Haddock

Article imageHaddock is a member of the cod family and reminds a bit of the cod, but has bigger eyes and a darker lateral line with a characteristic dark spot between the breast fin and the lateral line. The maximum weight is around 10 kg. The haddock lives on gravel-, clay- and sandy bottoms on deeps between 20-200 metres. It feeds on crabs, mussels, shells and small fish. The haddock bites on the most kind of lures. Fishing with natural bait is normally an effective method. A paternoster rig with shrimps or small pieces of fish works perfect.
