Nice list!
No croakers?



Thanks David will add.


I think I have mostly landed yellowfin croakers (in the same places as the corbina was caught) but caught a few spotfin croakers as well... I think near Laguna Manuela? The world's biggest spotfin croaker has got to be those caught by Woody in the Seven Sisters somewhere. Have you seen the photos of them? I think Western Outdoor News published them, really giant spotties!

Yes I have seen photos of Woodys fish. That thing was a TOAD! I´ve never caught anything close to that size:no:.

Us old timers were fortunate. The license fees were reasonable and many of the now popular lakes were walk-ins so no access fees. I started young at Crystal Cove and by 12 I fished N. Laguna. 2 yrs. at Catalina school. Lots of diving and fishing there. After the Army (1972) spent 2+ years in Santa Barbara and got into fresh water fishing at the area Lakes and streams and North along the coastal estuaries and surf. Move to WA in '80 and learned a whole different fishery up there. And in '92 I moved to Baja. What a life! I get sea sick in the back bay on party boats so never got out for tuna and other off shore brusers but got yellow fin, dorado, sail fish, marlin, sharks and other reef dwellers in my tin boats and ponga. I mostly shore fish now and have racked up a lot of odd stuff around Pt. Chivato. So I've been extremely fortunate and have caught a lot of different species. Enjoy reading about others and their lives with a fishing rod.

No idea how many I've caught over the years, but I got fourteen different ones today. The first eleven were in the same 100-yard-wide patch of water.

Yellowtail
Bonito
Calico bass
Sand bass
Vieja (sheepshead)
Barracuda
White sea bass x4 (juveniles, 6-8lbs)
Sargo
Two kinds of triggerfish
Some sort of wrasse thing

At another location a little earlier in the morning:
Star-studded grouper
Popeye catalufa
Pacific tilefish

Had I known it was going to be that kind of odd day, I'd have hit the bottomfishing spots a little harder and added another five or so to the list!

Now that is impressive! I bet Ray Cannon and Tom Miller are applauding this up in their fishermen's heaven!

Hi Nick, to show a Photobucket image here:
Before uploading (or upload again for Nomad), select the upload options and then upload size at 800 pixels max (width) or less (640 is popular too).

After the photo is in your album or your bucket, then of the many possible links for sharing, choose the IMG link (copy with your mouse or click on it) and then paste that link in your Nomad post... you can type in a caption below the photo link... and you can add many photo links to a single post. Double space between the links looks better so they all don't run together if you don't have any captions.

An even easier and free photo hosting site is www.postimages.org and it has just three actions to select and you only need to select the one that says ... original size. It is a drop-down menu and simply select 800 or 640 pixels. Then look for the link for forums (near the bottom of the many kinds of links... it begins with [IMG].
