Rockfish are viviparous, meaning they give birth to live young.
Features: The redstripe rockfish appears red and pink. The dorsal fin is shallowly notched and the lateral line is a distinct red stripe. It has dark lips, a protruding lower jaw, and greenish stripes radiating from the eyes.
Habitat: Commonly found over high-relief, rugged bottoms from 500 feet to 900 feet below the surface.
Technique: Best success will be by first locating suspended schools of redstripe rockfish in offshore areas during periods open for fishing offshore. Work rubber tail jigs or shrimp flies through the schools.
