    Pt Loma kelp 6-16

    ...the DFG guide even goes on to say they are "Fantastically colored"...Also I have heard they can be identified by their Left Wing Points of view, liberal nature, and very flamboyant tendencies... :rofl:

    Pt Loma kelp 6-16

    I stand corrected. You are correct macalusoaj, it is a Rainbow surfperch. The dark spots on the dorsal and anal fins are the give away, though it looks very similar to the striped. I have been referencing a CA DFG perch guide on-line...

    Otaru slaying!!! (Kaneohe 6-16-2012)

    Nice bradda!!! I caught my first hammerhead shark in Kaneohe bay, I'll never forget that place...
  166. steelonthefly

    Pt Loma kelp 6-16

    ...It is a "Striped Seaperch" which can grow to about 15". I caught one last winter in the surf up at Jalama. I had to do a little research because I was curious what a "tropical" looking bugger like that was doing in 56-58 degree water. Probably the coolest looking perch I've ever caught...

    Who needs tuna? Outrider kills it.

    Never mind...I just realized what the title of this thread is referring to, in other words, the open party trip will be fishing the islands NOT the Tuna...I suspect...hence MY title...Duh...I get it...now.

    Utah is calling Shark

    First place I ever witnessed a Salmon run!! Pretty neat. I would head up there from Park City in the Spring when I heard the ice was coming off. I'd huck jigs out to the "ice-shelf" and hammer 'em on the drop. (Though I'd prefer to be fly-fishing, it was quite frequently mighty windy there.)
