I, too, fished east of Portofino on Friday, probably east of where you were and caught several catfish and a sea turtle. The turtle hit when I went to my car for some sunblock and turned over my surf cart. The rod was in the holder in the cart. If the cooler hadn't pinned the rod in the sand the turtle would have probably taken it out to sea. The turtle was about the same size as yours.

Oh wow, I know they are powerful swimmers, but dang. We hooked a huge one off shore a few years ago on 30lb test and could not get him to the boat to unhook em. just had to cut the line.
