Montauk cod fishing is known throughout the US for prime time cod fishing. The 2009 Montauk cod season had exploded and many salty fishermen are claiming it to be the biggest in the last 30 years. Cod is prized for being one of the tastiest fish around. Increase your satisfaction in devouring this tasty fish with the knowledge that you caught it yourself. Let Susie E Charters be your partner in your Montauk cod fishing adventure.
King of the North Atlantic WatersCodfish has been one of the most abundant fish in the North Atlantic for centuries. Its light flaky texture and unique flavor led to their being the fish of choice in many “fish ‘n’ chips” recipes. America just loves the taste of deep-fried cod. Over-fishing would have nearly wiped out the species had it not been for the enforcement of strict fishing regulations. Now, the cod once again reigns as the king of North Atlantic waters.
Montauk Cod Fishing Peak Season
The Montauk cod fishing season begins in December, reaches its peak in the middle of February and lasts till April. Sometimes, these fish are so abundant that many can still be caught in midsummer. But the best time to go cod fishing is late winter to early spring. The average Montauk cod fish weighs anywhere between 10 to 40 pounds, with an occasional heavyweight tipping the scales at over 40 pounds. The best methods for catching cod are bottom fishing with fresh skimmer clams or jigging. These fish swim to depths of 90 to 180 feet in the waters south of Montauk Point to east of Block Island.
