    So I was fishing at harbor island last night. I hooked something big on a dead anchovy. I fought it and managed to bring it to shore. However, I was hesitant to go down the rocks and net it. Eventually, whatever it was got stuck in the rocks and broke off the line. What could I have done better and how could I have gotten a big fish up from the rocks?

    I've taken to taking a few minutes to find myself a solid perch very close to the waterline when fishing HI at night. Its not so bad at high tide but it can be hairy on a low tide. Really is the best way to keep from having to drag fish up out and over the rocks so much. Downside is, you might go for a swim or get a wave to the face thanks to the idiots that like to drive through the bay at top speed at night. Sometimes though, really you just gotta go for it...

    I found a place slightly to the left of the bench in front of the hilton. I’ll try that next time.

    I know exactly what spot you are talking about, and that is one of the most common places for me to start with lol
