White Seabass - Perfect Stone Shot


Another white seabass clip, this one is short and sweet. A late afternoon spring dive held great visibility by California standards, and lucky for me, many school size (15-30lbs) white seabass also stalking the kelp bed. Taking full advantage of a rare opportunity, a nice white seabass presents itself to the camera for an upclose head shot on camera.
