    A non fishing friend of mine saw a knucklehead spearfish a 100# pulse BSB off the beach I. laguna Beach last week. He flagged a CHP to call the DFG.. To no avail..

    I sure hope this guy was not a bloody decks member...

    If an angler or spearfisherman cannot tell the difference between species, he/she should not be in the water..

    Tight lines

    The story goes that he shot the thing and tried to drive down on to the beach to pick it up and the lifeguards called F&G and they cited him...or something like that..Either way the guy is a douche bag...

    While it is unfortunate, let's not forget that the diver did not know his fish ID. He was very new to spearfishing, and made a big mistake.

    I am not condoning it; but I will say that if you have ever seen a truly beast sized WSB in the water, well.... in dirty water like that, it is not difficult to see a dark tail in the kelp, and it can be hard to distinguish between a 70lb WSB and a 100lb BSB.
    Experience teaches us to wait for a better ID, but in the case of a new diver in dirty water??? Mistakes happen.

    Actually, the damaged caused to the law abiding fisherman is the worst part of this.

    Ban him from fishing for life!

    If you can't tell the difference between a fat fucking black seabass and a super long 70lb seabass then you shouldn't be fishing. Let alone take a fucking 5 foot speargun in the water with you.

    No f'ng excuses. The decision making process was wrong period. If you don't know than don't shoot it.
    Don't make it complicated. It's a simple situation. The only correct statement is that it was a mistake.
    Life sucks and sometimes plp f up and need to learn the hard way. This is just part of natural selection.
    Assumption: (disregard this, just read the article the guy is 30yrs old) Thanks JR for the article.
    Saw the kids pic on the other dumb ass thread. He looks young so how did he get a speargun? I wouldn't buy my kid a weapon without proper training and education. At least it wasn't a surfer or another diver! That could have been involuntary manslaughter.
