    Hello, all. New to the board and a new resident of Anacortes, Washington. Area 7. I had a chance to fish lingcod with a friend on an unmarked high spot off of Fidalgo Island. It was a quick trip, but we got one legal, several shorts and this beast - well over the slot limit size, so a quick picture and back she went! Water was 50 and I am still getting used to the tides/current out here, so I have no idea what to say about that!View attachment 1286925
    Wow nice solid Ling, slab city!:urno1:

    I've had lingcod smoke a cigar and take a shot of Patron before diving back in the water. They are very tough! Nice catch! I had one like that a couple of days ago off Half Moon Bay.

    I brought one of those monsters to my boat in MA7, too. Being solo, it took me a while to make sure it was oversized. Best I could tell, it was around 40”. Swam away in a flash.
    Very respectable Ling, some meat for the freezer, Good job! :urno1:
