What a day- short review started 8am 1- 5 ft leopard shark, multiple bass, 3 halibut ended at 1:00. AWESOME STORY started before we left, no bait tank outlet hose, figured shelter island sd marine, opens 730, left home forgot money. Return get to store at 728, chad buys wrong hose spend way too much, I go in return , launch get bait hit 1st spot by bridge multiple drifts till 11, 5 foot leopard was a beast, couple runs decided to let it go, grabbed hook he was off. Multiple bass later it slowed, off to 2nd planned spot by S.I., , wish upon as star was on radio, SERIOUSLY , I looked up at our big star, the sun, and wished very specifically to put a halibut on my hook now. 3 minutes later I was bit. No gaff and we see it, uh oh, 3 swings 3 runs and now a broken net I GRABBED A KNIFE AND HAD HIM ON SURFACE- 1 QUiCK STAB AND LIFTED THE BEAST OUT OF THE WATER! What a Lucky day with good buddy Chad as we both kept calm 44 inches 24 lbs.
