    Sweet! Lings on 20#. That's impressive! Did you make bait before or after sunrise? Lately I've been having trouble making bait after sun up. Great job!

    Thanks for the report. Are wolf eels tasty? They look as pretty as ling cod.

    Wolf eels are fish. That’s what I have heard. People up in Northern California go poke poling in the rocks to target wolf eels.

    They say they are delicious. I never had one but the way talk about them they are most likely good

    Like my dad says “ try it... you might like it”

    i have been able to find the Mac's inside the Harbor about a 1/4 mile west of where the dredge has been sitting near San Pedro. They have been deep and seem to come up after i fish them a few minutes..
