Barb Gail IV

January 15, 2018:
Capt. Chris didn't run the BarbGail IV on many of the scheduled trips due to weather, but last week they were out on a trip for a few ling, two-at-a-time bergals (which the sizable ones folks can be quite tasty) on single hooks, with a few keeper blackfish to 7 pounds. Chris said they fished in 120 to 175 feet of water, with the best life around 145 feet in depth. He said the boat will continue to sail open and private charters whenever the wind allows.
