Just to share if another newbie such as myself comes across this thread Oregon fish and wildlife is a really good resource for actual pics of each rockfish. I don't think it's all the species but Probly the most common. Here is a link:

I agree.
Shoprat's fish is a gopher.
& Scott's fish looks like a copper.

Scott's is a Copper.
IMO Gophers are among the hardest to clean - scaling or filleting
Blacks IMO beat Verms and Gophers for taste. I get a bit of Iodine flavor in some Gophers. All that Kelp they and their prey hang out in.

In the game of biggest fish, if you can't enjoy routinely gettin' your ass handed to you, by great fishermen, then you don't belong in the NCKA.
