Fishermen Break Pt. Mugu Camp Record

Fishermen from Santa Paula and Venture broke the halibut record at Point Mugu this week for season and gave local anglers something “big” to aim for.

Harvey Schuyler, 139 Oak street, Santa Paula, last Sunday landed a 53-pound halibut from the barge, the largest so far for 1935. The halibut measured 56 inches in length and 22 inches in width.

W. J. Stuart, 222 ½ Vince street, Ventura, on the same day, topped the previous pier record of 31 pounds by taking a 33 pounder.

However, Los Angeles anglers seem to favor the big ones, as Ray Darsie, Griffith Park Golf course, on July 30, landed from the barge a 400 pound jewfish. This makes more than a dozen large jewfish landed this season from the barge, practically all by Los Angeles fishermen.

During the past week halibut fishing slowed up somewhat in quantity but on average were larger. Sunday crowds continue to fill the pier, while there is elbow room for those who are able to do so, throughout the week days.

Back in the days, giant sea bass (usually called black sea bass or Jewfish) were one of the favorite fish for barge anglers. Most barges had a special place up front from which those seeking the giant bass could fish.
