2023 LOCAL ROCKCOD SEASON CLOSED
Unfortunately the Federal and State regulators have issued an emergency nearshore rockcod and lingcod fishery closure for the remainder of 2023.
These trips are perfect for the family and for a group of adults. We fish within a couple miles of shore. We target rockcod (also called pacific snapper or rockfish). We occasionally hook into lingcod and halibut.
Each angler is allowed to take home up to ten rockcod (pacific snapper) and up two lingcod. There is no size limit on snapper but there is a size limit for lingcod. These are some of the best eating fish you’ll ever have.
We use proven rod and reels that are configured to work well on our boat and easy for you to use. But, if you have a lucky rod you would like to try out by all means bring it! And, if you have some tackle you would like to try out bring that too. We use eight-ounce leads so please have something in the weight range to minimize tangles. We use fresh dead bait when available or live bait such as anchovies, squid and mackerel.
When we get done fishing, your deckhand will filet or gut-and-gill (whole fish) your catch to take home.
We hold the IGFA (International Game Fish Association) world record for olive rockcod (set in 2016). We know what we’re doing and we do it good.
