That is a male guarding the eggs. They get very aggressive in the winter when sitting on eggs.  That is a brute of a male too. A 15 pound male is about the as big as they get. He is not that big but good size. That old guy has been in his fair share of battles look at the chunks missing from his dorsal fin.

We're lucky they only get as big as they do.

Can you imagine a 200-300 pound lingcod?

they would be more dangerous than the GWS itself......i wonder if they were larger sized way back when Meglodon swam the depths?  it seems that everything in the ocean was once larger than today. =  did caveman get gobbled up by sea monsters?

That video is why I want to dive AND why I dont want to dive all in one. Lings are like little pit bulls that never give up, I saw a video in alaska of someone pulling in a huge halibut with a ling chompin away at it.  He wouldn't let go and they pulled both fish into the boat!!  :smt005

I have a friend up in humbolt county that was fishing for lings last summer, and hooked a ~33 inch ling, and had a ~40 inch ling that latched on to the 33 incher mid fight, and did not let go till it was in the boat... yeah they are pretty voracious.

On Saturday, we came across a cool 10# lingcod that seemed pretty friendly.  It would come out as soon as we hit bottom & hang around for as long as we could hold our breath.  Unfortunately my battery died on my headcam just as it decided to swim up and do a staredown with me from 2-3" away.   :smt010

I kept thinking "what a friendly ling, he wants to be friends!"   :smt004

Big Jim came up from a dive... "did you see all those eggs under the ledge!"    :smt009


Faithful guardian, the lingcod kept coming out to challenge us... and we kept sticking around because we thought he wanted to play.   :smt005
