    Been working too much lately and decided to try and hit the white sea bass Bite when the Pac Dawn started getting em. I've been on a few trips this year and struck out on exotics. Decided to hit them up on a Tuesday-Wed overnight trip.

    We get to Rosa and I get up early and get my line in the water around 3am. Im the only one in the water with my rod in the rod holder and clicker on. 3:30 am click click click zzZZZZZZ FISH ON!!! Quickly wound in a 17lbr and everyone starts fishing! :rockon:

    Bite slows for a bit, but comes in waves of 3-6 fish at a time. Around 4:30 Judy lands her PB at 46lbs on the digi...looked everybit of 50 :dunno: maybe my scale sucks...

    I end up catching 3 total and thought it would be wise to stop fishing, or to only hook and hand...its ok , time to record video!

    Easy limits by 6:30 am and we're off rock fishing in grease calm weather.

    Finally the overnight fleet is getting em! Cant wake up for a full day ride..so tiring.

    See the Mirage and looks like Erin and Summer are on the boat. I even watched and recorded Andrew landing a fat halibut from the Dawn.

    Vdiggy got one, on a hand off!! But he did land a pig Cab Driver @ 9lbs
    Let the pics and video do the talking... :beerbang:
