    Here's some fish from Last week. Thursday was the best day, took 5 home - only 2 guys out there. The big male took out 280 yards of line before I could finally turn him.

    Were they successfully released after a long ride on that rope?

    I bet they were released, or are gonna be released the day after they are eaten!

    I was hopin to see more Kangs. I've never caught a pier kang, mostly cuz I haven't really tried. I was hoping for some vicarious living here.

    Now pier steel is another story... I love me some pier steel, especially spring, fall, and dare I say wwwwwwinter

    I never thought to weigh or measure it... The huge pile of meat I had when I was done filleting it made me regret not getting stats. Judging by the pic, I'm estimating it around the 36" mark! It was not overly heavy though
