Description: The haddock or offshore hake is a marine fish distributed on both sides of the North Atlantic. Haddock is a popular food fish, widely fished commercially.This member of the cod family prefers deep, cool water and gravel or smooth rock substrates. Haddock migrate haddock.jpgseasonally. In coastal New England they are most abundant during summer months in the shallower waters of the Gulf of Maine. Few haddock exceed 24 inches or weigh more than 3 to 5 pounds.
Haddock can occasionally be caught in New Hampshire from spring to fall in deep water areas. A medium-action 8-foot boat rod is effective for haddock fishing. Unlike cod, haddock have very soft mouths that gently tap at a baited hook. These are felt as light bumps to the angler, thus, require a sensitive rod. Lures are ineffective in catching haddock. Fresh clams, shrimp and squid are the best baits.

   Haddock attack! Haddock attack!
This fish was caught on one of the last stops. Getting the bait down to the bottom was tricky here due to the strong tide. Everybody's lines were drifting and tangles were common. Still, if you could manage to get the bait down there were plenty of fish to catch.
