King Harbor: Something Smells Fishy?!.....

(Photo source: L.A. Times)

P.U.! Is it just me or does King Harbor stink. If you were there yesterday, March 8, 2011, you would definitely have SMELT it. We're talking lots of "anchovies" and we are not talking pizza! Sardines! Break out the calculator because there were too many to count.

Seems like a ton of small fish took a wrong turn and headed into King Harbor, where they suffocated due to a lack of oxygen in the water in this confined space because there were just too many of the little suckers!

Our advice, if you are planning a trip to the south bay anytime soon, is DO NOT order pizza with anchovies. Trust us on this one!
