Discover Angling took 18 disadvantaged kids(from the Sunnyvale PAL) and their counselors out rockfishing on Sunday. We brought 7 expert fisherman as mentors to work with kids. Capt Mike and deckhand Donovan did a great job putting us on the fish and helping the kids land their catch. We ended up with 200 rockfish and 3 lings for 29 people. We also hooked a salmon while rockfishing and let him go.
On the way in Capt Mike put out 5 salmon rolling rods and we hooked 3 salmon in 15 minutes right outside the harbor. Unfortunately 2 got off but one did go home with the lucky kid that brought it in.
We would like to mention the mentors that volunteered for this outing:
RSK (that’s me)
Thanks to all.
Our next kids trip is scheduled for 10/21/17.
