As much an art as commercial enterprise, salmon trolling represents the archetype of the small-boat Southeast Alaskan fishery. A close cousin to sport fishing for salmon, commercial salmon trolling involves selecting the right lures for the right conditions and finding the fish to entice them with. A lot of the gear is the same between commercial and sport fishing, just scaled up in both size and quantity for commercial fishermen.
Lingcod are one of our favorite whitefish to eat, and also one of our favorites to catch. We typically catch the bulk of our lingcod in May each year during a directed season. During this lingcod season, we use a fishing device called a “dinglebar,” which is basically a big weight that bounces on the bottom.
