Fishing in the Pacific
Many fine game fish are found off the Pacific coast. The tuna has already been described. There are several smaller tuna, good game fish, but a description of these cannot be given here. In the Pacific along the coast of California and southward is found the black sea bass or jewfish, an ocean monster running up to 800 pounds in weight. It resembles the black grouper of the eastern ocean, but is a finer fish. In appearance it is very much like a monster black bass. It is caught by still-fishing from an anchored boat in about fifty feet of water, tuna tackle being used. Albacore is used for bait. The fish puts up a great fight, but is not to be compared with the tuna.
