Catch and release?

Catch and release?

If I'd been the fisherman who snagged this specimen on the north side of the Oceanside Pier I probably would've worked a little harder to land him.  As it was, the gentleman had some problems getting untangled from someone's line - probably the reason for the oft-ignored regs requiring surfers to stay 100 feet away from the pier.
