White seabass
Atractoscion nobilis

The white seabass is the king of the inshore realm from Baja California’s Magdalena Bay to Central California’s Monterey Bay, although the big croakers have been caught as far north as Juneau, Alaska and there is a sizeable population in the northern Sea of Cortez.

Actually not white, but a silvery grey that is at times barred (females), seabass are also known as the ghosts of the coasts and islands for the way large individuals haunt and move about the kelp beds of the Californias. They are highly migratory both in a coastwise direction and from shallow to deep. Prohibitions on gill nets in California waters have seemed to contribute to an increase in both the population and the average size of seabass.

White seabass, also known as croaker or biscuits, are voracious feeders and water conditions that favor good populations of sardine, mackerel, anchovies and squid seem to have correspondingly high numbers of seabass. Many of the largest fish are taken by speardivers, but a good number of croaker over 60 pounds have been caught on live mackerel, which is the bait of choice when squid isn’t around. Sometimes that can simply be daytime hours. By far the biggest numbers of seabass taken by recreational anglers are on live or fresh dead squid.
