As everyone that hunts White Seabass already knows, the big girls show up first and this year it looks like its no different. Each year the fish have been getting bigger and despite some complaints at the strict regulations and MPA’s over the past couple years it has been great for the fishery and the size of the fish reflect that.
This stud was 76.4 lbs which is a benchmark fish and I’m hoping in the coming months that I’ll see some Spearo’s with fish of similar size or bigger. Judging by Ernst current WR and reports that divers have seen some in the 90-100# class in recent years… the record will be broken again soon.
Most of you will dismiss this because it is fishing but you need to read between the lines here and become a better spearfisherman by noticing the key decision these guys made that let to catching the fish of a lifetime.
Think outside the box, the plan can always change.
It never hurts to investigate activity that you see on the surface and can lead to some of the best diving of your life. Always be flexible in your plans and be ready for anything.
Have any of you found big White SeaBass in open water before on bait schools?
