The Adventure Continues… White Sea Bass
I have never spent much time thinking about White Seabass, and I had never even heard of the Hubbs-Sea World Research Institute — but this 2008 episode of California’s Gold has plenty of both fun and educational information. Bill Ernst’s world record fish, which he speared while free diving, still stands as the largest and the oldest White Seabass; but the positive news is that good-sized fish continue to be caught, whether from shore, kayak, or party boat. A healthy population of these West Coast fish is a great sign for future generations!
Huell meets up with Bill Ernst to see what he caught… the largest White Sea Bass ever! Then Huell heads down to the Hubbs-Seaworld Research Institute to learn more about these fish and even helps release a bunch of fry.
