So Im young (22) and bought my first ocean boat in november. 23' svendsen marine open skiff. Its 8 Feet wide with 42" sides. I spent all spring building a trailer and outfitting the boat so Ive only been out the last 4 weekends so far. All I have for electronics is a humminbird 597 ci hd di and a garmin 62st with blue charts. I have a yamaha 70 hp motor and a yamaha 25 hp kicker. Nothing real spectacular. So far ive been out of whittier, seward, deep creek, and homer. In whittier all I got was a gallon of shrimp. Seward a few salmon. Deep creek one 15 and one 25 pound halibut and homer 8 cod and 3 halibut with the largest only being 42 pounds. Imnot complaining Ive had a blast but what can I do better. Im fishing herring, octupus, squid, and salt water gulp for bait. Looking for trenches and drops off. Fishing in structure for rock fish. I normally only go 30 miles out. Do I need to go farther? Ive read a lot of posts here but just want some direct answers. Like go farther fish this rig. Im not asking coordinates just some pointers for a rookie. Any thing helps its ALL new. Anything youve learned over the years.
