A Cure for Cabin Fever - Go Cod Fishing!
Do the winter doldrums have you down? Is your boat pulled for the season and your outboard motor winterized? For many anglers the winter means boat shows, fishing seminars, fishing flea markets, repairing tackle and getting ready for the spring. But why take a break from your passion? Some of the best fishing opportunities exist right now! Cod are being caught off New Jersey and party boats are your ticket to getting there.
Depending on the water temperature, cod are found off New Jersey until late March/early April. The size limit is 21 inches and there is no possession limit in state waters! Federal regulation have a 22 inch size limit and bag limit of 10 fish. Cod are solid muscle and a 25-pounder can bend your rod in half. Any rod and reel combo fitted with braided line for black sea bass and tautog is a good choice.
