Bait fishing from boats

The use of bait has often proved to be effective during cod fishing from boats, and there is a wide range of baits to choose from. Both live bait such as ragworms and dead bait such as mackerel and shrimps are used as bait in saltwater. Some knowledge about this type of cod fishing will increase your opportunities to achieve some great catches.

About Bait Fishing
Bait fishing offers excellent opportunities, but also a few challenges. Which bait to use will be an important choice that should be influenced by several surrounding factors. There are many types of bait that have proven suitable for cod fishing. When selecting bait you have to, among other things, take into account what's available at the present time of year. You must also decide whether to buy bait or find it yourselves. Some types of bait will be easily found, while other types will often require you to put down a lot of work. The simplest way is of course to buy bait from a tackle shop. The quality will, however, often be questionable when buying live bait. The vast majority will be able to provide their own bait, something that is recommended. For many anglers, this is also an important part of the experience.

Choosing bait 
Cod fishing is not an exact science, there is no right or wrong and everyone does things a little differently. Most anglers have their favorite bait and argue that this is best suited for cod fishing. When selecting bait, you should listen to the many well-meaning advices with a bit skepticism. Instead of using other people's favorites, you should determine your own. Try to determine the fish's natural food supplier in the area where you are going fishing. If you engage in cod fishing in an area where cod are chasing herring or small coalfish, this will obviously be the bait you should use. More on Sea fishing baits.

Fishing Spots
Locating suitable areas will always be important. In the article cod fishing spots, you will find information about this challenge. Bait fishing you can engage in from an anchored boat, as well as from a boat that is drifting. The most common alternative will in most areas be bait fishing from an anchored boat, but also when drifting bait has proven very successful.

There are many methods and opinions available when you are rigging your equipment. However, strictly speaking you don`t need to spend much time doing this. A simple solution works very well for most fishermen. Let the fanatics spend their time setting up their gear, while the rest of us enjoy the actual fishing. Attach a sinker at the end of your tippet. The weight must be adjusted in relation to depth and current conditions. Then attach one or two leaders above the sinker using a 3-way swivel. At the end of the leader you attach a hook that is adapted to the size of fish you are chasing. The distance between the sinker and leader, as well as the length of the tippet should be determined by bottom conditions. Rough bottom conditions meaning that longer distance is needed.

When all your equipment is good to go and the boat is anchored at a suitable position, it's time to start fishing. Cod fishing is known as a typical bottom fishing, so the sinker should lowered down to the seabed. Patience is important during this type of cod fishing, and you will often have to wait a while before the fish bites. Especially if you use bait that submits a lot of scent, you should show great patience. As the scent spreads in the water it will attract cod towards your bait. Take note that cod can smell bait at a distance of several hundred meters.

Bait Fishing 
Cod Fishing from a boat that is drifting means that slightly different requirements are set on bait fishing. You should still be adapting your sinker to the conditions and you should still fish along the bottom. The actual fishing you should however, vary more. Change between fishing with no movement and using long, smooth jigging motions. During this type for the cod fishing, it is advisable to use bait that sits firmly attached to the hook. A strong scent is not as important when cod fishing from a drifting boat. This is partly because the boat will be moving away from the “scent track”. 

Bait fishing is both exciting, as well as effecitve, meaning it will often provide you with some great catches. Do you lack the patience for such fishing, or maybe you are unsure of the methods? Then a good alternative is to attach bait on a traditional jig. This has often proved to be a successful method and also it is an easy way of bait fishing for cod. You simply attach chunks of bait on the hook below the jig body. Preferably you should use bait that sits firmly on the hook. Shrimp and mackerel are ideally suited. The last possibility is to replace the suspension, if any, that are used. Replace the artificial bait you are using with hooks intended for bait.

Jigging for cod

Jigging is an easy way of cod fishing, which nevertheless has proven highly effective. This is a method that is suitable for most people, as well as in most areas. The main benefit you get from using boats is freedom of movement. The opportunities to seek out good fishing spots will usually be a lot better than during shore angling, something you should take advantage of. Feel free to read more about choosing cod fishing spots.

Cod fishing from boats is often done by letting the boat drift freely. This means that the weather and tides will control its direction and speed. Placing the boat properly in relation to which way it is moving will be essential. Let's say that the tide is moving the boat toward the north. The boat should then be positioned on the south side of the actual fishing spot. By doing so, the boat will be brought across the fishing ground and thus allowing you some efficient cod fishing. Once you've drifted past this spot, you should move the boat back to where you started.

If the fish don`t bite, you should choose a new starting point. If you drifted across the middle of the fishing ground in the first the run, try a bit further out toward the edges the next few drives. The purpose of jigging is finding fish, meaning that the entire ground should be fished efficiently, if necessary.

If you lack local knowledge or if you are looking to find some new fishing spots, it can often be a good idea start at a random location. Choose a location that looks to be suitable, based on the draft and if available a depth sounder. Then it is really just to get your cod fishing started. Let the boat drift freely while hoping for the best.

