I have no doubt that all of us have at least a few "fish stories".. I'd like to hear em. And I am hoping that some posters will dig back in their memories and share....Long ago I was diving off Pt Loma Ca. I was doing a "surface interval" and had set up a fishing pole leaned up against the rail. After lunch.. no more pole. So I suited up, dove down, picked up the pole and started to reel in line. This provided me with a unique opportunity to "trace" the movements of a panicking hooked fish. Straight to the bottom, circled a kelp stalk three times, under and around a rock ledge to a nice little cave about two feet wide. Inside was a 20lb Sheepshead that I desperately wanted to kill and eat. After about a minute she stopped struggling and simply wedged herself in the rock. Game over for me. But I got my pole back.. and a fish story.
