Ling, also known as red hake live around ocean rocks, wrecks and reefs. They generally prefer cool waters in depths ranging from 100 to 250 ft. Ling bite day and night and we often have outstanding catches.


Fishing techniques are the same as sea bass and porgies and all three species are sometimes found together on the same wreck.
