China rockfish are generally solitary and reside in spaces between rocks.
Features: These fish have a dark blue or black body, mottled with yellow and with a broad yellow stripe running along their side.
Habitat: The China rockfish dwells in relatively shallow water, 10- to 400-feet deep, on rocky reefs.
Technique: They readily take both bait and lures. China rockfish will be caught in areas with lots of rocks and crevasses, and by keeping the bait or lure very close to the bottom.
