Fourth of July fishing

We took the Healthy Grin out to load up on some tilefish for all of our Fourth of July cookouts. We caught plenty of nice blueline tilefish and a decent number of sea bass.
A number of the tilefish were large, pushing 16 pounds, but none were large enough to challenge the latest pending 17-pound record fish.
In the group photo, from left to right are: Jorj Head, Matt Rinck, Bob Manus, Ken Neill, and Bill Hall. Bob decided to find out if these fish can be caught on a spinning rod and a diamond jig. He proved that they can. He did it once and then he put the spinning rod away.
