I'm back from spending the weekend up in Haig-Brown country, courtesy of the fine folks up at Painters. Had a blast trolling hootchies and drifting with the tide for springs down about 200 feet in 500 feet of water...Crazy thing was, we nailed quite a few ling cod...I thought they lived right on the bottom :?: ...Anyhow the action was good with a steady stream of bent rods through out the day. One thing's for sure...I need to get better at that salt water hook set... I did battle with a nice fat seal waiting for a free meal under our boat..Of course I lost, and was given the head as a consolation prize... :shock: At least the rod didn't break....I can see why you salt water boys are such die hards.. :roll: A total blast...Can't wait to do it again..
