Rocky Point Marin Coast Chinook [pic]

These Chinook Salmon (aka King Salmon) were caught by a by the husband and wife team of Mr. and Mrs. Rick Mars aboard the Sea Turtle Sport Fishing (story below) 

Rick Mars Salmon 

Rick Mars and his Wife are the anglers in the picture. During the summer months, Rick goes out on the my boat, The Sea Turtle, as a regular especially when the fishin' gets hot.

I remember that was a Wednesday a couple years ago off...  We were fishing off Rocky Point along the Marin coastline. The weather was perfect during that July and the ocean was calm with no wind and blue skies. Two party boats were working the area Skipper Jimmy Robertson's The Outer limits and Captain Jacky Douglas's Wacky Jacky. On Wednesdays, Jacky calls the Chronicle to give a up date on the fishing and up to that point in the week the fishing had been a little slow.  Needless to say a good news is what we were hoping for when it was time for the Chronicle call-in...

We three where circling the area and both of the Party boat Skippers had a few fish aboard.  I couldn't get a strike for hours, patience is the game, then it was my turn, the Mars family caught both of these 30lb fish within minutes. The best show that I never got on film was another decent Salmon that was lost... when a Great White showed up!!! It was a awesome sight when the big shark exploded the surface and inhaled the fish! 

Rick and his Wife where in the Whopper report for the week and we came back to Sausalito with a couple nice Smokers. Perry
