Default Goleta Pier with Mom 11/25/2017

I took Mom fishing again and we had a slow day, three brown kelp rockfish and one good calico 14+ inches but we threw it back. We were bait fishing using cured mackerel that we caught in the spring. There were a few small smelt caught during the morning but mostly the small brown kelp rockfish off the west side of the pier in the kelp over the outfall pipe. The guys fishing the shore for halibut, perch and corbina looked like they were getting skunked, we saw nothing coming over the rail all morning.

Mom's 87 this year and still loves to get out fishing. My brother Tom (TINMAN) and his youngest son came down from San Jose for Thanksgiving and took her fishing on Tuesday and I have to be down in Lompoc again next week and I'll take her out again Saturday. So, she gets three fishing trips this month.

Three fishing trips in a month? Heck, she's doing way better than me, LOL.

I hope to be that well at 87....including having children who take me fishing.

Took Mom fishing again this morning, she was dressed and ready to go at 5:30 AM. We left Lompoc at 6:00 and got to Goleta pier by 0700. We caught 5 short calico and a dozen or more small brown kelp bass until about 9:30 when the bite turned off. I got one more brown kelp bass about 10:30 but that was it for the morning.

We left about Noon but the guys on the end of the pier were catching anchovies and mackerel pretty steadily on small hooks and baited sabiki rigs.

I've never caught an anchovy, other than scooping it out of the bait box, LOL.
