By the way, I was marking the same massive bait balls on Thursday. Lots of life out there!

Those fillets look so good, I'm getting hungry.
Mark, I hope all is well brother! Yeah this water is so warm right now. I cant believe we haven't seen a tuna/dodo post yet.

Cheers Mike and congrats again!



Thanks again to everyone for the kind words and congratulations!

Much appreciated.

Here is a short clip from that day, along with some footage from the last couple trips. A little halibut action in there and some fun sailing offshore.

Excellent report, the way they all should be.
Newbee question - why and how is a head "donated" ? I bury mines in the backyard when the neighbor isn't looking.

Hubbs-Seaworld research institute, which runs the WSB hatchery/ tagging program under contract from CDFW is always asking for wsb heads to be returned for tag scanning and some other measurements. There are various drop off locations. If you want the otoliths returned, just request them on a note including your address, as well as catch date/ location as well as any other useful information like depth, water temp, gut contents, sex, bait.

Phishpood!

Govomit,

The Ocean Resources Enhancement and Hatchery Program (OREHP) is one of the few stocking programs dedicated to assessing the biological and economic impacts of its releases, and is the only program of its kind on the west coast of North America.

Each juvenile white seabass released through OREHP is tagged internally in the cheek with a 1 mm long stainless steel coded wire tag (CWT). This CWT is not visible externally on the fish and can only be located with a specialized scanning and detection device.

Hubbs-SeaWorld Research Institute needs your help to track OREHP’s effectiveness. Please save and freeze heads of adult white seabass with the stones/ear bones intact. HSWRI will scan donated heads for internal tags and collect the appropriate age and
genetic stock information.

Thank you both for the detailed info. If I ever catch a legal WSB, I'll know what to do.
