    We had 5 grabs and 4 landed, on the opener. Friday had 1 undersized released. Tuesday the 5th had 4 grabs, lost 2, broke off 1, but was able to land a 28" keeper. Will be out for Halibut on Friday, and if we're not lucky with the Butts will jig for some Lings.

    Nice work Paul. Sounds like some good fun. I am thinking I may go back out and give it another go tomorrow if the forecast holds. Pretty mild tides which should make things easier for me.

    Pick the hour before and after the tide change. I like running a small electric trolling motor on the Ling boat, helps correct the boat, and keeps things quiet. I have a drift sock, but prefer not to use it.
