Our 6/19 trip had to be rescheduled to 6/26 due to poor weather conditions. It was very fortunate that we changed the date because today was was a perfect day to be out on the ocean. We were greeted with very little wind and virtually no swell. T-shirts were the dress for the day. Capt. Tom Mattusch and deckhand Jake Carrier put us on the fish and kept us on them. We ended up with just about limits of rockfish and one king salmon. The salmon came with 2 others that turned out to be silvers that we put back. The kids and mentors worked hard and had lots of fun.
We were fortunate to have a group of mentors that were some of the finest that we have had on a trip. The mentors were Mel Kon, Baja Bev Seltzer, Dave Doubledee, William Odum, Bill Doo, and Swiss Joe. I, Richard Kent, filled out the list and was there just to help where needed. Prizes were given to the kid with the biggest fish, the kid that caught the most fish, and the kid selected by the whole group as the bravest on the trip.
