This 13 year old made the best of his day on the water by landing this huge white seabass!
Last week’s catch out of the Port San Luis Boatyard was spotlighted by a 62.7-pound white seabass. An angler from Grover Beach, Marcos James Trejo, was able to capture the monster fish while fishing with his father during their annual father-son fishing trip.
Aside from being the largest fish either of them have ever caught, it turned out to be the largest white seabass landed so far this this year. While nine white seabass were landed out of the Port San Luis Boatyard last weekend, none came close to the one landed by Marcos and his father.
Marcos’ dad, Mark Trejo, reported that the fight was “fierce” and that the struggle to land the fish took more than 15 minutes. Once they managed to get the fish to the boat it took efforts by both Marcos and his dad to actually lift the fish over the rail of the boat.
Something tells me these two will not forget this catch any time soon!
