Lingslayer is an exclusive at Hook, Line & Shooter
LINGSLAYERwas developed by Capt. David Bacon aboard his charter boat, WaveWalker. Pacific Coast Sportfishing Magazine ranked it as the #1 lingcod lure. Custom twin tails of various colors add magic.
EFFECTIVE TECHNIQUES: Drop the Lingslayer to the rocks below and lift it up 1 to 2 feet. Jig it up and down twice, lower the rod tip and wait 3 seconds, jig it again twice and repeat the process until a raging "lingasaur" tries to yank you right off the boat!
