    Actually, Johnny boy, An authority no less AFSC on the NOAA website claims that the honeycomb are indeed considered "RED" species of rockfish (see upper left) http://www.afsc.noaa.gov/groundfish/RockfishGuide/Rockfish_Pages/Honeycomb_rockfish.htm

    Furthermore, you say "the new red" implying that they are not the "red" species that you might be familiar with, in fact, according to the NOAA wbsite again, here is their list of "red" species http://www.afsc.noaa.gov/groundfish/RockfishGuide/rockfish_red.htm
    The vermillion just being one of many.



    You say : "the only fish that might look somewhat like it is a juvenile Yelloweye" not true, they are NOT the only fish, according to John Snow, author of "Mexico fish, flora nand fauna" says they are " easily confused with the Freckled Rockfish, Sebastes lentiginosus (prominent dentigerous knobs on upper jaw; lacks honeycombing on sides)."

    My personal observation, and I'm sure most Bloody Decker's will agree, is that they look an awful lot like Starrys. Not only that, they are found at the same depth and location, again, just anecdotal, personal experience.

    Here's a starry http://ladiving.smugmug.com/FieldGu...ins/5562702_tp4fnt/2/349602209_pSh6mfr/Medium
    Heres a honeycomb http://friendsoflajollashores.com/marinelife/honeycombrockfish/#!prettyPhoto

    Additionally, I think its very presumptuous of you to tell someone to be smarter than a ticket. There are well over 50 species alone in the Southern California Bight. I say with the strictest confidence that most people, even YOU, couldn't correctly name more then half of those species on sight.

    Finally, because these dudes live longer then 30 years and never get that big, maybe you could gently suggest to Doug this article. http://www.bdoutdoors.com/story/dfg-rockfish-question/ rather than curse.

    touche... but when I threw the yelloweye in there, i was referring to protected rather than open season groundfish. If you want to get technical with it, then there are also a subspecies that fall under the Vermillion Rockfish: Sunset Rockfish. This also goes with Salmon grouper. Their subspecies is the Silver-Gray Rockfish. Just incase you were wondering.

    Well since you indirectly asked, there are 152 species from washington-baja and 83 in California.

    Great catch!!! For one thing I don't believe that you stated how many onboard??? The first pix shows a variety!! Chucklehead starrys Boccaccio salmon grouper brown rockfish. And most notably as you display so nicely in other pix. Vermilion rockfish or REDS!!! Did not anyone ever listen to their mom!!! If you don't have anything nice to say, then don't say nothing at all!!!!

    All the other 'info' aside, good job on the bottom fish. Folks concur [in all 57 states] that regardless of the species, rock fish are great eating.

    Caballo del mar simply stated limits of reds.. As shown by the neat display.. The first pic was simply assorted rockfish.. It wasnt that pertinent to post "limits of reds, 3 chuckeheads, 6 starrys, 5 boccacio, 7 honeycomb, and 1 striper"
