Nice catch, November Tuna,
Looks like a bonito to me
kinda hard to tell from your picture but does not look like hake to me... the first vertebrae on lower half of hake are very unique and easy to ID...
next time save it! Hake otoliths are easy to ID as well....
here is a helpful guide to identifying fish otoliths.....

pretty sure it's a small one of these
the teeth, eye, tail, and overall body shape is right. Lives in the right habitat too.
Cool, thanks Oywn @DOS BALLENAS ! Was hoping you would chime in.
Looks like bonito to me, too.
Respect OP perogative to not give too much info out, but stating a launch point in a BD "fish report" has never been considered giving away the farm. Fact is, if all BD reports only had fish stories and photos, BD would not have any users left in about 3 months. "Finding your own fish", has never meant finding your own boat launch. Again, I do respect the OP, I just respectfully disagree that on a given day, each launch point offers the same chance of success simply because the water temps work. -My 2 cents.
-Congrats on a great trip, I enjoyed the read. Did you say you tied 20lb tippet to an 8lb backing..?
Ok, fine, I left from Newport Beach, California.
Yeah, 20lb flouro to Ande IGFA 8lb which tested at 6.8lbs.
I tried 4lb p-line today but lost all three fish I hooked on it.
Cut him some slack,, HE'S A 50 TON CAPTAIN,,
love these secret reports....get over yourself.....
If you want to go un-solo I'm trying to get out on Sunday, all my own gear and money. if not. great report. thanks
Sounds good. Meet him in the parking lot at The launch ramp. He'll be in the cream colored fiber glass boat on the trailer at the landing in a Southern California launch ramp one day in the next month. It's all about timing!
