Guess he didn't like the taste of fiberglass.

look at the yak... black underside, little guy was just curious to what it was, gave him a little mouth hug.

I went diving the past two days despite the beach "closures".

No sharks seen...

BUTT I did find dinner laying on the bottom.

 ;)

Not a very big one at 27.5 inches, but still stoked...only my fifth speared one ever, second speared here in the 831...

Last one I got seems like forever ago back in 2015:

http://doty.norcalkayakanglers.com/catches/1793

I would be embarrassed about horrible shot placement but I'll go for a center mass bulls eye shot any day on these guys...

Didn't see this one until I was RIGHT above it and by time I saw outline I was so close I just pulled trigger right where gun was pointing. 

Also seen in the murk were leopard sharks, rays, mola mola, sand, short halibut, sand, sand dollar beds, spooked halibut in 3 feet of water, sand, bait, eel grass, guitarfish, and sand.

Pretty stoked to live so close to the beach that my food is still twitching when I get home:



Few pics attached...shot her right at sunset so didn't have a lot of light for better pics.

Gonna eat her tonight with my buddy Jeff who has been taking me out Salmon fishing. Want to try and say thanks for all his generosity. 

 :)

Sincerely,

Jim
