Thread: Lings!

  1. #1

    Default Lings!

    Anyone do any fishing for the ling opener? Honestly, I don't know why more folks don't want to fish for lings over halibut. Jigging for huge lings on ultra light tackle setups is about as good as it gets. Anyone that wishes to share various ling tackle setups and techniques.

    Default Jigging!

    Jigging on light weight tackle is definitely the only way to go. I am "hooked" on catching giant lingcod. I am waiting for my Gamma 2lb test to get in so I can try and break the 16lb line class record.


    Boneyard, I am going to PM you. I need lots more jig tails as we lost about 20 plus tails alone, those lings like to eat the tails off.


    I want to come up with a simple jig that is virtually indestructable, one that will take some lingcod bites without losing any of the tail.

    If you come up with it let me know. I lost two weeks ago just on Halibut about 25 tails.

    Default On the Fly

    Yeah, next time out I am going to take my 9wt St. Croix and play around.
    I got a new light weight setup with a new Shimano 8ft Tescata jig pole with a Shimano Calcutta 400TE, it's unreal. I won't go back to anything else. Shimano has also came out with these Lucanus jigs that are bad as hell, expensive but very effective and very fun to jig with.

    Boneyard has a rod just for jigging that is feather light. Never had a rod feel some good in my hands. Along with that his reel was awsome.
