    To the OP, VERY NICE Ling-O-Saurus you have there, lots of good eats!!!

    .
    To Jason,

    When you say "PS" I assume you mean Puget Sound.

    Lingcod like the one in this thread for the most part are far a few between that big anywhere other than the ocean out of MA's 2-3 or 4.

    The one in this thread appears to have been caught out of La Push, MA3.

    @Griddles I have fished Puget Sound lings for a few years and have not hooked any keepers. I don’t try much any more. Also, there is a slot where you can’t keep anything above a certain size.

    This ling was caught somewhere between La Push and Japan. It is not a super secret spot as you can tell from the 50 boats in the background.

    Wow....you could fit your head inside that mouth!!!! Very nice!! I would have kept it as well, but it's common practice up north to release big females. Does anyone know how to tell a male from female at that size? I've never had to make the choice, but curious??

    Great job...

    .
    Most if not ALL Lingcod that big are females I was told years ago.

    They grow fast and breed young so unless you long line or net them to death in the ocean off the coast of WA the sport fleet can't really hurt the populations much unless the Pacific Ocean starts to be calm more than it's not as good Ling fishing is 30 plus miles off shore and the number of days most sport boats can fish off shore is normally not a very big number annually.
