37lb California Kelp Donkey

Yesterday was my day as its been a minute since I caught a quality fish on the yak....37lb california kelp donkey ....I got him near kelp the line south west of the condo in about 80 feet of water on a carolina rigged mack about 10 am...dragged me through 3 kelp stalks and broke my braid so i ended up having to hand line him in which was easy since he qas tuckered out. also couldnt ask for better conditions, water cleared up alot, and bait was everywhere ...

lessons learned

1. don't have 3 lines out near the kelp I had to cut two to save the fish
2. always be ready for a bite on the rod I am fishing
3. Pay attention to whats going on around you...noticed there was a lot of bait around certain areas so I kept fishing those areas and I lucked out!
4. Keep thinking positive for a big seabass!
