My dad and I fished off a skiff we rented on sunday. We fished kelp beds and rocks in the bay at Trinidad, having best luck at Thumb rock. We outfished everyone else that day on skiffs by alot. Most other people only caught 4-5 rockfish. We used split tail scampis on 3/4 ounce leadheads, 1/2 ounce hairraisers, yamamoto spider grubs, and kroks. We caught over limits each. Definetely fun on light tackle 12 lb test. Unfortunately we didn't get any lings like we wished but my dad had one huge hit and shredded plastic. We only kept 11 because we already had a ling in the freezer.

total
lots of big black rockfish up to 12-20 in
big grass rock fish a little over 15 in
1 big greenling caught by me
3 cabs 12-14 in caught by me too in one hole. My dad probably would have caught some but he was getting a snag out

Hi EBF. Good fishing there and great pics! I've been to the pier though I'm not familiar with the surrounding areas by name. Did you venture into deep waters in the skiff? The fish seem to be mostly shallow water rockfish though the blue/blacks can be had at 60-70ft as well.
Thanks again for the report.
