Cod is a common name for a number of other fish species, like the Atlantic cod (Gadus morhua) and the Pacific cod (Gadus macrocephalus). Cod are caught in colder and fairly deep waters, close to rocky areas, wrecks and drop-offs.
Cod can weigh over 50kg and grow over 1,5m long.
The best cod fishing bait is crab, squid, worm, shrimp and dead fish. Cod can also be targeted with artificial lures such as pilkers and soft bait.
