You mean the net that broke? ;) You're probably a little late if you just knew about it, many of the sea bass are either caught or had dispersed to other areas. There's definitely a handful left still uncaught lurking around St John's for sure. Do visit the island and bring us some reports. :p

I guess most of the escapee had being netted !
Escaped fishes tend to lurk around where they were reared coz they have no skill to survive in the wild.
And food source is why they will remain around where they came from.
Of course there are the bold ones who will roam around and get lost.
They had being living in a small area for most of their lives.

Good luck to those heading to hunt down the escapees ...
I am sure there are still some lurking around.
Update us if you get lucky ! :clover:

The moment when you see something trailing your lure, your heart stops and you start praying, "BITE ME!"
