Lingcod is a member of the greenling family and isn’t the only species of fish on the West Coast to have blue-green meat. Relatives to the Lingcod are the rock greenling and the kelp greenling which are sometimes tinted turquoise like the unrelated cabezon, which shares the same habitat.

Sevengills and Leopards: Well, it’s been a fairly slow start to the spring shark season, but it finally just started to roll in full speed. It appeared to be a mini “Grinner Gathering” as 4 of us all showed up at the same spot on the same night without any communication. Once you start getting […]

The Sevengill Sharks are returning to the local beaches after a few month absence. There has been a lot of big swell, bad tides and lack of fish which has added to the slow shark fishing, but finally might see a sign of life. It is not a big shark by any stretch, but this […]
A Great White Christmas: Well, here in Southern California, it is not very common (if at all) to have a white Christmas. One of our Prehistoric Soul members, Joe, however proved us wrong! Only armed with some spinning gear, he hooked, battled and landed a Great White from the surf all while fishing solo. The […]