The opportunities for good catches are often smaller at this form of cod fishing, but the opportunities to find new fishing spots will in many ways makes up for this. When you catch fish, you should mark the location on your draft, this for future reference and use. If conditions are very calm, this form of cod fishing may be difficult. If the boat does not move, you will not be able to effectively fish new areas.

How fast the boat is drifting will be an important factor during Cod jigging. The fishing equipment and especially the jig/pirk, must be adapted to these conditions. If there is a strong tidal current you will need to use heavier jigs in order to fish effectively. Areas that are located in shallower water will often be preferable under conditions that provide a lot of drifting. Cod fishing in really deep water will often require that boat is moving relatively slowly.

This type of cod fishing is quite easy. The jig, also known as pirk, is lowered to the bottom and then worked up and down in a fashion known as jigging. If you are jigging during strong tidal currents, you may want to take a few breaks from the jigging motions. The current will then cause the jig and the suspension to move and thereby fish effectively. The use of suspension is recommended during cod fishing, with the possible exception of the pursuit of really big fishes. Attach 2-4 suspension with approximately a foot between them. 

Be aware that cod fishing mostly take place close to or at the bottom. Cod is a typical bottom fish and it is only when it hunts large shoals of prey fish (usually herring or small coalfish) that it moves into higher water layers.

Cod fishing from an anchored boat, jigging may also be very effective. Many of the same premises will apply for such cod fishing, but you will be able to select jiggs more freely. As long as the boat is stationary, you will not need such heavy jigs in order to fish effectively along the bottom. If you are engaging in cod fishing from an anchored boat, active jigging will be important.

Jigging is an easy and commonly used method. You can engage in this sport fishing in depths ranging from twenty up to several hundred feet. Especially at smaller depths close to shore, this is a type of cod fishing that is suitable for the entire family. Often you will find that other species are caught during Jigging.

The Best time to go Cod Fishing from Boat

Cod fishing from boats, you can practically engage in at any given time. In most areas you will be able to fish all year round, as well as around the clock. However, there are some periods of time that are particularly suitable for cod fishing.

The best period for cod fishing is from early October until April throughout. However, you can experience great catches even during the rest of the year. Many fishermen complain about small catches during the summer, something that is often caused by the fact that cod moves into other areas. This species prefers cool water, so when the temperature reaches its peak in the summer, it will seek deeper water. Cod fishing further from the shore will therefore offer the best opportunities during the summer. Feel free to read more about cod fishing spots.

Summer fishing 
Also during the summer you could catch cod in shallow water close by the coast. Areas, in which the water temperature stays below 20 degrees Celsius, would then be preferable. I would definitely recommend summer fishing for cod. Even if you don`t get the biggest catches, a beautiful summer day will provide some great experiences. Summer fishing in a small boat along the coast often means some idyllic and great outdoor experiences. More about summer fishing

Time of Day
All of hours are suitable for cod fishing from boats. The exception is cod fishing in shallow water. If you seek areas where the water is no deeper than 40-50 feet, bright sunlight could complicate fishing. Especially in areas containing clear water, night fishing will then be the best option.

Tides will affect cod fishing in several different ways. Local conditions vary widely, and these will determine whether it is best to fish at high tide or at low tide. The movements created by the tides will affect cod's food supply, and if you are cod fishing inshore you will often find the best fishing on the rising tide. Tidal water will then lead food towards the shore and the cod will follow.

During cod fishing further from the shore, it will generally be preferable to avoid spring tide. When engaging in jigging, it is common to allow the boat to drift freely. Wind conditions and the tidal water will then determine the boats movements. Periods of strong tidal currents should be avoided during jigging, mainly because the boat then will move too fast for you to fish effectively at the bottom.
Go Cod Fishing
Local conditions will always have a decisive impact on what time of year, as well as on what time of day cod fishing will produce the best catches. You should always take this into consideration when you are planning a fishing trip.

My recommendation is nevertheless that you try cod fishing whenever you feel like it. Even in areas containing shallow and clear water, it will be possible to catch cod during bright and warm summer days. Although you can`t expect the biggest catches, often the joy by the fish you catch will be especially great. It will always be satisfying to catch fish during difficult conditions.

Cod fishing from Boats - Fishing Spots

Cod Fishing from boats are many fishermen's favorite, and it is often in this manner the largest fishes are caught. One of the major challenges is locating the fish, something that also applies when you are using a boat. Here are some tips that should enable you to find some great cod fishing spots.

In all sea and coastal areas where cod is present, you will be able to engage in cod fishing almost everywhere. Cod is present at many different depths, and you will find it both close to shore as well as far out to sea. Still some areas stand out as especially well suited. To locate such grounds, a depth sonar will be of great assistance, especially if you lack local knowledge.

