Launched @ Marina Del Rey, and WE headed down south to pick up some nice Sardines @ Redondo Bait. Fished the corner for 2 quick drifts for nothing, and then headed across the bay 18 miles. Finally managed the right kind at 11:45 AM, a 33 pound Halibut.

Been trying to add the PIC, but it keeps saying the PIC is too large and it's been shrunk down to 50KB. I have new home computers and a new iPhone . . . no fucking idea what's going on, shot Jason the PIC maybe he can add?

Details

Again, caught on a 3-way swivel with a Spanish Mackerel for bait, 30# mainline, 30# leader, 64 feet deep, 62 degree water, drifting speed .7 knots which for me is the optimal drifting speed, no drift sock out, violent hit with the fish inhaling the bait, lots of Grunion still swimming around post last morning of Grunion-run, nice uphill current, water color Halibut green, water clarity Thresher brown tinge, lot's of bait all over SMB, not as many Porpoise but they're still around chasing fin bait with some crazy acrobatics thrown in, bagged and froze all the sardines in preparation ROCK Halibut season.

Added 2nd PIC 6/9 1312 PM

Congrats. That’s badass.

The picture problem is not because of you.
I’ve been trying to post a report up too but it says image is too large. Never had a problem before.

Again, congrats. Hellava Fish

    I never get tired of reports with 30+ pound flatties. That's a trophy fish all the way. Congrats. Would love to see the pics.

    Congrats on the flattie.
    That picture think has happened to me before. What I did was screenshot my pic, then posted the screenshot. For some reason that worked.
    Looking forward to seeing the big butt
