    Word of caution, it’s not advisable to keep fish you don’t know what are or what the refs are for them. Just friendly advice to protect your wallet from the warden’s pen...

    Best eating of the Perch variety. Best fighting too. Ate plenty of toxic perch and I'm still alive.

    Probably because they are not perch. They are grunts which makes them more closely related to croakers.

    Probably right makairaa. Fished for Perch and Sheephead from the rocks at Monarch Point, they were always considered Perch along with Opaleye and Barred,

    I stand corrected.

    That is a northern pacific black striped silver crested barbed rubber lipped pigmy perch. Very rare!

    I think you are wrong about that....the Pigmys have a large red dot above their anal fin, just like my ex did....

    FYI there was a dense population of sargo (along with orange mouth corvina) in the Salton Sea that attracted thousands of anglers throughout Southern California in the 60's-70's. You could just tie your boat off to a dead stick-up tree, chum with corn and catch an easy limit of big fat sargo. Was great fun for beginners.

    I appreciate all the good info from those more experienced with the subject of Sargo than I.

    Just to clear out some of the concerns and paranoia that a couple folks expressed. NO, I'M NOT DEFECTIVE and would have enough intelligence to NOT keep a fish that I didn't know the regs on. My uncle is the same way and the mystery fish at the time was released after a quick picture. I carry a DFG paper handbook onboard along with a digital copy on a tablet just to be safe. I understand that we live in California and at times common sense is not so common but come on fellas.

    Once again thank you to those for the help with the identification.

    Good on ya for the release. People probably posted about keeping it because it wasn't hanging on a line but in a cooler? , on a cutting board, looking say, tired.
    Haven't kept one but caught a bunch fishing for seabass.
