    Default Knight Island rockfish

    I am heading down thanksgiving weekend to do some deer hunting around knight island and the north end of montegue islands. How is the rockfish/lingcod fishing around this area. I am not wanting to catch a limit just enough for dinner. Is it worth bringing a rod to fish if we dont have fresh backstraps for dinner?

    Yes, there are plenty of rockfish anywhere there is a sharp droppoff there. Should be easy fishing, at least it is in the summer, and I don't think they go anywhere.

    The N.W. side of Knight has some great yelloweye concentrations on the steep underwater piinacles that rise to 80-90' of depth.
    Should be easy pickings to put a few in the boat.
    Good luck deer hunting!

    Non-pelagic rockfish do not migrate or move far from there home local. They will still be there waiting for you.
    Your bait stinks and your boat is ugly
