Oh, he had a grand time! The other person that signed up to go out didn't show up, so that left Hubby and 3 other men to waite on him hand & foot! (bait the hook, take the fish off the hook...)
All of the men caught their limit, but in particular, hubby caught 8 sea bass, 2 ling cods, 2 rock fish, and a 50-60 lb. halibut that he had to release because halibut season ended a few weeks prior.
That was as far out of the water as he was allowed to take him.
The guys emptied their crab pots at sea as well, brought in 40 crabs & probably let another 40 go. We brought home 17!
