    We don't get to fish that deep. They max us out at 180 right now. They tried to let us fish deeper, but a-holes kept too many Yelloweye so they shut that down again.

    I got a massive Red near the Farallons 2 weeks ago. 10lb+ 100feet of water.

    How about you give us the numbers for these 2 to 4 lb. rockfish you're getting at La Jolla and Point Loma ? most of what's caught there is usually less than a pound.

    The biggest of the reds in my pic was 13lbs. As mentioned, we only get to fish up to 180 feet of water. Most of my lings and such are caught in 20 to 120 feet of water.

    270 spot about 7 miles west of mission bay jetty or 32 spot in La Jolla. Find the structure and you find the fish. Weed out the small ones by fishing whole squid or dines.

    I often fish near Big Sur which is south of Monterey and the regs allow for up to 300 ft for rockfish/lingcod. We tend to find huge lings and rockfish at that depth. The pity of which is that we have to wind these larger fish all the way up. I tend to get seasick so after winding up a few, I tend to call it a day. But the fish are huge so I'm happy about that.

    I always wonder about the depth of rock fishing in northern California - so is 40 feet for you guys like 250 feet for us? In that case, what's at 250 feet for you?

    ummm.. 1562.5 feet?

    You might have had a better chance of getting some Marlin numbers had you asked for that instead. Those that have knowledge of local spots that will hold the type of rockfish you asked about arent going to cough them up to some dude they dont know on a free website. They are too hard to come by and they stay productive over time because people keep their mouths shut. Too many people with boats nowadays and good local rockfish spots dont handle a lot of pressure very well.
