Was fishing with my wife on a 1/2 day charter boat on a cold winter morning and hooked ling cod in about 200' of water. Ended up being the biggest catch of the day, so I collected the "jackpot" for the trip.

      The season is open from April 1-Dec 31 and the limit is only one but I'm not sure why. However, the limit went to 2 per person on June 1.

      Why is the daily limit only one?

      Graham, I agree it is a weird looking fish but it's delicious and highly sought after with a daily catch limit of only one.
