Ended up going to the east shore of Fiesta Island yesterday as necessitated by the Mrs. insisting on a fire pit and taking the dog. Hoping for leopard sharks or bat rays, but we ended up hooking up on one hell of a butterfly ray. Hooked up from shore, but my son insisted on fighting him from the kayak. I guess he wanted the old Nantucket sleigh ride! 25 minutes later the boys managed to bring the beast in. 42 inches and must have weighed at least 40#! Caught on a MH 8.5 foot rod and Piscifun Chaos 40 reel. 30# braid with a 25# flourish leader on a little chunk of sardine. Cheers! Tight lines!
