Giant Sea Bass

I enjoy fishing and was upset to see that a 200 lb. giant sea bass had been killed off La Jolla (see Dr. Ralph's post). The Pacific giant sea bass, sometimes referred to as the giant black sea bass, has been a protected species for about 25 years. As a bit of trivia, a then world record giant sea bass was caught off Catalina Island by Pauline Barrett in 1901. It weighed 416 pounds. She caught it with a rod and reel.

by the look on her face, i would say she just scolded the fish.
fearing for his life, the bass tried escaping, but accidently jumped into the boat.