  • Large underwater reefs that are located in deep water will often prove to be excellent cod fishing spots. At such spots, a lot of the cod's natural prey will be gathered and therefore cod will normally be more than willing to bite. The same goes for areas where the seabed contains steep slopes/hillsides. At such places you can experience some fantastic catches especially at the point where the seabed flattens out.
  • Wreck fishing is a well-known concept and especially in deeper water, wrecks will provide excellent opportunities for some great cathces. At such fishing spots cod will find lots of food while it at seeks protection in the wreck. Smaller underwater reefs will likewise provide good cod fishing spots.
  • Well suited fishing spots can also be found in areas that contains rough ground. In such areas there will be lots of food and small prey fish, meaning that several species of fish congregate here. In areas close to shore, you will be able to experience good catches even in places where the seabed is even. In order to experience this, you should seek fishing spots that contains kelp. Cod will reside in such areas to hunt crabs, a favorite meal.
  • When you are looking for cod fishing spots, you should keep in mind that this is a greedy fish. All areas, in which cod will find food, would therefore a preferable choice. As an example, it will often be located in and below large shoals of small coalfish or herring.
  • Don`t be afraid to try tour luck in shallow water. In areas that provide good food supply, you will find excellent opportunities at depths from 20 to 50feet. Many anglers have experienced some incredible great catches in shallow water, especially during the winter and spring.
  • You will almost invariably find cod in the vicinity of wrecks, rocky reefs, steep subsea hillsides, and in areas containing rough ground. Even lightly broken ground amongst an otherwise clean seabed will be enough to keep cod in this area. When you are going cod fishing, you should attempt to locate such locations.

Cod fishing from the Shore - Casting

Casting will always be an important part of cod fishing from the shore. If you can`t cast your bait or lure into the area where cod are located, it will of course be difficult to catch fish. What requirements are set on casting abilities is primarily determined be whether you are using lures or bait, as well as of how far out at sea cod is present.

Bait fishing for cod will often take place at sandy beaches as well as at other areas with shallow water. At such fishing spots the fish will often be located a bit from the shore, meaning that you must be able to perform long distance casting. Large  rods are usually necessary, and it requires a lot of training to achieve sufficiently long casting. Information on how to choose cod fishing rods.
Seeking out areas where the water is deep close to shore, will often prove to be a good alternative for cod fishing, especially for inexperienced anglers. By fishing from a pier, sticking out from the shoreline, long distance casting will not be that important.
Often, spin fishing will prove to be the best alternative for novice fishermen, and many experienced anglers also prefer this method. Shorter rods, providing fast action (elasticity) is preferable for this type of cod fishing. Long distance casting is an advantage even when spin fishing, but for beginners it`s easier to achieve this with the use of lures than it is with the use of live bait.
During cod fishing from piers and similar fishing spots, you will often find that the fish are biting just a few meters away from you. The opportunities for great catches are therefore excellent, even for those who can`t manage the longest casts.

Fly fishing is a demanding and challenging way of cod fishing. Good casting technique is of the outmost importance if you are going to try this type of shore fishing.

Regardless what type of cod fishing you prefer, the opportunities to catch fish will always be present. Try to locate fishing spots that are suitable for your casting skills. Then you will have the best opportunities for good catches and thereby you will get the best possible experiences during cod fishing.


Best Time - Cod Fishing from Shore

In most areas there will actually be good opportunities for cod fishing throughout the year. Some fishermen may claim that they only catch cod at certain times of the year, this is incorrect. Often such opinions are caused by lack of knowledge on cod fishing. But although you can get good catches throughout the year, you will usually experience the best cod fishing from late September to April, throughout.

Tides will often affect the conditions for cod fishing, and is thus a factor that should be taken into account. Local conditions are extremely crucial, and it is therefore difficult to give any general advice. In some areas there are huge differences between high tide and low tide, while in other areas there are only minimal differences. In general, the days before and after spring tides will provide excellent opportunities for cod fishing from the shore.

The tide can also affect your access to the fishing spots. In some areas, low tide will prove an advantage, because you then can move further out from the shore. This will provide opportunities to reach fish that is present further out to sea. Elsewhere, high tide will be an advantage because cod are staying close by the shore. It will be adviseble to always check tide conditions at your fishing spots and also to seek information from (other) local anglers. Remember that even weak tidal flows could affect your cod fishing. This because such a flow often will affect the pray that cod are feeding on.

Basically all hours are suitable for cod fishing from the shore, but there are some exceptions. If you are fishing in areas with shallow and clear water, it will often be best to go fishing between the time of sunset and sunrise. Sport fishing, sunshine and clear shallow water don`t mix well.

Cod much prefers the cold water, so when the water temperature reaches its peak during the summer, it will move into deeper water. At night, however, cod moves back into shallower water hunting for food. Therefore "the dark hours" will often provide the best opportunities when you are trying for cod at this time of year. More about summer fishing.

Deep crevices, seaweeds/kelp, steep subsea hillsides, as well as a rocky seabed will provide suitable conditions for cod fishing.

Unfortunately, many fishermen will experience that they can`t catch cod, although they are fishing in suitable areas. This is usually due to casting at the wrong fishing spots. Many fishermen choose to fish in places where the bottom conditions are smooth and easy to handle, often out of fear of losing fishing equipment that could jam itself. This is a completely wrong approach to cod fishing. Cod is a bottom fish, and if you are looking for this species you must be willing to risk the loss of some fishing equipment.
