March Submission

2011 Official Final WCW Submission


After pounding sand forever in the local water for nada, all it took was a change of scenery. This was the winning fish at the March Baytubers Tournament.
Got a 9lber first, then released a 7lber and finally this fish decided to make my day.





Halibut
Location: Dana Point
Date: 3/26/12
Bait: Horse Sardine
Length: 37"
Weight: 24 pounds












WCW 2011....No Mas

Awesome fish Don! And a tourney winner to boot.

I was fishing LJ that day and as I was losing my mind looking at my finder's blank screen, my gut was telling me you were going to find a nice one up in DP.

I was waiting at the Launch this morning for you???? Don't worry, you didn't miss anything except a cold breeze and a building swell.

My hat's off to you. You're a fishing machine.

Thank god you live 100 miles away from LJ.

Don,

Well done, you had an awesome run and are certainly one hell of a fisherman. Your showing is even more impressive given the commute you make to fish LJ. Very cool.

Another solid month, Don...

Just imagine if you bought that silly Pro Angler last Summer. Even without it, I bet you can remember the smile on the Yellowtail's face as he shook your hook at the gaff---right beside the kayak.

I'm pretty sure that fish's face will be engrained into your memory for some time. Especially since this was a slam-completing-Yellowtail, no less.

Apparently those extra eighty points (30 for the fish and 50 for the slam bonus) came into play after all. Getting pipped at the last second has got to sting a bit---ouch!
