I was surf fishing in Sayulita, just north of PV when I landed a large fish I was not familiar with. It was about 15-18 lbs looked like a seabass, had yellow fins and tail. A local came by and said it was a raballo but he wasn't so sure. I don't have a picture of it and we returned it to the sea. Has anyone heard of a fish called a raballo. It measured out at about 40 inches long.

Thanks

Great fish, but mine did not have the black lateral stripe. A friend caught a much smaller one like yours that did have the stripe so we it least know now what he caught. I thought it might have been a croaker of some sort. Wish to hell I had a picture.

Thanks
