As near as anyone can tell, cod season in Gulf of Maine waters opens April 16th. It's a little confusing this year.

With the approval of Admendment 16 the gulf of Maine is closed to recreational cod fishing from 11/1 through 4/15.

The two hook limit will also be removed. For recreational fishing the fisherman will be limited to 1 line but the two hook issue limit is gone.

Haddock minimum is reduced from 19" to 18".

Plus for recreational fisherman the possession limit for wolffish will be ZERO.
