    Fished Santa Monica Bay today with my buddy Joe. YT seemed to take the day off so we went to look around in some of Joe's secret spots. On my second drop down I landed my first legal halibut. DFW guys measured it out at 40.5" and 29lbs. Joe also caught a 13lb sheephead!

    Fish was caught in 165'.

    This year just keeps getting better and better...

    Tight lines.

    Congrats Tony! Nice to have a change of pace to tug on something other than a pelagic species. You've been doing well this season.

    Nice, that's pretty deep for a halibut. Good eats right there.

    Saw your fish yesterday. Sweet reward for sure!!!!!!!!!!!! :hali_olutta:

    It's also good to see Joe getting out so much. He's got a lot of salt in his bones that's for sure. :hali_olutta:
