Ling Cod opens April 15/06. So your timing is excellent. Watch your sounder and find the drop off, look for shelfs with sand or gravel. Jigs or spreader bars will work just fine. I fish out of Tahsis and am coming out around that same time period. I have been bringing up the "hockey team" for the past 4 years for the white meat and have done very well each time. VHF ch#6 is the one to be on. You can reach me on my handle "rumrunner". Good luck and tight lines.
