    Nailing records. That's what she does.

    Now my daughter has caught a bigger halibut out of San Diego bay over anybody I know. This fish was bigger than her. Her head could have fit in the mouth.

    Great fish. And your daughter caught it to boot. Looking at that tail, we know what that halibut had it's mind on. The time has come!!

    The like system didn't exist when this post was made. I think I switched the forum software in the summer of 2015, so less than 2 years of the likes.

    I'm sure there are tons of threads like this that have really great catches before summer of 2015. That hasn't got as much recognition as the posts we post now.
    I was just looked up "San Diego halibut" on google images and this one showed up.

    That explains why you responded - I couldn't figure out why an old post would show up for someone to comment on.

    Pick up a copy of Western Outdoor News. She's in this last weeks copy. Different creature. Her mom is in there, too. Her mom is my wife. Mom got one, too.
