DO NOT KEEP ME
(even though I'm half dead from being pulled out of a hundred feet of water)

As Brian / bsteves mentioned before: these are schooling fish, If you catch one - move on to another spot to reduce the killing of more Canarys  :smt045

Sudmucker,

You guys were in pretty shallow. There's a good possiblilty that you picked up a Copper, and not a Canary, as Canary's are generally at 100' plus.

Was that 58 feet? I thought Canary Rockfish were deep water Rockfish :smt017. I guess someone forgot to tell the Canarys:smt003.

Hard to read, but I think it was 131 feet.

At Fort Ross, on Saturday 10/14, I caught two canaries at one time in 55 to 60 feet of water.  I had a total of six for the day and they were all caught in water less than 80 feet deep.

I hardly ever fish deeper than 100 feet and I always catch a few canaries. Especially in Carmel Bay...have had days when I couldn't escape them!
If you're worried about barotrauma, just get a Shelton Release and rig it inline above your offering.

I get my share of them all the time. I've heard in deeper water during a "state bilogical" study, a boat caught a lot of bomer sized canaries and the marked schools were huge. Why are they protected?

Beautiful photo Moochie.

Sounds like the conservation measures are working.  I  caught several juvenile canaries while pre-fishing Albion before the meet.  Almost all were in the 40-60 ft  reefs around kelp.  Some did not have to be descended; they showed no signs of trauma and didn't waste any time getting down.
