Well Ec and I don't get to do it as much and this thread is something very special to both of us. Like the Blackfish thread this will be the book on cod fishing. All the equipment and goodies in one basket. It will take time to get it up so please have some patience and wait till we get everything up before questions or posts. We have spent hours on this already and now we will post it all in time. I will post all the pictures first and then comments will be posted by EC under the pictures so please give us some time and I promise it will be worth your wait. Plus we encourage anyone to chime in with thoughts details and comments Thanks Again and let the COD BIBLE begin

Narrow 113h with Newell YTS kit

Ok, this is a standard red plated HIGH SPEED 4/0 113H with a LEE PRO YTS spool, and Newell aluminum bars and base. It also has a 4:1 gear ratio due to it having the newell stainless gear set (unavailable except on ebay), instead of the standard 3.25 gear sets. Accurate also makes a 4 to 1 gear set in stainless, that is much smoother then the Newells. Just remember if you do put the high speed gears in, change out the bronze YOKE and put in the stainless 4/0 smoothie yoke. The bronze yokes will be eaten up in no time if the reel is reguarly fished hard.

This reel is the workhorse of the codfishing fleet. If you have to pick one reel for EVERYDAY codfishing, this it, the narrow 4/0H. In this configuration, it casts much better and weights a few ounces lighter then the standard with 113H.

Captain Tim Towers, from what i hear has now gone back to these reels, replacing both the Newell 400 and 500 series, and the Pro Gears that he used to give out to his customers. That has to tell you something about these reels.

Personally, everyone should have one in their codfish kit. Its that good a reel.

Since this will be the Bible, I hope that the "Cod God" will chime in. Codkiller, you have a direct line to him, don't you?Wink

Looking forward to this one gentlemen!

Penn Narrow 6/0...aka Wahoo Special with Ball Bearings..

This is the next step up in Penn Senators that you can use on the Deep Water Challenge trips that the Viking Starship takes, or for fishing in the deep waters of the GULF of MAINE, aka GOM from this point on.

This is your basic red 6/0 with a Accurate Narrow Kit (aluminum spool and frame). This reel casts like a cannon, and has more pulling power then you are ever going to need on a offshore cod trip. I see people still with the standard size 6/0H reels while codfishing, and say to myself that they could lose about 6ozs by putting on one of these kits. Both Accurate and Tiburon have discontinued them at this time, but Rich at Tiburon will run off a number of these kits, if the demand is big enough.

A nice reel to have, since it doubles as a great jigging tuna reel, but its not a must have reel, unless you like deep dropping with a single speed reel with spectra line.

THANK GOD, i expect to learn alot, since cod is definatly not my fish, they avoid me. well i've only gone 2 times once in january out of captree (totally skunked) i remember spending alot of time clearing the ice off my reel, line and guides.

then tried once again on Capt. Al in feb. same deal freezin, people tossin cookies all around me 8-10 footers(round bottom boat), some guy unfortunatly has a stroke as we get to the fishing grounds, they turn around bringing him back to the dock w/ coastguard boarding the boat to attend to the gentleman. we go to get off capt says where ya goin, we are still goin out OKAY, 2 hrs back out for dogfish & 1 cod for on the boat. (but capt did make up for all lost fishing time...)

Mike and Steve
A few beat up rusty jigs and scratched up reels please. Those jigs and reels look like they have never been used on a party boat. You guys need to stop collecting tackle and get out and kill some cod.Smile
Should be a great thread, maybe you can edit the final product and put it up as a permanant article on Noreast.

I am interested in finding out how to use a 6/0 for codfishing. Seen it done of course, and nothing easier for cranking up that double of 25lbers (cept for that 50 2 speed), but definitely not in the mainstream. Smile

Cod reels.

Hey, does anyone still have one of those super ugly Penn 349 reels? Or, better yet, a "Wahoo Special" conversion thereof?


Remember: I don't take any of this seriously.

Here is a tiburon narrow 6/0, left hand of course. Never much cared for it as a cod reel..Too heavy.
