The little whippersnapper was too tiny to tag, but definitely deserves some points for biting a big hook!  This young lingcod was caught during a marine protected area survey at Año Nuevo as part of the California Collaborative Fisheries Research Program.  Lingcod do have a reputation on our surveys for biting off more than they can chew (or swallow).
