    The bite was on this past weekend up north! I made it out Friday night and Saturday morning and managed to hook up with a 20 inch halibut, 10 inch YFC and 8 spotties between 12 and 17 inches!

    Got most of them with a kaitech swim bait on a spinner jig head, the two biggest spotties, 14 and 17 inches came on a drop shot sand worm on a #8 octopus.

    These all came from the jetty on the north end of o side harbour, not even a nibble from the surf either day.

    I was bummed, I got it up on the rocks, reached for my phone, then it popped off the hook and weasled its way down between some boulders. Spent about 10 minutes with half my body wedged between the rocks trying to grab the dang thing by the tail. Managed to get it out and back in the water, it swam off happily albeit very confused and probably a little sore.

    That's a nice story, but no pic no fish. Nice going on the spotties though
