    Default Dana point harbor 2/9

    Text Convo on my way home from work.
    Me: I was thinking about making halibut for dinner tonight, problem is I’d have to catch one...
    Her: Sounds good

    Well conveniently I had my gear in my truck still from my last adventure, I only had an hour to fish and hadn’t caught a legal halibut in 8 months but I wasn’t going to pass up an opportunity to try. I worked the edge of the jetty near the bait barge, missed several bites in the dirty water, was getting kinda pissed and thinking of changing out my bladed A-rig but my persistence was rewarded.

    22” on the nose, I had to measure it 3 times to be sure. Crazy day, no expectations, “huge” results. Haha
    I hope this buys me a few more fishing pit-stops in the future.

    Nice job.

    Do you mind posting a picture of you bladed A-rig?

    What pound test line are you throwing? Would be interested in lure as well.

    I use a Yum flash mob jr. tied straight to 50lb braid.
    1/8oz Kalins darter heads on all 5 snaps, I'll throw 1/4oz on the bottom 2 if fishing deeper water 15ft+
    For swimbaits i use swimming superfluke jr in pro blue red pearl(#1 choice), white ice or smokin' shad depending on the water color.
    other baits i like are yum pulse minnow, and lunker city swimming ribster.
    (3.8 kitec works great too but more $$)

    Really any bait that swims well at slow speeds in white/light colors or natural baitfish patterns will work fine.

    Thank you! Do you get hung up much? I have several umbrella rigs but haven't thrown them much due to snags in the salt.
