What kind of fish is that?

The "Gray Ghost", "Beener", "California King Croaker", one of the hardest pound for pound fighting fish in the SoCal surf... The mighty and elsuive Corbina.

Put in 3 afterwork dives last week...

 

Got a limit of three butts first dive, one butt on second dive and a skunk on third dive...on third dive I spooked a nice one and when it took off it spooked another nice one right next to us....couldn't find them again and didn't see any other fish after that...

Fish weren't very big (between 24 and 27 inches) but plenty of meat to feed all my family and friends many yummy fresh meals.

Just curious how a Corbina tastes.

I've found anything that eats crabs generally taste great. Does it compare in taste to any other fish you've eaten?

Nice catch.

 Not Bad at all, mild white meat, taste similar to the Yellow Fin Croaker in my avatar, lol. Nothing I would crave like Tuna or Yellowtail collar though...

Finally got out on my yak for a couple hours yesterday around Santa Cruz. Landed some shaker halibut, one of which came on a trout-sized rooster tail I was trolling for Macks, lol. Caught the heftiest mackerel I’ve ever caught as well, about 14 inches. Nice to see those around.

Largest Black I’ve ever caught. 7lbs and 23”. Thought it was a decent lingcod until I brought it in. Prolly close to 30yrs old?

Salmon have been small and elusive. Our season has been slow as **** compared to what I’m hearing about the rest of Cali. Buddy said I couldn’t troll with a spinner.......so I did.
