Photo taken July 30th on a trip with captain Chuck.
When I hooked this Pink I had no idea what specie the fish was. When I got it about 75 feet from the boat the sea lion appeared, and I immediately decided it wasn’t going to eat this fish! I reeled like crazy, continually steering the fish away from the hungry predator until our deckhand Caden was able to net it on his third lunge! The whole time I was screaming some not-so-nice things to the sea lion, and at one point everyone in the boat joined in. Captain Chuck said it was definitely the most fun he’s had landing a Pink, and if it weren’t for Caden’s long arms and extra effort we wouldn’t have won the fight! This catch was definitely a highlight of our trip! Thanks again for a great time!
