World Fishing Network: New state rules take effect on May 1, 2012, reducing the minimum length and creel limits for recreational anglers taking Atlantic cod in New Hampshire waters. The measure makes New Hampshire’s rules compatible with new Federal regulations.
The new rules, as of May 1, are as follows:
- The minimum size of cod that can be taken by recreational anglers is 19” (previously 24”)
- The minimum length of fillets that can be possessed is 12” (previously 14”)
- The daily limit is 9 cod (previously 10)
