    California Dawn 12/8/2017 - Epic Trip!

    My buddy and I made it out on Friday on board the California Dawn out of Berkeley. It was a crab/rockfishing combo trip, and we started out at the Farallon Islands.

    The rockfishing bite was wide open, and we had the best quality rockfish I have ever seen on one of these party boats. I jigged a white 12 once bar all day, and we found many species of rockfish including quillback, boccacio, starry, yellowtail, copper, blue, and vermillion. My buddy got a sanddab on a shrimp fly, and I was able to use if for bait and muscle up two nice lings on a trap rig. In the end we had five lings and about 25 rockfish.

    The crabbing hasn't been great this year, but the size is really good. We ended up with five big dungeness crabs apiece.

    The deckhand, Adam, was the best deckhand I've ever seen on one of these boats. The fishing and crabbing went very smoothly with Adam and relief skipper Brian Chan at the helm.

    The tide was really small, and the swell was small as well. We had a bit of a northeast breeze and wind wave in the morning, but the afternoon laid down nicely when we pulled the crab pots.

    We were treated to a beautiful view of the city before the fishing even began...



    ...and the iconic Golden Gate a few minutes later.
