Sekiu Lings ?
« on: September 12, 2018, 03:47:31 PM »
I am heading over to Sekiu for the first time ever. I know they have been slaying the coho.
My questions are:
Is there good fishing for lings in MA 4?
If yes, which direction would one head.  Not asking for your secret spot, just wanting to try for some lings while there and what direction to try. Any land marks to reference ?

Thanks in advance  8)

Is it open for Lingcod out there right now?

Just looked, looks like you need to be in Area 4 for Lings. I know nothing about the area, I just wanted to make sure that it was open. Carry on...
I hunt, therefore I am.... I fish, therefore I lie.

7mmfan is correct - not open in marine area 5.  So I guess to answer your question to be legal you would need to run a bit West.  Past the mouth of the Sekiu river puts you in area 4.  I've never fished lings down that far so I'm not much help on location other than where it's legal.

Do you plan on heading out to Tatoosh? Or are you trying to stay close to the border of 4/5 by the sekiu river?

Not against running to Tatoosh, but if knew of a closer spot I'd save the fuel.

Sail rock just East of Neah Bay.  Anywhere in area 4 push up to the edge of the kelp beds.

"""We didnt find any lings, but the salmon fishing was phenomenal and we caught some sea bass"""

For lingcod, may I suggest using the largest diamond jigs that you can find (14 oz.....largest I can find up here), smearing them with Smelly Jelly and then jigging them hard on the rocks below. Keep moving around until you find them. You may lose some jigs if the bottom is very rocky but that's where they will be, and you need to feel the contact with the bottom. My last two trips out (550' of water), I've used a 28 oz. jig, flat on one side, rounded on the other (orange/yellow) that has absolutely slaughtered the lingcod and has also brought 5 halibut to the boat (4 released). That is my largest jig (no longer made/available) that I bought maybe 30 years ago......I will weep mightily when I eventually lose it.
