THE FISHERY - From small fishing villages along the northern part of the Baja Peninsula, Day Boat Fishermen set out in small Wooden Pangas for a day of hand lining and scallop diving. The honor of tradition and familial unity are drivers in this amazing Day Boat program. 

THE FISH - Like many Rockfish, The Red Rock Cod has a phenomenal moisture that translates to a rich and succulent texture. The raw light pink flesh cooks to a brilliant paper white. The Rock Cod has a blank slate canvas that accepts many applications. The light flavor is a vehicle for fresh Spring and Summer herbs, fruits and vegetables. Light Butter Sauces, Vinaigrettes, Gastriques and Purees are perfect for this Hand Line delicacy.
