Ling Cod

The Lingcod is neither a Ling nor a Cod, but it resembles both of these species so its name hase become a derivative of its lookalikes. It has been observed up to 60 inches long and 130 lbs but as a general rule Lingcod are usually half or a quarter that size. Their meat is often a blue-green color before it is cooked and is prized by many anglers. Its looks are somewhat prehistoric with bulging eyes, a large toothy head, and muddy coloration that give it the appearance of belonging to another world.
