Fish Tales

About 25 years ago I snagged a huge ocean sun fish (mola mola)with a treble hook hopkins lure while fishing the back side of West End II. At first I thought is was a shark when I saw the huge fin. But when I snagged it, it rolled on it's side I could see it's ugly head, and then my line snaped. This fish had to weigh several hundred pounds. They are harmless and they occasionly venture into our inlets.

I also had the pleasure of seeing a 15' pilot whale in about 24' of water when I was fishing in my boat right off the beach near Long Beach about 4 yrs. ago.
