Years ago we used to go cod/pollack fishing out of North Jersey. Then the cod fishery collapsed. In recent years I have seen/heard of the stock coming back, not like the old days but coming back some. I am curious if anyone makes the runs offshore for cod and pollack these days.

A few years ago, maybe 4 or 5, it was good for a stretch of 5 years or so, but the last couple years haven't been great. During that time we did a trip on the Jamaica II from Brielle in December and the Island Current from RI and both were good. One year, I think 2013 or 2014, we caught more cod than sea bass on a couple of spring sea bass trips out of Cape May. The Jamaica and Jamaica II out of Brielle and Gambler out of Pt Pleasant still sail for cod regularly all winter.
