Do you drag the bigger ones to the shore or ----- how do you get the bigger ones up?

The "whatever this is" fish is called a "lookdown". I guess you can see where it gets its name.

Just a note for your next trip...Using that bonito as cut bait is fantastic for reds from the beach.

We gave it to a very appreciative Asian man. It seems they like to cut off the head and eat it.

You chase it around until you get it back to the pier, someone yells for a gaff, you desperately yell for one again, at which point your husband and sons realize it is you with a fish, and a nice young man comes running with a gaff on a long rope, hooks it and pulls it up.

That was one of two. stik had one by himself and the one on my little $40 rod and reel combo. \:\) He made me chase that one and fight it for a while so I could get some experience. I got more experience than my arms could handle. \:D

Great report... especially the "yelling desperately" for a gaff part.

I needed it badly. It was taking all I had to hold his head above water so he couldn't take off on me or try to get under the pier again. The whole fight was quite comical. That fish ran me all over the place. \:\)
