Default Monster Lingcod!

Catching some Monster Lingcod With the Family using 16 Oz Jigs and a Gibbs Delta double Glow Tail with a piece of salmon for bait. Depth range from 150 to 250 feet of water. Gear was the Penn Warrior reel with 60 pound braid on a Rapala Halibut rod. Biggest ling was 50 inches long and had one massive head on it. Stick around to the end of the video if you want to see the giant!

We are fishing small pieces of structure. Pinacles that will rise from 400 - 500 feet and top out at about 150. You can anchor but I find drifting works well to cover the structure and find active fish. What I'll do is drive to the top of the structure and then drift off. You always want to drift from shallow to deeper otherwise you get snagged really bad going from deep to shallow on these pinnacles. Usually the fish hit as you drop the lure anyways, so as you drift off the structure you jut keep letting out line. Jig a couple and drop to bottom again. Works well. When I get out to 300 feet I crank up and repeat.

The first one was probably around 20, Second one around 40 and the last one probably in between 50 and 60 pounds.

Kind of makes me feel like a wimp fishing for walleye. Now I'm depressed with a feeling of inadequacy..................

Haha! I really am sorry about that... if it's any constellation I still enjoy fishing for walleye too! The tug is the drug. But these fish are power houses.

A whole other level up there in Alaska I'm sure! Since moving to salt side I'm not sure I could ever move away. I love it!

I like your video. I've fished for ling cod on the Gulf of Alaska out of Seward. We used 1lb jigs with super sized white and yellow Mr. Twisters. The charter boat would drift from deep water up the sides of a reef. The lings were quite willing to bite.
