When it comes to fishing, cod is a top catch for new and experienced fishermen. They are difficult to find, but relatively easy to catch. Their size, generally between 10 and 40 pounds, makes for an impressive trophy, and frying them up once you get home is a tasty reward after a fishing trip.
For the best way to catch cod, Marilyn Jean Fishing provides fishing excursions open to the public along with NYC cod fishing charters for those that want something private. We depart from NYC and provide you, your group, and everyone else on the boat with a thrilling day of cod fishing. You can book online using our scheduling software, or call us if you’d like your own private charter.
Enjoy Cod Fishing with Others or On Your Own Private Cod Fishing Charter
Cod are at their peak around NYC between December and April, but the populations are so massive in our part of the Atlantic that they are still present in places like New Jersey Shore, Rockaway Beach, Jamaica Bay, and other area fishing spots during the summer.
We offer cod fishing boat experiences at different times of the year, including full day and partial day boat launches. You can join other excited novice, intermediate, and advanced fisherman out on the open water as we try to find as much cod, and other local fish, as we can. We also have private cod fishing charters available for those that want a more personalized experience.
Members of your party are welcome to bring their own equipment, or use our rods, reels, hooks, and sinkers, all of which are included in your ticket. We provide the right bait for cod, fish cleaning, and ice buckets. If needed, we are able to give lessons to your group too.
While aboard, you will have access to all of our amenities. A comfortable deck and cabin with temperature control lets you enjoy being at sea in the winter months when cod are most plentiful. Private fishing charters can also include a catering package, or you can bring your own food and drinks.
