Day 1 not so Tuna

Well, the weather in Newport has not been the most cooperative. We've had nice skies and no rain, but wind, wind, wind. 15-20 knots making it difficult to get out to the Tuna today. Since most of the locals wanted Tuna, we had a limited boat for Rockfishing today. Looks like it's down to one day now for the tournament. We are scheduled to go out first thing tommorrow morning as the predictions are for better weather. Wish us luck.  For now, day 1 was a warm up. Blackies, Ling Cods, a quillback rockfish and a couple of sculpin. All but one Ling cod where to small and released. The Quillback was the largest of the day weighing in at 4 and a half pounds. Here are some pictures of the days fishing. check out the full set here.
