My mistake, Please guide me in the right direction.I just say howI feel about a fish that I loveIn trouble way more than Snapper or redfish. WhenI hear Talk of ling season, I get this way. I hopefully will one day feel the joy that some do for "Cobia Season"! Obviously 2 diffrent fish.

He is right, in my opinion ling are fished a little to heavy, i met a man a couple weeks ago on the peir and he told me that back in the 70's you didn't look for one or two fish, you looked for that wad of hundreds and you could just pick the one you wanted. now on a weekend there may be hundreds of boats 200 feet apart going up en down the beach and the peirs may be filled. I love ling fishing and so does all you other guys but it realy sucks when you go a day or two without even seeing a fish thats when you may relize that there not as abundant as every1 thinks.

nobody back in the day did anything wrong. every person on the pier would have done the exact same thing if there were as many fish. another thing that hasnt helped much are the hundred + thousand dollar tournements that happen every year...and the fact that you can get at least 3.50 a pound if not more per fish...all that stuff didnt happen back in the day

They are getting hammered more than they used to. More people fish now then there was fishing in the 70's. Just in the past few years the ling fishing has gotten a little tougher and some of it has to do with the guys down the coast fishing for them now. From my understanding, down south along the coast not many people fished for ling. Now there are just as many boats out there as here. It also doesn't help at all that these other assholes go out and catch them and hammer them and sell them without a license, illegal. SOme of them around here got caught but its not just the assholes around here that is going on all down the coast. They are in the top 2 of my favorite fish to target and i love it. I just hope it stays the same as it is and doesn't get worse. Isnt ling like dolphin? All dolphin do is migrate, eat, spawn. Another old timer told me ling was pretty much the same way.

Now for last year like Tx said it was a bad year with all the rain, and rivers dumping. Water being real dirty. Hell i know a couple guys you others are speaking of that fish the tourneys that didn't enter one tournament last year. A couple of them only fished a couple times. Yes the tourneys dont help but when we fished the tourney we only targeted the bigger fish and didn't keep any small or medium fish.
