February 3, 1983 [LAT]: “Fishermen off Santa Cruz Island pulled up a rare catch from the ocean floor — a 500-pound bomb from World War II. Coast Guard spokesman Lt. Noris Turner said the bomb was hauled aboard the 57-foot Karen Marie at Chinese Cove, on the northeast side of the island. An explosives team boarded the fishing boat to retrieve the bomb and take it to the Seabee base at Port Hueneme. Turner said the team indicated that the chances of the bomb exploding were remote.”
