Seward Alaska Ling Cod

Our first fishing was for Alaska silver salmon and we bagged our limit in about an hour. We then motored for a while to another spot where we went after some alaska halibut. These guys don't put up much of a fight - kinda like hauling a garage door up ... from 250 feet below the surface. But then I had a heavy fish that put up a bit of a fight at the end. We were all looking over the edge to see what the heck I was pulling up from the depths and as it became visible, Captain Crudd says "It's a Ling Cod ... and it's a HOG!"

Pretty nasty looking fish as can be seen below and you want to be careful due to sharp teeth and gills - very pre-historic looking. While there, we even caught a yellow eye rockfish just to add some color to our Alaska fish collection. BTW, if you like these pictures, check out the Rat Hunter.
