    Harbor Island was much kinder to me today than yesterday. I landed 3 spotties, a 13-14 inch halibut, and my first sargo! It was a great fight on the lighter gear I was fishing today. It got wrapped up in some plants right at the shoreline, but I had my rubber boots on so I was able to get climb down and get him out. White baits were the ticket for me today at Harbor.

    After the bite died down, I busted out the trout rod and went over to Liberty to throw mini jigs and have some fun with the dinks. Missed a couple bites, landed a little spotty and the tiniest halibut I've ever caught. Great start to the day!

    I didn't, I don't carry a scale with me. I never expect to catch anything worth weighing/measuring :D
