We roll kinda gnarly around here, eh?
I eat my share of these critters so I can’t get weak-kneed but up close and still dripping with life the biggest of fish make you question your relationship with the animal kingdom. Philosophy, well, will have to wait for another day — today’s end of the road for this Ling Cod was the beginning for one Crescent City angler. Landed off Point St. George beach this fish weighed in at 43 pounds. While a good ways off the state record of 56 pounds (also caught in Crescent City waters) it was a personal best for this local.
