I'm bringing the family to AK in a few weeks and we have a charter lined for a combo trip out of Seward. It will be either halibut/silver or halibut/lingcod, the decision hasn't been made yet so I'm looking for advice from you guys.
In terms of tablefare which is better silvers or lingcod?
In terms of 'thrill of the catch', which is better silver or lingcod?
Any other considerations?
At this moment, I don't have a real preference. I'm just looking forward to being able to experience this trip with the kids while they are still at home. To me, any fish is just lagniappe on what is sure to be a great trip.
Funny, I've talked it up quite a bit about +100lb butts and so the kids (three teens) have been hitting the weights and doing pushups so they "don't get pulled in", but by no means am I expecting anything close to that....Shoot, 20lbs would be an absolute blast...It's just cool they are taking it seriously enough to put a little work in...
