4-17-08 DC Rockfish report with PICS

Was on the water by 6:15, but had difficulty catching herring.  They were not hitting and they waited until the sun came up.  Finally got 3 lines out by 7am.  My old baitcaster goes down and the battle is on.  After about 3 minutes.........POW..........rod broke off at the handle.......this is what I had left in my hand.

Oh well, it was an old rod.  Next rod goes down and this nice 36" - 23 pound beauty is soon released.

Ended up catching 4 rocks, all between 35-37" and each 22-23 pounds.

All these fish were fat and gave a great fight with lots of screaming drag.  Going back tomorrow morning to do it again.  smile

Never did see Striper1 on the water.
