May I present one of the better tasting denizens of the sea,


The Lingcod!!! Green meat version!



The meat stays green until its cooked. Makes it easy to tell when its done! The little fillet was actually the bait. Lingcod like to latch on to smaller fish and hang on  for the ride. We call these Hangers or Hanger ling! The small fish was a kelp greenling, aka sea trout. Lingcod candy. Sea trout don't have dorsal spines like other rockfish so the ling love to bite into them.

I forgot to snap a finished photo. The green meat turns whiter than white when its done!

Interesting! I've never seen green fish before! What is that big red tail in the tote?

Nice pics Case. Lake Superior Whitefish is about as exotic as it gets for us around here. I've heard you talk about lingcod before..what does it taste like compared to other fish?

All of the rockfish are really mild tasting. Take on the flavors that you put on them.

Oh, are you bringing back memories. We used to catch Rock and Ling cod when I lived on Vancouver Island. They make the best fish and chips in the world. Thanks for posting these pictures.

I LOVE ling cod.  Guess that's not what you would expect an Alberta/Saskatchewan boy to even know about.

Here's a Yellow Eye Rockfish. In Oregon we aren't allowed to keep these anymore so back into the ocean it went. Similar to a diver coming up to fast the rockfish have to decompress in order to survive. So they get attached to a special rig and sent back down slowly. The clamp is pressure sensitive auto releases.
