Light Tackle Rockcod Fishing's popularity is rapidly growing among experienced anglers. Newcomers will discover how fun it is as they quickly master the technique. Nothing matches the thrill of hooking, playing and landing a fish on lightweight gear.
Trinidad offers some of the best opportunities for light tackle fishing on California's beautiful Northcoast. Located 30 miles north of Eureka, the rugged coastline provides miles of perfect shallow water rockfish habitat. Anglers enjoy the close proximity to the fishing grounds, with the average running time being under 1/2 hour.
