I was out in Santa Barbara on vacation and got to get out in the surf with the fly rod. I landed five of these guys. they are called shovel nose guitar fish and are a member of the ray family. This was the smallest one. The others were all considerably bigger. they are sort of regarded as a nuisence catch out there. but it was a neat experience.

They actually come up into the wash of the waves and you will see them swimming backout in about 2 inches of water.

Hey, if it's pulling on the end of your line, who really cares what it is? Unless, that is, you're fishing for your supper. That's a neat catch!
