Have you ever caught a lingcod? They can reach up to 5-feet long and weigh 130 pounds.
The lingcod Michael York catches in this video isn’t that big. However, it’s a good-sized fish to be catching from a kayak using a light jigging rod.
York, a fishing guide from Alaska, was kayak fishing by himself on the Gulf of Alaska when he tied into the fish.
The fight looks fairly calm in the video, until York tries to haul the massive fish onto the kayak.
Then, the fish goes nuts. Water sprays everywhere, and it looks like York might get dumped.
Fortunately, he gets a handle on the lingcod in order to show it to the camera.
