For all you big game hunters, buffalo also frequent the path from Cat Harbor to Isthmus Harbor. Check by the porta-potties during the dry season! Partial truth. Yes, they are there, No, you can't hunt them. Yes, I am friggin' bored today.
In the late 80's... 86, 87. 88... who know when, My buddies and I caught quite a few spotted bay bass while catching bait (small macs) off the coast on San Jose Del Cabo. We were on a high spot just off Zippers and The Rock (surf spots in San Jose). We were fishing " Luck Joe" rigs... that was back in the day, before they were called Sabiki rigs.
I grew up fishing Newport Harbor. I know what a spotted bay bass when I see one. They were not small Cabrilla, they were bay bass.
