Got the mighty Sand Sole on video!

I could see the "free rays" on his head before I shot him so knew it wasn't a mini-butt, and back on shore when I checked out the underside the lateral line was straight and didn't have the arch that butts do.

It was tough to spot. I did not see it at all.
No wonder I suck at diving for them.

Pretty neat Jim! Congrats!
Live your life, the way you want to be remembered. Don't have any regrets, we only get this one dance to make it count. Start at your eulogy, and work backwards.
