Was drifting for butts locally in LB/LA harbor areas. Saw a thresher slap some bait near us and I was rushing to grab my live bait rig when my buddy fishing for bass throws his swimbait on 12lb at it b4 I could get my bait on. Damn mofo hooks it and farms it real quick on the 12lb... I was like dude... I had my 25lb with spectra backing in my hand thinking why did you do that... ... Go get em boyz. This was near Angels gate today. NO butts, bad red tide today.
