I recently spent 11 days camping with my son who is working in Ucluelet. He had a couple of days off and we had a chance to do some shore fishing together, including a day spent fishing for rockfish and lingcod off the Wild Pacific Trail. The ruggedly majestic coastline scenery around Ukee is often breathtaking and the shore-casting action on this particular July day was a blast.

I've had a couple of people ask why we each have two rockfish -- in fact, one sounded more like an accusation. I suspect they didn't consider where we were fishing or, if they did, didn't bother checking the regulations. We were in Area 24 where you are allowed two rockfish per day, four in possession.

I usually fish in the Victoria/Sooke areas and I haven't taken a rockfish for several years because you are only allowed one down here at the tip of the island. I'd just as soon not try to catch them down here or, if I do, release them since they're caught in relatively shallow water fishing from shore so no damage is down in bringing them in.

There seemed to be no shortage of them up around Ucluelet/Tofino and they were mostly a lot larger than we get down here, so I didn't feel too bad about taking my limit -- which happened to be two. And those were the only two I took on the whole 11-day trip.

Gil,

Ha! You must have caught my wobble after I landed my first rockfish. Actually, the rocks right where we were fishing weren't too bad; the treacherous part was the 300 yards or so of jagged rocks we had to cross to get to that point. Fortunately Reid made his way out in stages and kept coming back to get my pack and fishing rod.

It has been a while since I've had rockfish, so I'll probably just go as natural as possible with the first fillets, but that ginger and sweet soy sounds appetizing. I might have to give that a try.

Cliff
