I fancy having a go for some early season cod. Firstly are there any restrictions for this species, also how far out do you need to go, would it be possible to get them in a small boat less than 1km from the shore. I fished for cod in the UK and the fishing was usually better when the water was cold, is this the same here or are cod more of a summer fish here. Also what areas should I be looking at ( I'm not looking for specific places) just general areas like are they in the Bay of Fundy. I am finding it very difficult to find any info on ocean fishing, apart from Mackerel and Stripers, there are so many different fish in the sea but nobody seems to fish for them. Must be because the lake and river fishing is so good here lol.
