"If you ain't first you are last." (Reese Bobby)
Matt and his crew were both, as they were our first and last charters of the year.
Since tuna fishing sucks, our guys made the smart choice and decided to go bottom fishing.
It started out slow and picked up at the bottom of the tide.
Pretty soon mal de mer reduced our crew to 4 anglers.
Clark had told me about the "Ling Master" as Greg, the big guy, had absolutely crushed it on our first charter of the year.
Everyone caught fish, but the Ling Master crushed it- at one point he was asking me for pointers and I told him that I wanted him teach me what he was doing.
We ended up with limits of rock fish and big lings.
A great ending to an otherwise shit year.
RIP 2021 and RIP Captain Clark.
