Qualifying on the merits of popularity and decline, two groups of fish have for the last four years starred in a program to help assure the future of their species. One group, white sea bass, a member of the croaker family, is kept comfortable in a large tank here on the water's edge at Mission Bay. Farther north, a school of California halibut does its thing in a marine laboratory behind the locked doors of the Edison Power Plant in Redondo Beach.

The first Pacific gray whales of the migration season passed close to shore Tuesday morning and were sighted by anglers aboard South Bay sportfishing boats. The whales migrate from the Bering Sea to Baja California lagoons where they mate before returning to the Arctic. Again this year all South Bay sportfishing landings will begin whale watching trips Dec. 26 and continue seven days a week until April. Each trip is led by naturalists trained by the Cabrillo Marine Museum.

Bob Oyama of Long Beach has donated another fish to the Cabrillo Marine Museum. Oyama, who was fishing for yellowtail Monday aboard the Matt Walsh at the rockpile, sent his bait toward the bottom and hooked the largest sheephead of the year. The fish was netted and placed in a bait tank. After the boat docked, the museum truck picked up the fish and transported it to the museum. Oyama has donated fish to the museum on several occasions.

We recently saw someone wearing what has to be the coolest Hollywood vanity baseball cap of the moment. No, not one advertising the mega-flop "Cutthroat Island," although, come to think of it, that could be a real collector's item someday. This black chapeau read: DreamWorks SKG Playa del Rey." We instantly coveted one for ourselves, so we called DreamWorks SKG. (The entertainment company is still parked in North Hollywood, years away from its Playa del Rey home.

It's a wide open white sea bass bite off Catalina Island as anglers continue to catch 30-to-50-pound lunkers. Frank Hall at 22nd Street Sportfishing in San Pedro recalls the early 1950s and '60s when the bass caught off of Catalina's west end weighed upwards of 70 pounds. Hall said some big fish were also caught during the days of El Nino, but not the quality his boats have been returning with the past two weeks. Anglers are using squid for bait and 30-pound test line.

June 26, 1986 | ISAAC CRONIN and PAUL JOHNSON, Cronin and Johnson are co-authors of "The California Seafood Cookbook."
The white sea bass is found from San Francisco south to the Bay of Magdalena in Baja and in the northern Gulf of California. The fish appear off the coast of Mexico in late spring, and they occasionally find their way to California markets. This month, the California sea bass season opened for three months. At this time, the supply should be consistent and the quality greatly improved over the Mexican fish, which takes considerably longer to reach the marketplace.

The summer fishing season is busting out with a round-the-clock abundance of game fish. Big barracuda have been biting through the monofilament line and anglers using light line are now using short wire leaders and catching limits. For the past two weeks, the small bait situation has created some problems and squid have been hard to obtain. Anglers using blue and white jigs during day and twilight trips have been catching near limits of sand and calico bass.
