It doesn't look like 500 pounds until you see it by Juan Carlos.

Surely this isn't a giant sea bass, is it? Looks more like a grouper to me. I thought sea bass were endemic to the Pacific. I don't really know anything so I am not criticizing just curious.

Its a Goliath Grouper, just had its name officially changed from 'Jew Fish'. Sea Bass is the family Groupers are in.
We had a 'Jew Fish Street'name in San Pedro and its also been changed to Goliath.
probably about 50 years old and 500 pounds is a conservative guess.
