Rodan,
yes, La jolla one of my favorites also.
The marine sanctuary there is teeming with wildlife which gets very used to having people dive and snorkel there.
Just 10 feet off the beach and you see seal/garibaldi/sand shark and all sorts of fish.
It's a shame as people still like to take advantage and just recently a spearfisherman shot a 200 lb bass in the protected cove.
He is now facing jail and a stiff fine

Seems the fish was so tame ,it used to be a local charachter and approached swimmers often. Lots of skill in spearing that
cheers Dal

I remember a fantastic set of footpaths on the cliff just down from Torrey Pines. Pity about the spearfishing, not so keen on that but each to their own I guess. It becomes a little insignificant when you see what some countries are plundering from the sea.

Did the guy know what he was doing, or was he just randomly spearing fish?

The guy knew what he was doing
Read the last paragraph of the report. Seems he has a record of such activity and shouldn't even be in the country!

Didn't seem much of a fine for a repeat offender,so maybe with luck he will be deported.Oh I forgot Bush is in charge;so no chance
Cheers Dal

Kinda makes me want to. A 50 year old human friendly fish is something I would love to encounter. I'm sure the locals would be quite pissed once the word spreads.
