    Fished Dog Beach for nada with the weighted and non weighted LC...went down the street to Del Mar Beach and walked towards Dog caught a couple dink perch on Camo Crack. And then got hammered on C Rig with 6in Camo Crack cut in half to about 3or4in pulled drag and wasn’t a Ray got it to the shore pound and my Sahara 3000 drag is sticky went to loosen the drag...pulled once more and pulled the hook ugh!!! I’ve been fishing my whole life and my North Coast 8-17lb was doubled over this fish was easily 10-15lbs I’ve been haunted all day since hahaha gonna get em next time! Tight Lines y’all

    If I were to guess the way it fought it was either a decent Halibut,Ghost or maybe a smooth hound or shovel nose. Wasn’t a bat ray I know that for sure I know the mud Marlin fight this was something with a softer mouth too cuz I pulled the hook and wasn’t bent at all...ok I’m done reminiscing it’s making me cry thinking about it hahaha
