    I went on 5 trips, carpkiller went on 3. Lots of smoothies and shovelheads caught, but only 1 leopard shark. Lot's of lower body exercise fatigue.

    From shore they are fun but from a belly boat that must have a SoCal version of a Nantucket sleigh ride. Nice job Congrats on the kitty. Beautiful pattern well done!

    There was never any doubt,eh? Once Trix sets his sites on a target, it's dead meat (figuratively, at times)! Kudos gentlemen!

    Pffftttt, I wish! You should see what I'm not catching.

    Giant resident spotfin and corbina in both bays. Feeding patterns predictable as clockwork. I know them by name. Years and years of attempts with no bites. 100s of hours of prime fishing time down the drain.

    Imperial valley grass carp. 100s of hours of prime fishing time down the drain.

    the list goes on...

    Did you get a sled ride when it figured out it was on the hook? Looks like a lot of fun!

    Yeah I went for a ride. I almost got spooled too. I got a cramp in one arm and one leg at the same time during the fight. Crazy. True story.

    Luckily it wasn't a bigger model! It's hard to tell how hard those things can swim when you're fishing from the shore/large boat. But I know in a kayak, I've been towed a half mile before. Can only imagine trying to kick back from that kind of distance...
