Fish ID

Oh. The fish is definitely a snapper in the genus Lutjanus, but the location of capture seriously complicates things. Either way it represents an extreme range extension and is probably one of the most unusual things I've seen caught from a Southern California pier.

Ego, you NAILED that fish ID. I was also put off by the reported location of the catch, which is why I did not venture a guess.
Nicely done!
