Years ago when I was in the Coast Guard, when we would go on patrol looking for Russian trawlers. There is a sea mount about 100 miles from the mouth of the Columbia River. We used to go out there and fish for a day before the patrol and catch some giant red snappers and have the Philipino cook fry 'em up with his special tempura batter. MMMMMM GOOD
