So maybe you don't have them in Maine, or at least at the time that old book was published you didn't.

Possibly, but we have many other species you can catch! Maine is a great fishing State.

How about Ling Cod? With Maineah's fried Haddock and fries or tots thread I got hungry for some fish, and Haddock is not found over here on the west coast, I was had some ling cod last night for fish and chips. We have a short season for Ling, sometimes we will get some Black Cod(sablefish), also a nice fish good oil content, or True Cod. I do love Haddock. But I will stop with the long windeed question and jus ask, Can a guy catch some Cod fish in Maine?

Yes, although they are typically caught by the guys out on the draggers of off Jeffrey's Ledges or George's Banks. I personally have never heard of anyone catching them from shore. I suppose they are out there not too far though.

The first time I took my older nephews out for them, the youngest--whom I didn't invite because I thought him too young and a potential nusiance--lobbied hard to come out with us, so I took him along.

At the dock he said he didn't want to fish, so I told him he'd be in charge of the bait.

On the way to the fishing grounds, I pointed him to the covered bucket and told him to get some bait ready for us.

After he uncovered the bucket and looked at the pile of angry green crabs, their claws snapping, he retreated into the cabin to the furthest recess under the bow, where he sat in shock sucking his thumb.

Long story short, he was fishing by the end of the day and loving it.

Although we had to bait his line for him.
