A beautiful day. I got 3 limits and tossed back about 13 Jumbos . One missing pots that I searched for over an hour and one poached pot that was way off my mark. I pulled my pots and brought home.

For future outing, Wx permitting, I'll bring and drop 4 pots to soak for 3-4hrs while rock fishing then call it a season by mid December.


Got an invite to crew on a buddies boat yesterday where we got 4 limits in 4 pots. Buddy re-baited and dropped 5 pots and brought home 5 pots meaning that we had to toss a lot back in the drink. He decide to band the claw on his limits at Bodega then steamed them at his home. Said it prevented losing any legs because of the banded claws.
