July 1, 2013 – Hal Levenberg stands in front of a nice catch of ling cod and black rockfish caught on jigs in very shallow water off Kodiak Island. Ling Cod season opens July 1 every summer and Kodiak Island has some of the best fishing anywhere. We usually catch these toothy critters in shallow water jigging with bucktails and crippled herring jigs.
The best Alaska fishing lodges will target ling cod the day the season opens on July 1. Kodiak Island Resort is a leader among luxury fishing lodges with their ability to first locate ling cod habitat and then being able to catch them. Anglers like Hal know it pays to shop for Alaska fishing lodges that are experienced in all aspects and techniques to assure the best catches.
