The sculpin is an ugly little rascal. It is known as the scorpion fish because of large, horny spines. An angler who is hooked can suffer excruciating pain. There are 40 species in California waters. Sculpin have saved many days when fishing is slow and game fish refuse to grab bait. Anglers can catch the little thornback by going to the bottom in any South Bay rocky reef. If an angler gets spiked, ice can keep the selling down, but not the pain. Bill Tower, biologist at Cabrillo Marine Museum, said to his knowledge there is no relief that will immediately dissipate the pain of the spines, which can last from 20 minutes to--sometimes--a full day. On party boats, the spiny thorns are removed before the fish is taken off the hook.

As reliably as masses of sea bass gather off the Southern California coast each summer, boatloads of anglers arrive to reel them in. But their bountiful catches are an illusion, scientists say. The populations of kelp bass and barred sand bass, two of the most popular — and easy to catch — saltwater fishes in Southern California, have plummeted 90% since 1980, according to a study led by a researcher at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography...

Doug Oldin, the harbor master at Two Harbors on Santa Catalina Island, says early indications point to an excellent sportfishing season. According to Oldin, water temperatures taken by the USC Marine Laboratory at the isthmus have ranged from 62 to 65 degrees, above their seasonal norm of 58. The warm waters have led to some unusual catches. Two trigger fish have been caught and sea turtles have been spotted off Catalina beaches.

It's twilight time. The popular trips for sand bass have started from South Bay sportfishing landings with departure times at 6 and 6:30 p.m. When the party boats turn on their floodlights it looks like a city at the fishing grounds. Spawning sand bass bite anything thrown at them, feathers or bait. Some individual boats had limits of 4- to 5-pound fish on most trips this past week. What does a boat do when the 10-fish limit is reached? A short move from the sandy bottom to deeper water and a steady anchovy chumming bring the barracuda up. That's not to overlook the daytime wide-open barracuda bite at Rocky Point.

Women anglers for the past two decades have been catching up to the men. Take a look any day aboard a party boat or private fishing boat and you will see women casting and reeling in fish, either from casting a jig or from a bait cast. Marilyn Robinson of Long Beach, a galley cook on sportfishing boats for four years, says she has observed women having more success than men "on many ips." What does she do on her day off? She fishes. Vickie Rubinson of West Los Angeles said her boyfriends enjoy hearing her brag about the times she tries to outdo them, either surface fishing or diving at Catalina Island.

Where do they come from and where do they go? The answers to these questions about sand bass may be provided by Capt. Russ Izor of 22nd Street Landing in San Pedro who has obtained support for a three-year study. Very little is known about the habits of the mature sand bass except that they travel the waters between Baja and Southern California's sandy beaches. There is no documented biology on the bass that invade our water every summer to spawn and then disappear. Izor met with the County Fish and Game Commission recently and generated money to do a three-year survey.

Anglers take a step into history when they board the Betty O, known as the rock cod special, which operates out of Marina del Rey Sportfishing. The Betty O was built in Wilmington at the William Muller boat yard and launched in 1924. It was christened Betty O in honor of Betty Oldfield, the granddaughter of William K. Wrigley, the owner of the Catalina Island Company. Muller had the distinction of having built every boat for the Wrigley Company in the 1920s and '30s.
