Ling season opened July 1st and I left the dock running an overnight charter. After a successful all night fishing trip I returned to the dock dropped off my clients and launched the Cowabunga. I ran back out about 50 miles to where I spotted some Lings in June. After shooting a couple large black rockfish I spotted him at the end of my breath hold, I swam to the surface and began my breath up. I dropped down on him swam up and hit him perfect. He never had a chance.
