Prince Rupert Ling Cod

Ling Cod

     One of my favorite ways to gather food is to target Lingcod. You are allowed to keep three of these voracious predators daily. My GPS system coupled with a bottom contour map and an accurate sounder allows me to target these fish where they school. It is not uncommon to have multiple hookups on every drift. I hunt down the big ones between rocky pinnacles and steep drop off ledges.

The Orca Mist is equipped with all the gear to whack these fish. My jigging rods and reels are built to withstand even the biggest of lingers. Personally I like the ones between 15 to 25 lbs because of their delicate white meat. There is world record Lingcod out there and I know where they live. Be prepared to have a tough workout.
