    Hi SDFISH,

    Caught this sweet looking fish off the jetty this past weekend.

    Not sure if this is a baby Garibaldi or some type of perch.

    Any ideas? I CPRed it since it was not familiar to me.

    Thanks!

    definitely not a line-shy kind of fish.

    Like @Werfless said it's a black surf perch aka buttermouth sea perch. Used to be protected now they aren't.

    It is a Buttermouth Perch. Pretty fish and that looks like a good sized 1 by the colors. Good job. They're scrappy.

    Juvi garibaldi are usually more of a blue color.

    Yeah they are quite the variety. I catch a lot of purple looking ones at the Kelp.

    Juvenile Opaleye can be colored to a soft teal and orange to their regular mossy green. I was literally hand feeding some yesterday that were the most bizzar color ever in La Jolla. They had 2-3 sets of spots as well.
