Sounds like you really had to work for it. What is that, 5-6 miles out? Congrats on the 3rd place finish, that Tahoe trip sounds sweet.

The charm of fishing is that it is the pursuit of what is elusive but attainable, a perpetual series of occasions for hope.  ~John Buchan

Maybe 4.5 or 5 miles?

Had a blast at TRW8.  Challenging conditions and really tough bite.  We took first with a modest 6 fish stringer of 4 rockfish over 20” and 2 greenlings just under 15”.

After fishing trinidad earlier and slow reports from prefishing our plan was to only target rockfish.  And try to put in 3 species of large rockfish and then target greenlings.   We stuck to the plan and it paid off.  Barely.  Lol

We waded through tons of rockfish but all we could come up with were limits of 20-21”ers. Once rockfish were on stringer we lightened up tackle and had a double hookup on greenlings.  Nothing special but every fish was solid so on a tough bite we fished it out till the end and hoped for the best. 

Fisheducator peddled thru knee pain and sea sickness and scored our biggest rockfish.

Humboldt Hookers (Doug and Brandy) 3rd place
Sharkbait (Kenny and Garret) 2nd Place

Kenny also won the side bet with a 25” 11lb cab

Thank Pacout and Crew

Another great event hosted by Pacific Outfitters! What an awesome time with great people and great weather. It was a tough bite, still many delivered quality fish. I was lucky enough to have Howard Kirk-aka-Surfingdude as my partner and we did well enough to place 4th overall out of 50 teams and were also lucky enough to catch the biggest fish for the tournament, a hefty 33" ling, which by the way is kinda small by Trinidad standards: smt003
Anyhow a really chill event so don't miss out on this great venue next year!
