Hi I hope you all had a great season for 2020. I went out for a last of the season outing on November 11, 2020 to the surf with a buddy of mine. I caught a 28" on the 7th so I knew there was an opportunity to catch after the warm couple of days we had upto (21°C). It was low tide when I started about 11am and I fished about an hour with the ss needle working the beach along the structures and when I got to my last spot about 12:30pm I decided to switch to the mag darter (5inch). I made a cast and hooked a piece of kelp so I quickly retrieved to remove the kelp. Soni made a second cast next to an under water reef and was retrieving the lure slowly and once I got 20 feet from shore I had a hit. The fish made a break about 5 seconds after I set the hook before she ran the longest run of life towards the west by the reef and rocks. I was able to steer the fish and she went east towards another reef the protrudes about 100 yards but again was able to steer her away and after 9:35 seconds of pulling drag every few seconds I landed her. 51.5 inches long and 28.5 inches of girth. After the quick measurement my buddy took a couple quick photos of the fish I released her back into the (48° F) water and swam off like I didn't catch her.
