    Went and fished live smelt from 1pm to 8pm yesterday. My dad and I fished Harbor Island and Spanish Landing only to catch a few spotties. Finally at 6:50ish we hooked into what we thought was a batray because it just peeled line. It got stuck to the bottom but we stayed patient and it eventually started coming our way. Somehow we got it in our tiny net (didn't bring out big net because it didn't fit in the truck we brought). Ended up measuring 34". The tape measure was a little off in the image that's why it looks like 35.

    Really nice fish and off the beach to boot, well done. It's even better because you did it with your dad. It's one you'll both remember

    We had a large net on an extension so that we wouldn't slip and break bones trying to land fish on a low tide from the rocks. Just took the extension off a couple days ago because we realized how unnecessary it was lol. Was probably about 12 feet long.
