Big topwater popper. Just try to keep it away from them. I've had them come out of the water to hit the plug they we so wound up about not getting a good look.

I dont think they like anything inparticular. I've had them hit red and white snapper slappers (untipped), live hardtails, shrimp, then the methods listed above. You just have to keep them interested and wait for them to swallow that hook and swim away before you yank back on that rod. Once they spit the hook theyre not coming back.

Anything that you can get them to eat would be the correct answer.

There really is no bait out there that will only catch ling.

I have personally caught Ling on or seen them caught on the following.....

Hardheads
Crabs
Icefish
Shad(pogies)
Shrimp
DOA Shrimp Jig
Snapper Slappers
Squid
Bucktail Jigs
Eels
Eel Lures
Tube Lures (like for Barracuda)
Cut Bait
Green Grub Lures
(insert more here)
and..... the biggest Ling I ever saw, ate a Triggerfish Head that I kicked off the boat, and then swam away.
