Lingcod and Rockfish Charters
Lingcod and rockfish charters are available at Bobs Trophy Charters! We bundle together combo trips while we fish for lingcod or rockfish. You have a choice, you can either go out for halibut, lingcod, and rockfish, or you can simply do a halibut and rockfish combo, or you can do a salmon and rockfish combo.
Lingcod is a delicacy and enjoyable to eat but surely an ugly looking fish! These fish are round and long and must be 35 inches to keep.
Lingcod hide in rocky areas and bite on jigs. They are a lot of fun to catch as they wiggle to the surface. Since lingcod are available only in certain areas, the weather must be favorable for the boats to get to their rocky bottomed lingcod spots.
It’s a long run too as the captain takes you 50-60 miles out. If it all goes well- Bingo! If we can’t find your lingcod on your combo trip usually there is a high chance of landing a larger than normal halibut and plenty of tasty rockfish!
The 2017 Lingcod season runs from July 1st-December 31st. Limits are 2 per day, 2 in possession, however; we may ask that anglers retain only one Lingcod to preserve the fishery.
Rockfish such as black bass and yellow eyes are also found in Kachemak Bay and the Cook Inlet waters. They are light weight and usually fished as a halibut combo trip with the lingcod.
Ask about limits since it varies according to the type of rockfish caught, but on these charters you can potentially bring home 5 rockfish per day.
Don’t you just love that bright orange color of the yellow-eyes? These fish are delicious to eat and fun to catch. It’s amazing to see them as they shine brightly through the water being reeled up from the depths of the ocean floor.
