RIP Captain Jim Brincefield
Our trip took us out to the Norfolk Canyon area. We left in the dark, and rode back in the dark. This is a BIG day of fishing. Some anglers brought some electric reels, however we used what was on the boat. Captain Jim's reels were really in pretty good shape which is a bit rare for head boats. We had no problems at all with the gear.
The first mate was very attentive to everyone and made sure everyone was rigged right. The days catch consisted of a lot of huge Sea Bass. We had one fish that I did not know, really any idea what it was. So when I got back I called my friend Micheal Schwarz to see if he could pinpoint what kind of fish it was. He did get it, it was a Yellowfin bass. Anthias nicholsi. (Pic Below)Thanks Mike, having a marine biologist for a buddy sure can come in handy! Owe you some Sea Bass filets for that one.
