What type of bottom am I looking for if I want to target sculpin? I know when I have fished for them on party boats I ended up losing gear from time to time, so there is some sort of structure down there, but should I look for structure? Do I want the edges of structure?

It's hard to tell on the meter. Could be whitefish, staries, vermilion or...
But you're looking for a red cloud just above the bottom on the meter. Usually associated right above a rock or pinnacle.

Fish the double platforms area.
I feed mono through both eyes of torpedo sinker attach to leadhead grub with strip of bait. Drop and let it rock/roll
You can also add one other hook above if you like.
Long ways down for one fish.
But I like one at a time.

Sorry bud I guess I wasn't clear, I meant how to find them on your fish finder.
