My buddy caught this at LJ canyon the other week... He caught it on a squid strip on the bottom in 110ft. The fish was about 10" long, definitely shaped like some sort of perch. Very pretty - it had those bluish/purplish dots on its head. I couldn't ID it with any of the perch info posted on dfg web site (Marine Sportfish Identification -- Surfperches Group). We never caught one of these before. It swam back unharmed. Help IDing would be appreciated - I'm hoping some of you surf guys may know.
