My first Megamouth!

Towards the end of last season, finds were getting slim, so I spent most of the day helping a few newbies do some digging at PCS. A while later, I sat down for lunch, and there it was, at my feet! I couldn't believe my eyes. Fist one in 3 yrs apparently, and on the 14th ever recorded at Lee Creek. Not quite as showy as a 5-inch meg, but rare is rare!
