Fishing

They are also known as greenies and green snapper.

Features: These fish are olive green to dusky-brown with some light mottling towards their top sides. Their fin membranes are yellow.

Habitat: Yellowtail rockfish will usually be found in offshore waters and often suspended over deep reefs and rocky habitat to as deep as 900 feet.

Technique: Best success will be by first locating suspended schools of yellowtail rockfish in offshore areas during periods open for fishing offshore, and then working rubber tail jigs or shrimp flies through the schools.
