Default Where to head to catch Lingcod in the Puget Sound

I was hoping to get out in on the water and do some Lingcod fishing, but I have been struggling to find good local resources. Any particular areas doing well?

Any rocky structure on slack tide Likely holds lingcod. Fishing heavy current is likely wasting your time.
No one is likely to give up specific lingcod holes.
Catching sand dabs or greenling to use as live bait increase your chances exponentially.
Good luck.

Rocky ground. Keep your bait vertical to reduce hangups. There are plenty of maps to get you started.

This book is dated (1984) but the fishing locations are not, nor is the excellent advice.
Amazon Amazon
. For a more up to date guide, (but not as many maps) try https://johnssportinggoods.com/product/gear/saltwater-fishing-journal-2017/. John Martini has an awesome tackle store in Everett
