White Seabass caught 5-20-09. This is a big upgrade from my last wsb, an 8 pounder from two years ago. She weighed in at 33 1/2 lbs. on the official Sullivan bathroom scale. I decided to risk losing a mack to a seal than have a bottom feeder pick apart my dead squid deep in the thick kelp. A one ounce egg sinker put the greenie in range and it took full strike on my lever drag reel to slow her down. Man do those fish pull hard. It was a beautiful day with birds crashing and dolphins everywhere. Good luck to those of you who are going out there this weekend.

Nice fish, Gary!

Let me know if that fish had any eggs, a trophy indeed, but most the females that long weigh closer to 50 lbs this time of year.

I'm stoked for you, Gary!
