Carter really understood the hunt . I picked him up from the Super Island dock and headed to the first choice spot . After half an hour of no bites and not much for clues , we picked up lines and moved a little way . Ah , stuff on the sounder . Herring , and dogfish , maybe salmon. Trolling , trolling . Potential looks good , and then, thump, thump, yes , there's the bite . We stayed and searched around the little islands and had pretty darn good action. As usual we took measurements and tissue samples . All alone .
