    My dude Jon, Ucsdsu hit me up this morning to see if we could get a session in. For some reason, SS was on my mind, so we met up and got started chumming with leftover rice. Opaleye came out right away, along with some wrasse, then something bigger hit and ran me under the rock. Got it turned (damn glad I had mono, with braid I would have been jacked), and a 13.5" sheep came to hand, fun fun. Bite slowed to a crawl after a few minutes, but the good old boy gut hooked his first giant kelpfish ever, and a wrasse. A bit slow, but all in all, a nice session with a good dude... Nice to have my first legal though, was starting to wonder if I was even going to get a single one this year, last year I got three or four.. might have to hit SS more often, lol...

    Texture like fake crab, with a faint shrimp, crab, lobster flavor. A bit firmer than their cousins (that I eat also).. butter and lime, steamed, ceviche, sashimi, tacos, even lobster bisque... Versatile fish as long as you don't mind the faint shellfish flavor.
