Getting ready for a full day of fishing, brings to me, all the excitement and anticipation of heading out into the creeks, and catching fish. Like an adventure of Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn,  is  how we try to enjoy the summer and fishing.

As we started out, Norah was asking all the right questions, what is the tide doing, where are we going to fish first, what points we were going to work, I was proud of her. 

Looking for any signs of life.

The bites started out slow, until the tide started to ebb. There was no shortage mid-size rockfish, 18 inch to 22 inches. The were a few perch, 6 inch to 11 inches, no speckled trout, and lots of small hardhead, 10 inch to 12 inch range. We did catch several Atlantic Stingrays, and a couple blunt nose stingrays. 

A lot of 18 inch rockfish were caught and released.  June 7, 2015
