Caught my Turkey

Wanted to see if Bonito was still around at balboa. Nothing, dead. No bait, no even mackeral from 3 to 6 the time I fished. Saw no one get anything but smelt. So adjusted setups from bonito to halibut. C rig with of course a lively smelt. About an hour got this big boy. 30 inch on the dot. Had no light, no net to land him. Ran around pier to see anyone has one while my lady held it. No luck. Had to walk it to the beach. Surprisingly, my 12lb leader didn't snapped or sawed off. Thanks to a guy assisting me at the surf to land it.
