    Default Valdez rock fish!?!?!?!

    Looking at heading to Valdez this weekend and I have never fished it before. Can a guy get his family on rock fish within 5-8 miles???
    Mabey 12 if it's nice out. Looking to get the kids on some fun fishing.
    Thanks guys.

    Default Very few

    Very few, you have to make it out to Jack Bay of so for anything decent. But sometimes, fish will be where they want too and you just never know.

    Default Middle Rock

    I you can make it to middle rock you can usually catch rock fish. I do not know what depth they are at but I usually find them at 300 plus feet. You can start shallow and work your way down. The shallower you go the smaller the fish. Jigs, rubber worms, spoons, and trolling herring works good. I like to use a trolling herring with a 4 to 6 oz weight. Last time I was there I caught a lot of the Dusky Rock fish along with some yellow eyes. Salmon pole work great for rock fish.
