It's callico bass. I've got 2 of them during past 2 weekends while bottom trolling for halibut near Capitola ( ~ 10 lb each). I've never heard of them here in Santa Cruz. This fish is typical for warmer waters of S. California.

You can kind of tell by his tail Finn! BSB! You must’ve been close to the kelp beds! They pull really hard! You can catch them near the ship! That’s a really small one. Can’t keepem though.
