Default half moon bay, california - 6/10/2019

took khanh, bob and kevin out for rockfish and lings yesterday. we fished out of half moon bay, ran down to san gregorio, fished in 60 to 100 feet of waster. lots of big rockfish, cabs and ling cod, the blue ling that i caught was a hitchhiker. he grabbed a rockfish that i was bringing up and started heading to the bottom. i eased him up half way and he spit it out, so i dropped down immediately again. he grabbed a second time and let go when he was half way up, so i dropped down again. he grabbed it a third time, then leg go when i had him half way up, so i dropped down a FOURTH time!!!! this time, on the run down, the hook pulled out of the rockfish and caught the ling. i did not know at the time that he was actually hooked, so i eased him up slowly, ever so gingerly until he was up at the surface. khanh swung with the gaff and almost knocked him off, but the drag was backed way off so that the hook would not pull. i have to ease him up again, khanh stuck him this time and we had dinner!
