Coral Sea 3/4 day 8.23.22

Capt Merit
We spent today dodging the wind and seas, hitting up Santa Rosa Island reefs early before the wind got up. Fishing was great, despite the current and swell being a little screwy. Anglers put on 200 nice rockfish before it got too bumpy. From there we headed east into much shallower, more sheltered waters and put the anchor down, looking for giant whitefish and a nicer ride. We got both, plus a few more rockfish. One guy baited with anchovies by mistake and hooked two barracuda at once. One got free and the other he bagged. Very nice Island fishing.
25 anglers
218 rockfish
120 ocean whitefish
5 lingcod
1 barracuda
1 rock sole

These guys are great! I had an amazing day fishing with them. The captain got us on the fish, once the fish were on the whole crew was on point getting people where the needed to be, and getting fish on the boat. Epic day, amazing crew!
