Red California Rock Fish, often mistakenly called rock cod
Farallon Islands Ling Cod - won a nice jackpot!
Good-sized Yellowtail caught at Cedros Island on a blue and white Salas 6X JR.
Leopard Grouper - small, but tasty.
Typical catch of assorted California Rock Fish - Farallon Islands.
This 60 pound tuna became shark bait...
My first and only elusive White Seabass.
Helen holding a Ling Cod. She not only holds fish, she catches, cleans, and cooks them.
This Golden Grouper is hanging on Pete's wall. What a beautiful fish.
Jessica, a friend of mine's daughter, was 14 in this picture. She not only charmed everyone aboard, but also caught more than her share of fish, including a Striped Marlin, which she released.
A large Golden Eye California Rock Fish.
This 48 pound Yellowfin Tuna was hooked at 2 AM. It ran straight for the boat. The entire fight lasted 15 seconds. . . What a thrill!
My fishing partner Dave (aka. Wahoo), with an average size Yellowfin.

This Black Seabass weighed well over 250 pounds.
California Sculpin has poisonous spines. They are very beautiful, and good eating.
My friend Sue, pulling on a Yellowfin. Notice the light tackle and bent rod. This was her first long range trip.
Dave holding a typical sized Pargo - also known as Red Snapper.
This sunset, photographed in 1992, is the remnants of a hurricane. It chased us nearly back to San Diego. Still caught a lot of fish and had a great trip.
This 38 pound bull Mahi Mahi was caught on my first long range trip in 1990. Mahi Mahi is also known as dolphin (a fish, not a marine mammal) or dorado. They are beautiful, but the stupidest animal in the ocean. I have even c aught them using bare hooks, chewing gum wrappers, and bits of yarn.
