What about them...

White sea bass are identified from other croakers by their ridge along the belly, are blue-gray with dark speckling above and silvery below though juveniles have vertical dark bars. A white seabass sized at 28 inches in length or above is an appropriate catch although there are records of 5 feet/ 90 pounds white seabass, anything over 60 pounds is exceptional.  They feed off a variation of squid, pacific sardine, northern anchovy, pelagic red crab yet within some previously caught larger white sea bass pacific mackerel seemed to have been their favorite meal.  By the way 28 inches happens to be the CA size limit; be sure to check the fishing regulations for bag limits.
