    I've said it before I noticed @sargo using the Z-man's and he's going to catch every fish in the bay, we're doomed.
    Maybe I'll start blaming him for my skunks

    The "Butts of 2017" could be a calendar.

    I've had two legals in MB this year and couldn't get my dads MB legal in the boat on Friday. Broke the line at the boat. Ugh.
    These are my MB halis and Jeff's big SD flatty this year too. aquaholic

    Are any of those small guys sand dabs?

    What's the difference between sand dabs and baby halibut?

    Flatfish ID is a whole thing unto itself.. Main things to look out for with CA halibut.. Mouth shape/size, color of spots, lateral line shape, eyes on one side of head or other etc. Sand dabs... Different deal.. Look at the rex, c-o, and sand soles. .then look at greenland halibut, petrale and bigmouth sole etc.. Good luck with that.. Lol

    Those are all incredible fish for sure and the one that Jeff, ( thanks for reminding me his name I've met him before but I'm pretty bad with names ) has looks huge is it the largest of the group it looks like a 30 to 35 pounder or is it because Jeff is sitting down? HaHa
