Fishing on the Superfish out of Loch Lomand...

Ran across these old pictures of fishing on the Superfish back in July 1983. Theses were pot luck trips — striped bass, halibut, lingcod and whatever else we could catch (sometimes salmon). That day I caught an eighteen pound halibut and an eight pound salmon.

No pictures of you Ken? I guess you didn't trust any of those guys to take your picture without dropping it into the bay? About the era when I finished high school and would start to take my yearly trek on the "Huck Finn" with Jay Yokomizo as a deckhand and Art Roby as the skipper.

I never did bay trips as I would catch striper and halibut at Berkeley Pier; always Farallon Islands for rockfish/potluck during August.
I recognize some of that classic gear from that era in the photos: I see a 113 HS, a Newell, and a Calstar rod. I even see the 1 guy with what looks like a pier fishing spinning rod!

So, is the name of the rock a secret? Lol
