Captain Edward Hyde of the Broadbill patrols the ocean on behalf of the Fish and Game Commission to keep fishermen from participating in illegal activity.
Photograph appears with the article, "New Fish Patrol Boat Puts Poachers on Run," Los Angeles Times, 09 Dec 1935: 12.
The small boat sits in the middle of the water manned by a single person.
Text from newspaper caption: It's craft like the nondescript one in the top picture that the Fish and Game boat Broadbill watches for possible lobster poaching. The purse seiners are larger. The occupant of this boat stared in amazement as he was photographed. In the lower photo is shown a giant rock off San Onofre, near San Clemente, which is crowded with sea lions. This is in the center of the lobster fishing area. The patrol will extend from north of Santa Barbara to border.
