Without knowing what exactly I caught on the boats as a kid, this is my first confirmed of this species.

Now who wants to guess what it is? Caught in 80' of water north of Point Reyes. (released)

Thats a white striped orange rock fish. You should have kept it and filled it in front of DFW, they are a rare fish Smile

Since it is a rare fish and beatiful, kudos on the release.

Yes, looks like a youngish-sized yellow eye rockfish. Once abundant but now uncommon (at least in some areas).

But he tasted great! I'm kidding he was released. I got an adult last week, also released successfully.

Yea, those "protected" species are a pain, years past you'd haul'em up and have-to throw'em back- floaters! I've seen more than just a few cowcod go that way. Now-a-days all the boats I've been fishing on have some sort of "desender" to release the protected fish at depth, greatly improving their chance of survival, I'm not quite sure but I believe that theres a regulation that the sportfishing boat must have a devise to do that on board. A few years back I was on a certain party boat fishing in Monterey bay, the ocean was rough so we were fishing a reef just past the south end mile marker Bouy, the silver salmon were all over the place, we hooked several and (ofcourse) they all went back, if we wern't hooking a silver we were hooking a Canary "also protected". It got so bad that I went to the Capt. and asked him to move the boat, not a good idea in that case so consaquently I don't and won't fish with that outfit again! and no I won't mention their name, don't want to ruin it for the rest of you...mutt.

Not sure about norcal, but there definitely is a rule requiring charter boats to have one in socal. After putting the rule in place the the feds moved the depth back to 360 from 300 where it had been for several years due to increased catches of cow cod. Last study I saw said survivability was over 80% if fished were lowered on a descender in a reasonable time.
