Limits of Rockfish and Crab!

by Sunrise Sportfishing

Howdy yall, it's Trejan on the Sunrise. Today, we had a 5 hour fishing and crabbing trip with 15 passengers. After we left the harbor at after 6:30, we went north for about 30 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 at the end of our trip yesterday. The wheather has been nice and the sea has been calm so we have been repeatedly rebaiting. We have also been getting triple digit crab numbers for the last week so we kept on using the same spot. When we got to our fishing spot, we got 2 fish on our first drift. We then caught 3 on the second, and 5 on the third. Fishing stayed consistent with us catching 1-5 rockfish a drift. This happened for the whole trip until we eventually limited out. After that, we had to go crabbing. Crabbing was amazing with us ending up with 110 crab again. Since there was only 9 people crabbing, we got our limits. After crabbing, we finished up our trip by heading back into the harbor. During the trip, the wheather was good and the fog started to go away too. The ocean was nice for the whole trip as well. Overall, it was good day for fishing and another amazing day for crabbing.
