"Well Worth the Wait"
Well the Rock Hound has been trying to get back on the
water just about every weekend sense January. The weather
seems to be at it's worse come Saturday for the pass 7 weeks.
We arrived at the Triangles at about 7 AM, dropped anchor
and lines in. Within about 5 min. Chip gets the first bite and
it's a rod bender, his 11 lb 10 oz Tog goes in the fish box.
The bite was steady all morning, from tog to black sea bass
and yes dog fish as well. This was Tommy's first tasted of salt water fishing, he did very well and can't wait to get back out.
Chip was having a good day fishing, seems no matter what
side of the boat he fished on, was the HOT side.
Then later in the day with about 5 min. left to fish, Chip's
rod bends over again. Amazing another paper for chip, this
one even bigger than his morning paper. It weighed in at
12 lbs 8 oz, Chips 3 fish limit was over 30 lbs today.
Our mate today Brandon, dropped a rod down right
where Chip was fishing and gets rewarded.
Brandon has been fishing his whole young life (from the age of 3) and this was his first Tog paper 24 1/2" C&R. Mates fish a lot but never get to fish much, congats Brandon.
All an all it was a good day on the water, lets just hope
the weather keeps giving us the chance to get out there
and have more days like this one.

Departing at 4:30 am from Salt Ponds Marina, heading
to the Triangles. This is a Tog Charter, we will return
