This is a dab, right?
37.5" on the tape and 26 lbs.
100' of water two miles off of DP.
Too big to be a sand dab.
Throw it back.
Yes, that is exactly what it is... now the trick is to find a pan big enough to pan fry it whole...
Oh, one of those guys.
I tried calling you twice on 72.
What'd you catch it on?
Congratulations on the Gold flytie!
Nice job that's a solid fish way to go!
We ended going waaaaaayyyy south for nada. On the gas most of the morning which is why we most likely didn't hear you. Sorry about that, bro. We tried to raise you at about 2pm when we bagged this one, but you may have been gone by then.
Cut squid dropper loop. Old school.
Long day, lots of miles but it paid off. Temp break was way too cold down south. Lock jaw on every stone.
See you out there next weekend!
Thanks, buddy. Props to my wife, she is learning to fish and as I walked her through a butt gaff shot (way too easy to F up) she waited for the fish to roll slightly and nailed a perfect collar shot towards the boat that paralyzed the fish.
Otherwise, all hell could have broken loose.
Wow, it’s a beauty! Certainly keeps our hopes up that one day we all can get lucky too!
That Dab has a nice butt. mrkrabs
Nice job - thanks for the post!
Nice work man!
Yep that is one big sand dab all right! Congrats.
Your hard work paid off. Congrats on the giant dab.
Oh... and nice looking fish also.
Great dinner with wife for sure.
Solid fish !! Nice work and nice gaff job !!
Can you imagine the Lingcod that would catch?
