Took my boat out at 1030 this morning to just get it wet after doing all its maintenance for the first time this year.
The ocean was glass so ended up heading towards the 181, about halfway there spot a small paddy and long soaked a dine on 25 lb floro and got picked up.
Thought tail at first but quickly realized way to big with none of the characteristics.
45- 1hour later after spooling us three times I knew it wasnt a shark or we would have been sawed off long ago then I see pink!!! so stoked
I handed my friend the rod after I got hooked up as hes from arizona and this is his first fish on a private boat, he said man I was hoping to catch a tail:)
last pic of gps shows where it was caught then auto pilot WOT back to harbor weighed at kens.
