Best Techniques

With cod fish, you can keep it very simple.  You will be fishing on the bottom with live bait or jigs and you will either vertically jig, still fish or drift for them.


Drifting is popular when you have some wind or a little current.  This will help you cover a little more water and present your baits to more fish.


Jigging is a very popular way to catch cod fish.  A variety of jigs will work or just jig with live or natural baits.

Still Fishing

When you find a school of cod fish, still fishing may be the easiest way to catch them.  Position the boat over the fish, drop your baits down and wait for the bite.
