Alki Reef is another great place in the central Puget Sound for lingcod and bottom fishing. I’ve seen lingcod come out of this hole that were bigger than the max keeper size. Again you have to be careful when drifting the structure or you will get hung up. The last time I fished Alki Reef I caught a very large black rockfish. Of course I could not keep it, but it was great to see that those black rock fish are starting to show up in the Puget Sound after all these years of rockfish being shut down.

Also, be sure to properly release bottom fish with a salt water descending device.
