Oregon Coast Fishing For Rockfish | A Journey Down The Oregon Coast

  • Published on:  3/12/2020
  • From Newport Oregon To Rockaway Beach, I've never fished in areas so beautiful. I got to experience a bit of it all, from fishing from shore on the beach to fishing from rocks and cliffs, the knowledge I'm gaining along the way is priceless and the experiences gained will never be forgotten. As I travel along hwy 101 I am always in search of new Boondocking areas with great views and fishing opportunities.
    I started the morning with a pretty scary situation and almost lost myself and some gear to the ocean, but all ended well and here I am, a wiser person.
    I always fish from the jetty when I target rockfish like black bass, kelp greenling, rock greenling, and Lingcod, but I decided that I needed to step out of my comfort zone and expand my fishing game. This was probably one of the best moves I could have made.
    This trip turned into an amazing day of fishing in some amazing places, some of which were pretty sketchy to get to.
    Though I was casting swimbaits for lingcod or some other rockfish, my successful rig for the day was the high low rig. I was using nightcrawlers and some bacon as well...... I had to try it.
    Ive never had to put in so much work to catch rockfish, but this isn't a jetty, so really I have no clue what I'm doing.
    After a lot of lost gear I was able to catch a couple of fish, the first one being to cool looking to keep, so I threw that one back. I'm not 100% of what it was since I'm not super experienced in the salt water fishing game, though I am learning.
