View Full Version : Santa Cruz - Rockfish and Halibut 7/7/09

Rented a skiff from Santa Cruz boat rentals on Tuesday. Water was nice in the morning making the rockfishing pleasant. Got blown off the reefs around noon and switched over to halibut. Caught some nice smelt and perfect 6" jack mackeral for live bait and started drifting. Got one bite and one landed. Went 28" and about 10 pounds. http://i498.photobucket.com/albums/rr350/kimochou/IMG00040-20090707-1708.jpg

Nice Hali!

Thanks Stephen. I would have called but it was real last minute. (We decided at midnight the night before). The boat rental is a total deal. You go online and print a $10 off coupon making the rental only $65 for the day. I'll call you on the next trip. We got some nice rockfish too. A couple went about 16" and a couple pounds.
