You may be right, Bob - this was taken on the beach at Oso Flaco Lake. My husband said the man had probably been fishing in the ocean (you walk across the lake on a boardwalk which goes to the ocean). There are ocean perch and according to my research they move into shallower water in the summer. There is also a redtail surfperch at Avila Beach which is only a few miles north of here. When I asked him what he had caught, the fisherman said "perch" so that's what I went with.

Though I live in Nebraska where beaches are scarce, I was lucky enough to be on vacation on the California coast when this challenge was announced. I shot all week with it in the back of my head. This was my favorite capture - in spite of its being a portrait and not having that much beach visible.

I'm thinking that it's probably not perch.
