We are talking about jigging a lot around world in recent years after Mr Mogi introduced Japanese style jigging in 1986/87. Not many fishermen living in Gulf of Mexico know about cod jigging, but cod jigging has been around for hundreds years. Still, there is no place in the world 30 - 40 fishermen jig together as cod party boats in New England. We think Japanese guys invented assist hooks, but cod fishermen in New England have been using assist hooks at least 50 years. I arranged a cod jigging charter with 27 -30 fishermen on the 95' Walsh's on Tuesday and I am going to give full report when I come back from the trip. It is common we fish in freezing weather and in rolling seas, but cod fishermen are really diehard fishermen.
