Captain Mike reported a slow day on the cod grounds. We were hoping that the new moon would turn the fishing on but it did not help. The report from other boats was a predawn bite. We did have few fish come over the rail but not enough to go around. The dogs were also around which never helps the matter. We will not be sailing tomorrow due to the storm. Please check back for all sailing days and times for any upcoming trip.
Captain Mike will be setting sail at 5am tomorrow morning on the Lady Frances. The office will open at 4am for all ticket and tackle sales. We ask everyone to be checked in by 4:30am
Captain Mike reported another very hard day of local codfishing. Mike was marking fish but could not get them to bite. Fresh bait and heavy chumming didnt help. Few cod and ling came over the rail but nothing to write home about. Mike has a few spots he is hoping to try out next time we sail. Please call to find out our next sailing date because the upcoming weather looks unsettled.
Capt. Mike and crew were out again today after the almighty codfish. Capt Mike made a valiant effort, moving and trying some new spots but it just wasn’t meant to be. A very slow day. The weather this week looks a little blustery and cold, so be sure to call us the day before for the latest update.
Captain Mike reported a struggle today on the cod grounds. Some cod coming up here and there but in the number we have been seeing for most of the winter. Mike tried a few spots and most had a few fish but the bite would be over as fast as it started. Tomorrow is another day and we will be sailing at 5am.
