    Fished SF bay yesterday with the wife and FIL. Had a great time.
    Loaded up on stripers right off the bat, limits in about 30min. The halibut were abit less active.
    We ended up with 3 keepers and one of the 3 deserves a little recognition.
    My FIL pulled in a 43"42# halibut that was a beauty.

    Fish almost did him in as he has an awful back.
    When we drove thru Berkley in the am it was dark. When we left the sun was out and my wife could see the surroundings.
    What an absolute ****hole of a city. Homeless camps everywhere.
    This am the wife woke up and thanked the lord we live where we do.

    Awesome! My lifetime best hali is 29 1/2".

    ...and to realize some folks actually pay attention to what the ****hole denizens think.

    Bummer. Title had me hoping to see a pretty gal that enjoys cooking, lawn work and plucking birds.

    #1-maybe
    #2-unlikely

    The first may be on my list but the other two would not likely be on my list for a keeper.
