I hooked into a nice rockfish monday night, it caught my eye down along some boulders as it came out of the shadows, against the clear sandy bottom. I took off my baby patchinko and popped a tiny xlayer with a belly weighted hook, strangely enough the fish just coasted back along the boulders out of sight. Down went the xlayer and it was hammered within seconds of hitting the bottom. SM bent like a question mark against a tight drag, back came up the xlayer, mangled. HRF? quite possibly, but I know where he lives so will def knock for him again soon.
