Is part of the main diet for many Northwest Coastal Nations. The Lingcod resides in deep water living alongside the other deep sea dwelling creatures.
As a commercial salmon and halibut fishermen, I was frequently exposed to the long line fishery as well as the delicious food resource. Long lining creates the greatest opportunity when fishing for large lingcods, and this's where the inspiration to create this painting was born. Myself and the captain had caught a lingcod over 4 ft long! It's gaping mouth was so large it could fit over the captains head without touching! I had never seen a lingcod this large in all my life and instantly I had the inspiration to paint this magnificent beast, although I have heard of tales of the lingcod growing much bigger, but are very rare these days.
