The sun rose from the east with a fluorescent orange glow. We loaded the boat and headed on our way. Captain Mark called for a bounty of 30 Rockfish. We raced to fill the boat with the fish and before we knew it we had our captain's request. The sun is still rising over head and the neon sky is turning into a more passive light blue. We moved towards Cape Lookout in search of Salmon. The trail of salmon was at first dry but within an hour and a half we got our first bite. It was a smiley. The boat regained hope. A few hours later, and every one had brought a salmon into the boat. As if the fish catching wasn't enough, we still brought in 6 limits of crab. What a special August morning.
