Cod fishing is an art of following fish migration patterns and bottom types. During your cod fishing charter, a keen eye and a good bottom machine aids to the knowledge of knowing were to look. The bottom machine does not always show fish even when they are ample. Large Cod tend to lie flat on the bottom making them difficult to see. The type of bottom is always displayed, i.e. gravel pebbles or coral covered rocks, and will always look different than a soft sand or mud bottom. Years of experience can distinguish between the types of bottoms to begin the search.
The color and shape of the teaser will intrigue many fishermen. Most are fascinated by trying to figure out this puzzle. There is no set color or shape that consistently works better than the other. Some days different colors seem to work better than others even though it is a fact that to the human eye all colors except chartreuse turn neutral after 33′ of depth. A variety of feathers and rubber are always good to have in your tackle box.
Introduction to Jigging
When the tide is light he down current method is still very effective but not as important as a strong current. When the current is light the straight method drop method works fine as long as the angler keeps the jig consistently 6-12″ off the bottom. This is done by constantly adjusting the line so the lure is in the proper spot. Some anglers are a crackerjack at this method and will always out fish there partners.
