Tomcod Fishing

It's tomcod season! The cod are running up river to spawn, just like the salmon earlier this year. However, tomcod fishing is a little different than salmon fishing. Read below for directions.


Above: First you must take an ax and chop a hole in the ice. Keep a pot nearby to scoop out ice as the hole refreezes.

Below: All you need is a hook with some meat on it, some string, and two sticks. Lower the hook into the water, and use the sticks to adjust the height of the hook above the riverbed.



Above: When you feel a tug, pull your line in.


Above: Remove the tomcod from the hook.

Below: Tomcod are usually eight to twelve inches. Eat raw and frozen solid.
