Lingcod jigging along the pacific west coast is now in full swing! Landings up and down the coast are reporting absolute great fishing for ling cod and other rock fish. Right now is prime time to get out on a boat and fish for these tasty and fun to catch fish. Ling cod have a broad range of where they can be caught from Alaska to baja california. Ling cod get the biggest in alaska where fish over 50lbs can be caught.
While many landings offer live bait on these ling cod fishing trips, heavy ling cod jigs seem to always produce that jackpot fish. Fishing with jigs takes a little more patience as you may not be catching the smaller rock fish everyone else is on the bait. But if you can resist the urge to switch to anchovies or cut squid, chances are if there is a big ling cod in the area it will hit that larger jig that your fishing! So dont give up, keep on jigging!!!!
