    They sure are spectacular when you get to see them engulf you lure / bait , seems to happen just at the end of a retrieve around the reefs . There is a ray that looks very similar that inhabits the waters around here that if you grab a hold of it to handle ,will knock you on your butt , Pacific electric ray , It doesn't have the jaws like an angel and a little more rounded in the body but same size and habitats just for info . Have a dive buddy that grabbed one by the tail over in Catalina SURPRIZE ! only 45 volts but a good jolt .

    Nice catch, btw you can keep sand out of your reel by laying it down with the handle touching the sand.

    Funny that I’ve never thought of that. My dad would tell not to put my reel in the sand, but he wouldn’t say how.
