Threw some x-raps for 5 short halis (1 just barely!) and this nice orangemouth. That's a 28" cutting board so that would be a legal wsb! Fished an hour on each side of the low slack at the inlet.

So the shortfins have orange mouths too? I did not know that! I just assumed that it was the other because of that orange. Time for me to study up a little apparently! How big do Shortfins get? I've heard Orangemouths can reach 25# or more.

Nice Corvina!! This one is indeed is a shortfin. Where was this at? I know people catch them all the time in San Diego Bay. We used to catch orange mouths in Salton Sea back in the day......Not anymore.

They both have orange in their mouths. The shorten has a flat tail fin. The orange mouth has a pointed tail fin almost seems rounded. Thats one way to tell. Nice haul though. They taste great!!

Caught in Agua Hedionda lagoon. Did some research and found the IGFA all-tackle world record for them is 10 lbs. 6 ozs. (from SD Bay). This one would've been really close to that but I had no idea! You're right though, very tasty! Just like chicken. I mean....white seabass.
