In my quest for the best Lingcod plastics I have tried to gather some of the largest offerings out there and will be testing them out against each other this year.

This batch of pictures was just comparing single and double tails.

Which have you guys used? How many can you pick out by shape?
Any that I missed that you all use?

The two red tails are for size comparison. They are standard 4" and 6" tails. The lead head is a 8oz.

So what is the brand and size of each?

#1 _________ #2 _____________#1 ____________ #2 __________ #3 _________ #4

I think Cali lings are best attracted to moderate sized soft body lures. I like the looks of the two smallest single tails, and the smaller twin tail. Mostly I'm fishing with 2-4 ounce heads, and so i use the bodies that seem tbe best balanced on those.
I do use the giant-getters once in a while, but usually charter trips where we're fishing 150'+. Even then I only use the huge lures because of the leadhead weight, and I prefer to use iron when fishing that deep anyway.
All of my big lings were caught on either 7" scampis or similar sized swimbaits.

Those items do work, but I agree with the other guys that smaller stuff works too.  What I found was that smaller fish hit the smaller stuff too, so truly targeting the big lings, giant cabs, and lunker rockfish that aren't afraid of anything is best done with big ugly lures and baits.

I scored some of these Panther Martin's at a sale table years ago and they hammered some huge fish...

You're biased! :smt044
Yeah, for AK the bigger the better. I used 10-12oz heads with both huge twin tail and the giant kalins single tail my one time out AK hali fishing. We had hunks of salmon added on as incentive.
Here in Cali I'm usually only fishing 40-100FOW so I'm using the more moderate sizes.

Nice one Allen. How come Kalin is not a member of NWKA. And He is too young to vote.

Allen's kid already has a tackle company......jeez.

I sometimes use this giant trout swimbait.  It's about ten to twelve inches.  It kills big lings cause it looks like a fat blue.  It doesn't work too well when there's a drift because it hangs up a lot. But in still water, big lings can't resist it.  Also anything that look like a good sized octopus works good.
