Captain Mike reported a good day on the blackfish grounds. The water temperatures dropped ever so slightly over the past few nights and the fish really started to chew. The first drop of the day was the best. The bite stayed good until around noon and then the wind switched. High hooks left with easy limits.
There will be no cod trip tomorrow with the wind forecast. The weekend is looking very questionable for the cod fishing.
We will be trying to sail for blackfish at 6am on the Lady Frances.

Captain Rich reported a beat down on the sea bass today. We had a full boat limit by noon. Only a few cod in the mix with the savage sea bass bite. SOme nice scup in the mix but they seem to be thinning out some. NO trip tomorrow.
Captain Mike was happy to report a solid start to the blackfish season. We this morning with a very light group of anglers who wanted to make the report instead of reading it. Nearly a full boat limit of fish to 8 pounds. We had plenty of shorts to keep rods bent. This is a great start for how warm the water still is. It is only going to get better. We will be sailing daily at 6am.
Captain Matt reported a decent day on the cod boat. We were worried about the swell after the storm but it did not effect the water.A few dozen cod up to 15 pounds made it in to the cooler today. We also had a decent catch on both the scup and sea bass. We will be sailing tomorrow morning at 7am.
We will be starting our fall blackfish season tomorrow morning at 6am.
We will also have the Cod boat sailing at 7am.
Captain Matt reported an excellent day on the full day trip. We took the long ride today with the nice weather and it paid off. We had an easy full boat limit of sea bass to 6 pound by noon. We found the mother load and it was lock and load. Less cod in the mix due to the abundance of sea bass on the grounds. Biggest cod on the day was 10 pounds. Both bait and jigs worked well. We will have no trip tomorrow and Fridays trip is looking questionable with the current track of the storm.
Just a reminder we do plan on starting our blackfish season on Saturday at 6am!!
