Fishing west of the Santa Barbara Harbor, we fished from dawn til 4:41 pm and I made the call to pull the lines in at 4:50 pm. The current and wind were all wrong and fishing was very challenging. We had 2 bites but nothing stuck.

At 4:46 I called over to my friend in another boat to tell him we were leaving, and then my rod started pumping. On the other end was a 39.5 inch halibut weighing 23.7 lbs! Stick n Stay and Make it Pay!

Caught on a troll rig, dodger and purple haze hoochie with a fresh dead squid.
