it started to calm down halfway through the trip. Overall, it was great day for fishing and a phenomenal day for crabbing.

If you would like to go fishing with us please BOOK ONLINE or call (541) 765-2345.
