California Opaleye, Girella nigricans: Matt Quilter reported on a fishing trip to this spot just north of Puerto Santo Tomas in Bahia Soledad, Baja California, Mexico, where he caught opaleye up to an estimated 8 pounds. "These are the only two fish that I kept that trip," Quilter said of these photos. Not the greatest eating, but hey, it's fresh fish. These are average fish, probably in the 5-pound range (the knife in picture is 11 inches long). The other photo is the rocks at low tide where all the fish were caught."
