Garibaldi Bottom Fish Report
« on: September 15, 2020, 11:25:35 AM »
Black Rock fishing has been really good out of Garibaldi lately.

These photos are from a couple of weeks ago.

Two deck hands and myself caught our 300 lb limit of Black Rock in 45 minutes of fishing.  (That is a record for me)

The fish were biting and the drift was nothing.  We just sat over the fish.

After 10 minutes of fishing we had to stop fishing se we could bleed the fish and get them into the box so we would have a place to stand.

Always enjoy your reports Walt!!  Some of those black rocks look big.

What's the prescribed way to bleed them, tuna, lings etc?

For rockfish
I stick I knife into the soft membrane just under the back edge of their gill plate.
Once I puncture the membrane I twist the knife.

Normally we catch a few fish and my fishing buddies bleed the fish while I move the boat back over the fish.

On this day the boat wasn’t  moving at all so we all stopped fishing and cleaned up the floor.

Looks like a good option since they closed coho on the ocean.  What depth of water were you finding them?

I always find black rockfish in or near 100 feet.

100 out to 150 feet
