    I played hooky from work yesterday to do some chores and go fishing. I needed to get paint to finish my summer honey-do project, paining the house. It turned out the ocean was flat so I decided to bring the kayak and try to catch some lingcod and rockfish around the near shore rocks.
    Driving by some marshes on the way I saw a surprising number of early arrival ducks. Normally don’t see much till October here.
    Got the paint and headed for the beach launch. Wasn’t as flat as I wanted but made it out and back no major mishaps (last time I go rolled in the surf coming in).
    Hard to believe here in overpopulated California one can go fish the ocean and not be able to see another boat or human even sitting only 300 yards from shore. Ended with 2 lingcod and a rockfish.
    Nice day near the end of a poor summer for fishing. 4223EE0B-F16D-4ED0-914B-DFDC3B09F306.jpeg 96EBD702-8D35-42AE-BEF0-17AA59ED5791.jpeg E0E415FE-6ECB-4A1F-862A-9266D09E9039.jpeg

    When I was a little bitty boy
    My grandmother bought me a cute little toy
    Silver bells hanging on a string
    She told me it was my ding-a-ling-a-ling, oh
    My ding-a-ling, my ding-a-ling
    I want to play with my ding-a-ling
    My ding-a-ling, my ding-a-ling
    I want to play with my ding-a-ling
    When mama took me to Sunday school
    They tried to teach me the golden rule
    Every time the choir would sing
    I would sit there playin' with my ding-a-ling-a-ling
    My ding-a-ling, my ding-a-ling
    I want to play with my ding-a-ling
    My ding-a-ling, my ding-a-ling
    I want to play with my ding-a-ling
    When pa started me to grammar school
    I found a place in the best of youth
    And every time the bell would ring
    They would catch me playin' with my ding-a-ling-a-ling
    My ding-a-ling, my ding-a-ling
    I want to play with my ding-a-ling
    My ding-a-ling, my ding-a-ling
    I want to play with my ding-a-ling
    Once I was climbing the garden wall
    Oh and I had an awful fall
    I fell so hard, I heard bells ring
    But I never let go of my ding-a-ling-a-ling
    My ding-a-ling, my ding-a-ling
    I want to play with my ding-a-ling
    My ding-a-ling, my ding-a-ling
    I want to play with my ding-a-ling
    I remember the girl next door
    We used to play house on the kitchen floor
    She would be the queen, I would be the king
    Together we played with my ding-a-ling-a-ling
    My ding-a-ling, my ding-a-ling
    I want to play with my ding-a-ling
    My ding-a-ling, my ding-a-ling
    I want to play with my ding-a-ling
    This here song it ain't so sad
    To those of you who never had
    Silver bells hanging on a string
    So you could play with your ding-a-ling
    My ding-a-ling, my ding-a-ling
    I want to play with my ding-a-ling
    My ding-a-ling, my ding-a-ling
    Oh, come on, now everybody sing now
    My ding-a-ling, my ding-a-ling
    I want to play with my ding-a-ling
    My ding-a-ling, my ding-a-ling
    I want to play with my ding-a-ling once more.

    Thats a fun day of fishing right there. We're back into our deepwater ling fishery here. Open from the beach all the way to Japan. Lings are my favorite eating. I've caught them in 10' of water and 900' of water, and every depth in between. Awesome fish.

    My favorite is Ling cod too.

    I usually eat it once or twice a week.

    Funny, a rockfish in MD is a striped bass.
