“Lingcod” is somewhat of a misnomer, as it is neither a Ling or Cod, but a a member of the greenling family. It actually gets its name from the similar taste and texture of its meat to that of the Cod. The Lingcod is only found off the west coast, from Alaska to Baja.
Anglers fishing the Southern California fishing grounds prize the Lingcod, and favor the challenge of catching what is sometimes called the “dragon of the deep.” The Lingcod has the heart of a warrior and bursts from the depths with a wrath that pins anglers to the rail, destroying lines in seconds, and giving even the most experienced angler a run for their money.
While challenging and elusive, the Lingcod are still not match for our knowledgeable Captains. The Lingcod are not schooling fish, so it takes considerable skill and effort to find the beasts' lair. We won't reveal out hot spots here, but rest assured, if the Lingcod are biting, the Channel Islands Sportfishing skippers will place you in position for the perfect ambush.
