    Had a rare opening in my hectic schedule & coincidently
    On the opening day Of the Rockfish opener...!!

    Quickly logged onto CISCo's website & saw that the Mirage had
    Openings on their chartered overnight trip. Called & reserved my spot..!!

    SAWEEEET...!!

    Got to the landing @ 7:30, signed in & boarded.
    Got my favorite bunk & scratched this lotto ticket in the galley
    for $30...!!

    All the signs of an EPIC trip were already showing.

    Without going Into extreme detail ( I'm just too damn lazy & busy today )

    WE WACKED THEM...!!! Mostly fished in 120' of water, and a couple drifts in 240' for easy limits. I was the HOT stick on the boat & showing NO mercy...!!
    Caught a couple of Anglers Limits so we could go back to the shallows & fill the sacks w/ whitefish.

    I caught all my targets, Limits of Lings, limits of Reds, whitefish & Sheephead..!!

    I caught em on the fresh dead squid, 5" BH Swimbait , & the Iron...!!! WHAT A BLAST...!!

    Great day on the water, glass conditions, t-shIrt & shorts weather, great group of anglers, epic rockfishing on the best sport fishing vessel & the best crew on the west coast

    Looks like another great Mirage trip. Hooked into some nice Lings, Reds, and Sheeps...very cool.

    Only problem I have with reading the Charter reports is the FOOD pics. There's no way I'm not having a burger for lunch now. With Bacon!

    Thanks for report and pics.
