NEWPORT BEACH — Unusually cold Pacific Ocean waters off Southern California have put a damper on sportfishing, leaving many anglers walking away from fishing boats empty-handed, if not outright despondent. Even some of the locals are starting to reconsider their daily jaunts down to the shore to surf cast off Balboa Peninsula. Fresh from a successful fishing vacation off of Cape Cod, Alex Bassinne, a regular fisherman down near the Wedge, said he's getting a tad frustrated at continually reeling in nothing.

And now for something completely different: Nhu Y Ca 8 Mon, a Vietnamese restaurant posing as a quaint little cottage with a deer head in the foyer, leading to a faux indoor garden replete with faux trees, Christmas lights, faux foliage and booths surrounded by faux trellises dripping with faux flowers. There is also a very fancy VIP room complete with karaoke bar, which is available to all diners unless there is a special event.

Legendary Newport Beach dory fisherman Shorty Gunther once hooked a 580-pound swordfish and had a St. Bernard that was trained to rescue swimmers in distress at local beaches. Tales of how Gunther powered his boat with a salvaged airplane engine survived long after Gunther last fished off Newport Beach. Gunther had a knack for catching fish. He set a record for catching black sea bass during the 1926 season, the Times reported on Nov. 13 of that year, catching 67 of the massive fish, all weighing between 200 pounds to 800 pounds.

Daniel Richard Moreno, 19, will be in court Friday for a pre-trial hearing after pleading not guilty last week to misdemeanor animal cruelty. Police said that about 3:30 p.m. March 14, Moreno was fishing on the pier and set one of the fish he caught on the ground next to him. That’s when a pelican standing on a nearby building’s roof swooped down and tried to grab Moreno’s fish, authorities said.
