Big Inside Lings

Patrick's 35"  Ling

Our inside Lingcod fishing season has been underway since the first of the month and with great spring weather we’ve also been enjoying some quality fish coming to the boat. Opening weekend saw many fish in the 30″ range and last weekend Patrick took big fish  with  a 35″ 18# fish off the inside reef  with a 7 inch swimbait.

That fish stood only a week as Saturday Elliott took the top of the board with a 36″ 20# fish ( max retention length for the inside ) in 30 feet of water on a live greenling flylined above the kelp at slack tide. Two other keeper lings were caught with that same greenling, before it ultimately yielded 2 nice fillets for dinner– how’s that for conserving your bait !

  1. That’s the way to save on your bait! Lingcod is one of the best tasting Pacific northwest fish and ranks right up there with our Atlantic cod.
