    Anybody know what this is? I'm guessing some variety of a Wrasser. Caught it off LJ in about 70ft while rock fishing about a month ago. I'm guessing they are not that common here in SD and probably a long way from home. IMG_1249.JPG

    What they said. Very common fish actually, but hard to catch because of small mouth

    Yep, rock wrasse. Used to catch those things near the coast guard dock in Newport bay when I was a kid. Small hook and mussel for bait. Cool looking fish.

    They're fairly common, I've caught and released a lot of them in the rocky Dana Point area.

    I agree with these two comments.

    Seen them skin diving in Laguna Beach/D P areas. Caught a few over the reefs when fishing with freshwater spinners and 4 lb. test with tiny hooks, same locations.
