The best time of year for larger catches is during the months of (April until October Summer season) when the fish congregate on the deep-water wrecks seeking a place of refuge. In the latter part of the year (winter season) the fish move inshore and can be caught at anchor using baits, far easier than fishing at anchor in the summer

The Tackle:
Tackle setups vary due to different methods of fishing. Fishing on the wrecks in the summer months, cod can be taken on artificial lures like red-gills, sidewinders, jelly worms, jelly-baits of various kinds using a similar setup to Pollock fishing. A special rig set-up for jigging which is a rig with a shorter rig line 4-5 foot to the lure is a great way to pick cod from the bottom or close to the wreck. They will also fall to bait intended for Ling and Conger when the 50 lbs. Class gear is used.
