SoCal Fish in Bay Area waters

Some strange happenings lately:

- A few dozen large (8-12lb) bonita have been caught by party boats and private boaters trolling for salmon between channel buoys and Duxbury
- A sand bass was caught and released in the central bay
- A (large) juvenile giant sea bass was caught and released in San Pablo bay
- Reports of threshers in the north bay chasing anchovies

Seems odd for a year that’s not “El Nino”! Certainly interesting

Most reports are from Facebook/coast side, pics attached.

Any interesting species caught off local piers lately?
