Yesterday Mike (squid lips ) and I met up in Waretown to fish for fluke. We started off at the mouth of OC. I felt a tap tap from what I thought was a flounder and then a WHAM from a 30" (estimated size) skate. I was using my light action spinning rod with 17lb fluro and a 20# leader. For the first 10 minutes I could not get the skate up off the bottom. I was worried about breaking off. after a long fisght I finally wore him out and got him to the surface. He was huge for my standards and then the reality hit- NOW WHAT?? I thought it was a stingray and was not willing to mess with that barb, so i eventually cut him loose. I told Mike and he informed me that it was a skate and that other than their skin barbs, they are harmless. Oh well- live and learn, LOL!
Mike then drifted in the same place I hooked up and hooks up as well. I filmed his battle but in the end I screwed him because I wanted to get into better light and went over the fish and it spooked him and he came off. I should have went around the other way . Sorry Mike.

You didn't screw me Rob, that skate just didn't wanna get caught that day is all. Lucky for me that it was kind enough to give me the rig setup back! lol

Hey it was great paddling with ya Rob, I look forward to another trip soon. And that video came out pretty cool, you do great work...
