Q&A: Best Ling Cod Lures for Monterey Bay, CA


Hello! I was wondering if you could suggest some size and color combos for Lingcod and Halibut fishing out of Santa Cruz California in the Monterey Bay? Thanks!


Thanks for reaching out to us. We appreciate your interest very much.

We have some excellent applications for Ling Cod and Halibut Jigging. One of our most popular and productive techniques is to jig the 9″ HDUV Eel tail in black pearl or bubblegum and bottom bounce using an appropriately weighted 10/0 Barbarian Jig Head.

These baits are most productive when bounced in close proximity to the bottom.

Another excellent bait is our 6-inch Sand Dab soft bait. It’s a perfect imitator of sand dabs and can be rigged on the same barbarian jig heads or our HD drop shot rigs.

Here are a few customer photos from the Santa Barbara area:
