It was an epic day on the Endeavor with the K&E Construction crew! These guys know how to throw down, and their fishing skills proved it. 

Lingcod are incredible animals unique to the west coast of North America. According to the Monterey Bay Aquarium, females usually produce between 60,000 and 500,000 eggs. This gelatinous egg mass weighs up to 15 pounds and measures 2.5 feet across. You may have noticed raw lingcod flesh sometimes has a greenish color, but it's harmless. The flesh turns white when cooked. 

Lingcod spawn during the fall months when they migrate closer to shore. The male arrives first to establish a nest on a rocky substrate in strong water currents. Females don't show up for as long as a month later when they choose their male partners to deposit a layer of eggs on their nest site. The male swims along and deposits a layer of sperm afterward. They continue this lasagna-style nesting until the female leaves. Males will guard their nests against predatory fish for up to ten weeks until the eggs hatch, but will surprisingly allow sea urchins, sea stars, and snails to feed on their eggs.
