No lingcod pics from anyone yet? Have you guys been out hunting at all? I decided to try my luck last weekend. Jusy tied some large clousers and rigged up my 9wt. Didnt catch any lings but caught 4 decent copper rockfish. Going to try again next weekend.
Went out Ling fishing with Keene this morning. Started out with the fly rod but got hung up on bottom and my braided loop on the end of my fly line let go and I lost my 30ft section of T20. So I switched to the dark side and picked up the gear rod. Keene also fishing gear got 2 good rock fish that we lost both at the boat. We started moving around a bit more and finally found a good ledge that had a 15-20lb Ling. Keene also caught a 4.5ft dogfish which gave him a great fight. All in all a great morning on the water, and next time hopefully we will both be using our fly rods.

I'd like to breath some life back into this thread here. Haven't been online in a long time. Has anybody had any luck with lings yet? I recently met a dude who said he was catching them on big bait fish patterns tied with lead eyes and natural/orange rabbit strips. Got me inspired enough. Gonna try my luck in the salt this weekend.
