    Nobody wants to find Nick's bass hole.

    My bass hole got a little smaller and harder to find after the big ship in the fog adventure.

    The coho were nice and I'm glad I experienced the journey, but I'd do the Rock Fish all day long without a seconds hesitation. Nick's 10wt never felt like an overbearing stick and often times it would be bent to the hilt. Those things were beasts!

    Chris was incredible to fish with. He enjoyed running the boat and he also thanked us for letting him clean our fish! I'd fish with that swinging fool any day. What a great amount of knowledge that guy has.

    Chris's friend Tony was also a great host full of knowledge and he drank beer to boot. Great time on his boat!

    As always I enjoyed my time just hanging with Nick and I greatly appreciated the opportunity to fish out of his boat again.

    The only salt water experience I've ever had was fishing for those purple Largemouth. It was a blast! I hooked a fish nearly every cast, and my seven weight was just right for the little ones I was catching. I really wanted a Leopard shark, and spotted several on some perfect flats from a bluff. By the time I got down there the tide had dropped enough they had left.

    That's what I was thinking as I read Nick's report, I'd hit it just for the rock fish!

    Coho will always be my first love, but man the rockfish were awesome. Im looking to get back out there soon. If anyone wants to plan a run out there just hit me up.

    Fun trip even though the coho fishing was and still is really slow. I'd been thinking about eating king collars since I started planning this trip months ago and they were as good as I remembered.

    I'd rather be hooking adult chinook over black rockfish any day. Nice looking toad! I don't see a fly rod though.
