Hi all, I've been coming up to nip for a number of years now and I'm wanting to try and target ling specifically. My question is how? I've only ever caught one mid day by fluke, I foul hooked it in the side jigging a Williams half and half. So what's the technique what jig or lure is best etc. Thanks in advance and as always tight lines

The ones I have caught are always right on the bottom just sitting there....
Both were caught on minnow..
Hut operators have told me not to chum the bottom as it will bring in the ling... So I guess chum the bottom with some dead minnows...

From what I understand, you will have better luck in the evening, that’s when we have caught them, and we were using minows about 6”-12” off the bottom. Haven’t caught that many but I hope to this year as they are tasty.

We've only caught 2 in our years going up but both came off of a glow buckshot spoon tipped with a minnow. From what I've seen the keys are night fishing and keeping on bottom and glow lures are a must. Would like to hear what others have had luck with because they are super fun to catch and taste delicious

Chum the bottom. They bite at night, so start fishing when the sun is setting. Glow in the dark jig or lure tipped with minnow - bang it on the bottom. Dont lift the bait more than one feet above bottom. My favourite is a glow in the dark little cleo.

Caught a few burbot/ ling last winter. Always throughout the night and sitting close to or on bottom. They are good fights when you hook one

I put a bad boy or Meg’s on bottom with a salty. 2’ up is a hook with a live minnow. Dead stick on a m/h rod with spring bobber. Drop to bottom and reel TIL the spring just starts to bend. If it raises he’s grabbed bottom. It bends he’s grabbed top. Works for me any ways. Good luck.
