tommy cod spend most of their lives in estuaries, running further up river to spawn, spending time in the ocean too, and can even be land loch-ed. we mostly catch them at the beginning of ice season here although there are almost always some around. you get them a lot going for catfish at night here in sturgeon alley. i was thinking of going for them in salt water in the next few nights, since if they are up river in numbers they must be in the harbour area too...according to theory - lol!

these guys were fairly dull colored, some can be very pretty, with purples and reds in complex patterns. the ones we were getting in millidgeville (kennebecasis river just before it joins the st. john river) last year were very colorfull while the ones in five fatham whole (mushquash estuary) are fairly dull colored and patterned, like these guys (one was a bit more colorful than the others and one was as plain as i have ever seen)

it`s where you catch the fish. i have caught hundreds of tommy cod up rivers, ony a couple hand fulls in the open ocean. in quebec the are the prime ice fishing species, all caught in brachish and fresh water.

IMO, if you count it in one, you cant count it in both (fresh and salt water), which i believe you did.

Ouird...depends where they were caught.
Ipop posted tommy cod caught from 2 different locations.
St John river..freshwater ( brackish )..good for a specie point for AOTY Freshwater IMO.
We may add Tommy Cod to "Trophy List" next year..what's a good trophy length, and do
kayak anglers target them ?
The other from Bay of Fundy..saltwater..should be good for a point in Saltwater !
Keep up the awesome work ipop!

it is that way for stripers and eels and a bunch more besides.

for trophy size i would guess at about 11-12",  here those would be a rare catch, i think 14" is my longest ever by an inch. they average here 4-8".  we should probaly discuss this in...discussions! lol!
