    My cousin and his friend came down to do an overnight with me on Wednesday night, but we didn't get our fill of fishing so we rented a skiff and got some live bait. Just like our trip on The Pacifica, the last stop was the ticket.

    The dude working at the dock didn't believe me, lol. I had to show him the measurement pic, which he took a pic of with his phone.

    Nicest one I’ve seen in the last few years. Hoping the 20” models come back.

    Yeah! I'm hella stoked on the fish and I don't even care that it was caught on live bait. I was mostly just making fun of the guy at the dock that said that to me and then went on to talk about how he only catches 1 18 incher for every 100 16 inchers that he catches on plastics.

    Yeah, but you got a picture on a tape measure and everyone else only has hot air.

    I appreciate all the love! I was so stoked on that fish I just had to share it. I barely kept myself from telling everybody I saw at Harbor tonight about it.

    .

    That's probably because he has never caught a 16"er , not to mention a 18"er... As I said, that is a great fish...
