Fished the bay friday with my fishing bud throwing jerk baits and curly tailed grubs from the rocks. Typical afternoon scratching spotties. 10 in all. And then the perverbial "Bam". New right away this was no spotty. Line peeling off the reel, big head shakes...Could this be? Buttoned down the drag, got it turned around. Brought it to color and yup , "its the right kind. :)
Catching a hali was awesome, seeing my buddy get so excited about it, Priceless...

28in and 9.5 lb Hali..:D..Great day with a good friend and a nice butt.
Big spotty caught by the Grubster...
