Gloucester Haddock

Recommended Posts

Fished on the Lisa & Jake out of Gloucester Mass.  Great guys, top notch boat and gear.  If you're going to make the trip, I highly recommend them.  The 6 of us combined to bring home 200+ keeper haddock, and a few cod.  Threw back just as many sub-legal fish, also caught some small pollock and ocean perch.  What a day.

Not to discourage anybody but the new regs have rec anglers at 3 haddock and 9 cod PP. Gonna hurt the charterboat industry big time.

 

It makes no sense to me.

I may be misinformed, but I think the catch regulations are to protect a fishery population that is estimated to be about 5% of what it once was. Whether restrictions on private anglers will significantly help the restoration of a fishery decimated by decades of commercial overfishing is uncertain.

 

Commercial creel regulations and countries that ignore the regulations are inadequate to support a viable fishery by natural reproduction. I wouldn't be surprised to see further reductions and/or restrictions in coming years.

6 of us are going one a 3day 2 night trip.  I thought the size was cod 19 inch 9 per day, haddock 21 inch unlimited, Pollock unlimited and halibut 1 per day over 41 inch, has this changed?
