First cod jigging trip this season

Fishermen in the South are not familiar with cod jigging in the North.
Cod jigging is probably the origin of jigging dated back several hundred years. Cod jigging is very popular in New England year round and there are very few places in the world that 20- 50 fishermen jig together on a boat.
Here is my cod jigging report on the Frances Fleet out of Pt Judith, RI on 01-07.


Even it was not a slaughter, I enjoyed cod fishing on the Frances with fine other fishermen in very relaxed atmosphere in fine weather.
Cod were there, but they didn't cooperate except in early in the morning. The main body is yet to come as most cod caught were in dark color.
As I posted before, I observed that Solvkroken Stainless 9 oz worked better than other jigs in the morning. I was somewhat surprised not many fishermen sued diamond jigs which are traditional hot jigs around Block Island.
I didn't do well in early in the morning when bites were pretty hot as I tried to test several new jigs. I even used $35 Labo SL jig. 8*
However, I decided to stay with Labo SL jig as it should attract cod because of its viking jig style design. Indeed, I saw it worked.
Fortunately, I didn't lose the jig.
I did try squidding technique, but I didn't get any hit. Most hit came when I bounced bottom with jigs slowly.
As we had light wind and current, even 7 - 8 oz could hold bottom.
There are decent amount of mackerel near the bottom.
Cod are coming, but it wiil be very crowded this season as we don't have other alternatives thanks closure of seabass.
caught on expensive Labo LC jig

good action early in the morning.

I enjoyed mackerel fishing briefly.

even bergal hit jigs. we had a nice 7- 8 lbs blackfish on a jig, but it was released due to closure of blackfish.

We go up to north to catch cod now, but we used to have great cod fishing off NJ/NY in winter years ago before cod didn't migrate to south anymore. Most cod boats were packed with fishermen even they fished in freezing weather. In 5 -10 minutes guides were frozen and we had to soak the rods in the water to defreeze guides from time to time.
It seems those days are gone forever.
