Wild Rockfish Are Finally Back

We Love It When You Share Our Content


With summer officially over and the arrival of much cooler Fall weather, the local wild rockfish has “gone ashore” and started trapping in the pound-nets. These are not entanglement nets. These nets trap the fish alive.

If you travel the Bay, you will notice what looks like a long 200-yard backyard fence in the water that leads to a “pound”. The pound is a netted square area with a trap door. The fish travel down the backyard fence, enter the trap door, and then can’t figure out how to escape.
