Default Out of Area report San Diego# 4

My last trip made me decide that Halibut would be my next target fish here in SD. So without question that was our task for today.

We made our way to the bait barge right away and started drifting.
10 minutes into drifting we got our first Halibut. The next drop produced the only legal one of the day but it managed to release itself from my friends kayak.
The Halibut bite died down but it wasn't long before we were hooking into something else. These fish are nasty looking they remind me of a dragon... I'm being told by the locals that they are called sculpin good to eat but not in season. Also their spikes are poisonous ( glad I was too scared to grab them..) .

Although we didn't bring home a keeper Halibut it was still a great day on the water; both of us caught our first Halibut , our first Sculpin and we got to see sealions up close.

Now that I have the technique down its time to find the big ones!
(Tips welcome)

Nice report. Great photos.

Wish we had halibut where I live and fish on the Texas Gulf Coast.

Thanks for sharing.
