How to fillet cod

Published by under Fish and fishing

Filleting cod is not easy, but it gets easier when you have done it a couple of times. On the video below I show how I do it. The video is in Norwegian, but I guess the film tells how it is done regardless of the language.

Fishing cod in fish trap

Published by under Fish and fishing

This short film shows a traditional way of catching cod in coastal waters in Norway. This type of fish trap is only allowed in the cold months (October – April). I am not a professional fisherman and am only allowed to use ten of these traps. This winter I have only used 3-4 traps simply because that is enough. The fish traps have two chambers which the cod is led into. Between the chambers there is a net (8 meters long)  which leads the cod (and other species) into the cambers.

Below you can see some pictures of cod caugth in such fish traps this winter. It is a cold hobby, and the traps can stay in the sea for 4-7 days before you empty them. By using 4 fish traps there is at least one nice cod to bring home.
