    Took my 10 year old granddaughter Shelby out yesterday (Sunday) morning on San Diego Bay for a couple of hours, launching at 7am. Time was limited as we hadf to head to the airport to pick up her aunt and uncle at 11am.

    I had loaded both bay and ocean rods, but forgot the bay lures, so we headed to the bait barge and bought a $10 quarter scoop, then ran out to to the channel to bounce-ball the outbound tide.

    1/2 kt drifts along the southern channel drop-off produced a number of fish, and a legal halibut for her at 8am that popped the hook when it made its first run back down!

    we drifted a couple more times, catching a variety of fish... including a couple small hali's. Last drift at 10:15, I tell her to "wind it up" and her pole goes bendo! She's cranking hard, telling me it's definately a hali, even though she's only had one other one on before. And, she's right! Up comes a definate legal, which makes one small run, then gets a quick gaff! First Halibut, just like that. (26", 6 lbs)

    We caught 13 fish total- sandies, a spotty, three halibut, a large greenie, and a rock.... but that first 'but had her singing "I caught a hali" all the way back to the landing.

    I love reading stuff like this. Reminds me when I caught my first hali at the old ASW pier in 1977.. when I was 6 and watching my dad hide it under an empty beer box because it was short right before DFG walked by to inspect. Good times :p

    Nice job on the first legal Halibut Shelby. Always nice to see another angler hooked up. Good times with Grampa. Go as often as you can,you never have a bad day.
