Alaska Lingcod & Rockfish Fishing Charters
Alaska Lingcod Fishing Charters
Our Alaska lingcod fishing charters take you into the pristine waters of Cook Inlet. Lingcod are the ugliest bullies of the rocky shelves of the salt. They are an extremely aggressive fish, which makes for great fishing, because they will hit just about anything. They will strike your favorite lure and are even known to attack and hold on to little rockfish that you may have caught while fishing the ocean. Many prefer the taste of Lingcod to halibut.
The season will start on July 1st and the limit is one per day per person. The Lingcod run around 25 to 35 pounds and some lucky guest will get a 55 or 60 pounder, and can even get as large as the state record of 82.9oz caught on July 27th of 2007.
Lingcod eat almost anything, including other lingcod. Bait used for fishing Alaska’s lingcod include large jigs with bait like squid and herring. These are very effective methods of catching Lingcod in Cook Inlet. These aggressive fish can be caught by just jigging with no bait but this is only if you don’t catch a rockfish first.

While fishing on our combo trips our of Seward not everyone will take a legal 35’’ lingcod due to stock – depletion. If your dream is to get monster of the deep then you will want to fish right after it opens on July 1st also you will want to book your 6 pack boat early.
These Rockfish are found close to rocky structures not to deep of waters. The Pelagic Rock fish have a pretty good chance of surviving. Most will be the black sea bass, yellowtail and the dusky rockfish.
Yellow eye is classified as a non pelagic rock fish. Just like the lingcod the state of Alaska has seen a decline in the Yellow Eye. One reason is because yellow eye are located in small parts of the oceans of Alaska some will stay one area or rock pile their whole life.
The largest on record was aged at 121 years old. Yellow eye grow slow and mature even slower males around 18 years and females around 22 years. The state of Alaska record for the Yellow Eye is 39 lb 4oz on July 18th in 2000.
Often times we get chances to catch multiple species like the Yellow Eye while on our Alaska lingcod fishing charters. Call us today to line up your Alaska fishing and lodging package adventure.
Non-pelagic Rockfish are normally found around deeper waters struckshers , and because they are found in deeper waters most will not survive catch and release because while being pulled up it effects their swim bladder. The one most commonly caught are quillback, copper rockfish and the one that most guest think are red snappers is our yellow eye.
We work very hard to help you book your dream Alaska adventure.
