Got two, at the "secret spot" off Long Beach. Both on tady 4/0 blue-white in about 150-160 ft. First one bit early a.m. while sitting around waiting for things to get started. Second fish was on a bird school, but when I got it to deep color and the damn Sea Donkey took off with it by the tail, it hadn't been molested too much so we decided to try and retrieve it. After 20-25 minutes of trying to keep the bastard from surfacing to get air we tighted up the drag to full on my avet sx raptor with 40# CXX and handed it off to some fresh arms. We got the knothead turned towards the boat and gaffed it right out of his mouth and boated it pretty much intact! Both 22-23#s

If the "secret spot" was the 150 then we saw your battle. Red lund with a honda. We got outta your way when the furbag went ape shit. Fun time watching you guys fuck with it, determined! Right after you got out of range i just said to my dad we should of taped it for them, this will be on bd later. Congrats on getting it back!

One of the best fights I ever seen, rather entertaining it was. Glad you got the fish. Wish I would have got some pics but it was all I could do to get out of your way!! Good Job.

Yup 9 miles. But theres areas with 150 feet of water much closer in once the horse shoe drops off. Your still gonna need a boat though :D

Water temp was 63.5 degrees monday. Amazing.
