Jerry Giberti- Alhambra, California- July 4th, 2004

“….a full blown Dana Point (California) Fourth of July was underway. The bite (in the harbor) was unrelenting! A combination of small barracuda and herring…..On the next drop, the pole suddenly turned into a ninety degree bendo, and I put my feet back in the yak. this fish began to haul my yak around the harbor, with spectators looking on as the battle continued…..After about fifteen minutes I finally got the fish high enough to see….. then down he went again. About ten minutes later,I finally netted my fish. It barely fit in the net. I found out it was a spotfin (croaker).”
