    For our annual father/son trip my dad and I ran his boat to Catalina. Thursday had wide open calico and bonita bite near church rock on dines and whatever else you threw at 'em. Friday we fished backside and farmed a keeper halibut. Went back to church rock area for bonies and I speared dinner.

    Saturday we made some mackies outside of Avalon harbor and tried the three v's area in 60-80 feet of water. Weren't down for more than 10 minutes when my old man hooked up with a big fish on a nose hooked mackeral. 35 minutes later he brought a monster black seabass to the side of the boat. It measured 4'6" long and almost 4' in girth. After a few pics I had water running through his gills while my dad ran at idle speed. He finally flopped his tail and swam back to the bottom. Added a lot of excitement to the morning!

    Later that day we caught some bonies and I saw two more monster black sea bass while freediving.

    Sunday we ran back to Mission bay across the 277, 209, 181 and 182 looking for temp breaks and paddies. Saw one jumper but NOTHING else the whole way. Gorgeous waters let us run at 20-25 knots though. Great waters, weather and fellowship the whole weekend!! Dads take your sons fishing!!

    Well, I'll say it. Nice catch and release but not to good on the fish. Better to keep the fish in the water.

    Dont you know your not suppose to touch black sea bass???
    Once you know you have hooked into one you are to cut your line close to the fish without hurting or touching the fish, You violated a golden rule there by bringing that fish on your vessel. If in the next few days a balck sea bass was found dead in the area you stated you caught one, Fish and game would hold you liable since you have photographic evidence that you removed a black sea bass from the water to photograph it, that can be deamed as harassing a black sea bass.
    Case in point the fisherman earlier this year that caught a black off the pier, jumped on a guys boat hauled the fish to shore, took pictures and released it. The fish died and washed up a few days later, those guys are now facing serious Jail time.
    Its not worth the hassle dont touch "BLACK SEA BASS" cuttign your line is safe that a few years in jail over a fish, ask those guys when they get outa jail.

    Good job on the successful release, but you should know that it's illegal to remove black sea bass from the water. You have to release them without pulling them aboard. Lip-gaffing isn't a good idea either.

    In the future, stick to posting pics of black sea bass still in the water, less incriminating.

    Damn, thats too much, especially the BSB on the deck with a gaff.
    Nice touch at the end of the vid regarding the safe release.

    You sure that plate of food in the pic isnt BSB and scrambled eggs ??

    Sorry I missed the pictures.

    Hope the fish survived.

    Sometimes I wonder how much abuse fish can really take. I know a lot of guys think the slightest handling and they are done. (again....I didn't see the pics).

    However....a fish from my aquarium (flame angelfish/ saltwater) jumped out of the tank and I found it who knows how long after. It's skin was getting dry and starting to wrinkle. I was ready to flush him. Then it moved a little bit. I put it in the water and tried to move it around for a few minutes to revive it. That wasn't working and then the fish slipped out of my hand. I went to find the dip net to get him out of the tank and flush him. When I got back from getting the net the fish was upright and holding it's position in the water. Two days later it started to look healthy again. It's two years later and the fish is still fine.

    So I wonder.....how much handleing can a fish take?
