I'm on an Island where pretty much no one fishes from the rocks. I need tips to find rock marks for species such as pollock, bass and wrasse for example what sort of ground, how deep should the water be...

thanks.

For pollock try points, narrows, and anything that 'stands out' with plenty of current and deep water. For wrasse look for shallower more sheltered water such as the inside of gulleys and bays with boulders and some weed/kelp. Bass can be trickier to locate but they can be found in many different marks and not just the rocks. Shallow weedy mixed ground with plenty of current and cover is best for them. Much more time/tide sensitive than the other two species...
At this time of the year its almost impossible not to catch something from the rocks!

All the best

If you're on an island that doesn't see much shore fishing from the rocks, just find a headland close to you that's easy to get to and try it. Fish from low to high then try high to low, also fish big tides and smaller ones. After half a dozen trips to this mark in different conditions tides etc and its not producing move along the coast to the next mark and repeat. working out marks takes ages but is worth it when you do.
Pollock wrasse and bass share a habitat so if you find one the others should show up at some time. Wrasse seem to prefer to stay out of strong current though.
