I used to fish off Pier 70 for these when I was a child...probably late 80s early 90s...and now they are as far as I hear, not around anymore. Does anyone still catch any of these anywhere? I want to take my wife bottom fishing sometime...

I've caught them way deep out of La Push while halibut fishing. Typically 600ft. or deeper.....
I like 'em!

Yeah, just a piece of squid and a 4oz teardrop weight. Cast it out as far as you can. We would catch real big True Cod and sablefish in the early mornings...Not anymore though...and Pier 70 has been closed to fishing for some time now...

I think the 80's trawl fisheries pretty much decimated the groundfish populations in the sound. If you should catch one around here, let me know.
