I want to go Cod fishing in Mass on the Helen H soon.
My question is about technique used in setting the hook while jigging and while using bait.
Do you guys set the hook the same way?
I mean, do you swing hard like Blackfishing?
I've only caught a handful of Cod in my life, what does the bite of a really big Cod feel like?
Do they hit the jig or bait hard?
Stupid questions I know, but I have nobody in my circle of friends that are good at Cod fishing.
Thank you for your time.
