    Went out on the Superhawk front Point Lookout this past Thursday.
    Awesome day.
    5am-5pm.
    TONS of fish.
    I caught many large porgy and seabass and 1 albacore. A decent amount of albies were caught as well as other tuna species too!.
    Also saw a mola mola (ocean sunfish)
    Great captain and crew!

    Black Seabass are Illegal to keep here in California. Almost fished to extinction many many years ago.
    I caught and released one
    about 150...deflated properly and revived. Back in the 80's.
    Another over 300lbs+
    in shallow water easily
    released and swam away.
    Good eating fish.
    Out of years fishing in Mexican Waters, never caught one I could keep. Enjoy yours.

    I think we are talking about 2 different black seabass.
    I think in the East Coast that is referring to what we call "Chilean seabass". Our black seabass rarely get larger than 5 lbs. A 10lber would be a monster!
    Cool picture though.
    Thanks
