Depending on what the fish are doing, we will be targeting yellowtail or black rockfish. Once we have our limit, we'll go after lingcod using live bait, herring or jigs.
In 2021, we will have the ability to fish out past 50 fathoms for the first time in decades. This will open up more opportunities for landing the larger female lingcod, which are found in deeper water during some parts of the season.
