    Default Late Season Lingers

    Have never really targeted ling cod this late in the season, however for the first time in 30 years I'm not going moose hunting this fall and have some time on my hands. I think the biggest challenge is going to be finding the right weather window to get where I want to go, barring that, anybody got tips for ling cod in September? Do they populate the same areas as you'd expect in July/August?

    I think that even though lings are pelagic, they will be fairly close to their summer haunts in the fall. No experience here.....i can’t hardly find em in the summer!

    The larvae are pelagic and then studies say they kind of settle in rearing type areas and then as they reach maturity they stay fairly close to the dame areas but in october ish they move to shallower spawning grounds nearby their summer haunts.

    pretty much the same areas all year. Honestly my best ling fishing in Kodiak was around X-mas time.

    I saw you were tied up at the dock for the weather window yesterday. Calm and beautiful weather outside of Seward in the gulf yesterday is an understatement! Hope we get a few more days like that.
