The exceptional rockfish action came to a close, when the season ended Dec. 31. Channel Island Sportfishing boats were all out daily right up until the end, hammering limits of rockfish — along with a nice mix of lingcod, sheephead, whitefish and blue perch. Sea Jay was on a full-day trip Dec. 31 with 12 anglers, and they had 120 rockfish and 15 lings. But that’s over — for now.
