hey guys and gals!

   I want to try fishing from the rock to see if I can get a fish fix. What kind of rig is productive from the rocks? ???

"Rockcod Rig" makes it easy.  Buy some tobacco sacks or 3 or 4 ounce pyramid or medallion sinkers.  The Rockcod Rig is just like a shrimpfly rig, but there are two bare hooks vs the two shrimpflies.  Tie onto the Rockcod Rig, add your weight at the snap swivel end, put some bait on your hooks (squid is an easily acquired mainstay), and you're good to go.  Be ready though - you'll run into some strong fish, so stick with at least 20 pound on your main line, and 25-30 is better.  Let me know when you're going if you want some company.  I'm needing some fresh fish!   :)

I've always wanted to try fishing from the rocks too... just haven't known anyone who did it, and I don't know where to go... i would be interested in giving it a go...

When ever I can get over there, I have used a foam sliding bobber with a 2 oz jig head with a curly tail jig.
The Hard part is finding the right depth, but when you do it is like jigging from a boat or yak.

I've heard of that method for fishing the jetties, Jeff, but not tried it myself.  I hope for water that clear, but I'm usually fishing in less than 2' of viz - bait water.  At Shelter Cove I've scored some fish on a 5 ounce jig and split tail from the reef's edge at Abalone Point when the water was clear - that's a blast but the conditions that allow it are few and far between.
