I fished the gate with squid and anchovy from 3:00-6:30. I lost one ray about 70lbs then at 5:15 I hooked up on 25lb line, after a 1 hour fight I landed a ray that was 54" from wing to wing, 150lbs.

Nice Job. You must have been a little tired after that one. I would have wanted to give up after a 1/2 hour ;D

Im sure that isn't 150 pounds. Im saying maybe 60.

Sounds right to me. He said 54" across, 150#. Fish and game says "Largest Recorded: Width 4 feet, 9 inches; 181 pounds". That would be 57" across, 181 pounds.

Very nice ray, Minnow Magnet. I hope to catch one like that someday.

I go one that was 48 inches at the San Leandro Marina back in the day that bottomed out a 65 pound scale without a problem...Probably near or over 100 pounds....
