Boone plants the seed


It was a baseball player, specifically Ray Boone of the Detroit Tigers who in 1958 was the first to suggest the florida-strain of largemouth bass should be planted in San Diego. San Diego Biologist O.P. Ball listened, cleared out Upper Otay and brought in 20,000+ fingerlings from Florida. The fingerlings blossomed and were used to stock the rest of the reservoirs, leading to the giant bass we have today.
