Apparently a 15-pound giant (black) sea bass was caught last week in Humboldt Bay by Eureka. Only second recorded in the bay since 1966.

-Ken, I guess that is rare because it is too cold for them that far up North?

-I remember only seeing one BSB of 60# in the stack of salmon coming in in the mid 70’s at Moby Dick Baitshop (the location of the the present day Berkeley Marina Sportfishing Center).

-I know in your fish history, they were much more common at Santa Cruz/Capitola Wharves and south.
