“It does not require a majority to prevail, but rather an irate, and tireless minority to set brush fires in people’s minds.” - Samuel Adams


First of all, it is a double (or triple?) Entendre.

The pelagic zone is the part of the open sea or ocean comprising the water column, i.e. all of the sea other than that near the coast or the sea floor. In contrast, the demersal zone comprises the water that is near to (and thus is significantly affected by) the coast or the sea floor.

I’ve always thought of myself as someone who doesn’t just go along to get along. I’m very much an individual. Pelagic fishes tend to be the top predators. They don’t swim (think) in schools. They’re the “big fish in the small pond.” They don’t swim near shore where it’s safe. They take big chances and seek new experiences.

Examples of pelagic fishes are sharks, tuna, swordfish, and sailfish.  Are you a pelagic fish or are you still clinging to the safety of a coral reef or being bashed up against the rocks in the surf? Do you look for new things and new places or do you return to the same places day after day, time after time, because that is all you know and it’s “safe?” Come on in, the water is wonderful.......


Thanks for stopping by!

The Pelagic Zone is Billy Cook’s way of saying “Hello, get to know me!” My only goal here is to introduce you to stuff I’m interested in that may be of interest to you too. I am who I am. If that doesn’t interest you , there’s a back button on the upper left of your screen


Wanna see something cool?

Over the years, I’ve had some great experiences and met some great people. If you want to check them out, then click the Gallery button below and come along for the ride.


I do!

I like a lot of other things too, but fishing is what I mostly like to talk about and share with my friends.  I’m not a guide, and to tell the truth, I still have a lot to learn. But I’m always willing to have you along if you want to come. Give me a call or send me an email and we’ll work something out.

Saco Bay Tackle

Sure, you’ve got Cabala’s right down the road for a lot of gear, but if you need bait, worms, and actionable info, you go to SBT. My truck is covered with their bumper stickers, so I’m doing my part to get the word out.

Kittery Trading Post 

Anyone who has ever come across the Big Green Bridge to Maine has driven right past the KTP.  This is THE source for firearms and other good stuff in Maine. Oh, they do fishing stuff too.


On The Water Magazine

This site has become my new favorite. If you fish the waters of New England, then this is a really great resource for information.  Their videos are pretty good to.
