The lingcod or ling cod, also known as the buffalo cod or cultus cod, is a fish of the greenling family Hexagrammidae.
Lingcod are found along the Pacific Northwest from Oregon to Alaska. Divers can usually observe juveniles in the shallower eel grass bed while adults prefer rocky bottom areas. Their unique and fierce appearance makes them on of my favorite bottom fish to catch. It’s a firm white meat good for fish and chips, grilled or just baked with lemon, butter, pepper and dill weed.
