On the home front the rockfish are biting. I took three 8-to-11 year-old boys out fishing for three hours yesterday and they caught their limits. Nathan Porter did better than that with his trip down to Ten Mile Beach. He caught his three halibut and returned four others in about three hours of trolling between Abbott's Lagoon and the north parking lot in 40'of water. The halibut were full of pinhead anchovies. Perhaps there will be something to fish for during the crab opener after all. This weekend the forecast calls for rain and big swell.
