Last weekend I went fishing in the Santa Barbara channel with my son Brian. We each caught 10 Rockfish (Red Snapper).
It was an early morning – up at 5:00am and down to the harbor to leave at 7:00am. We arrived at the fishing grounds (mid-channel out from El Capitan) around 9:30am and had to go deep – 250 feet to find the fish. We had our limit by noon and were back about 2:30pm. Brian won the jackpot for biggest catch of the trip.
This was so much fun. Got a bit of a sunburn and an excellent father and son day. We cooked them Cajun style – blackened with a little red pepper, lots of lemon. Soooo Good.
Getting on the ocean changes Santa Barbara. It must be seen from the water to be fully appreciated.
