Captain Mike reported a good day on the cod front. The morning started out slow but the weather was nice so Captain Mike made a move and it paid off. Some bigger fish in the mix with 6 fish over 15 pounds. Todays pool fish was 25 pounds. A good bunch of ling and ocean perch in the mix today. Plenty of shorts to keep anglers busy as well. High hook did go home with 5 keepers. The weather tomorrow is going to keep us at the dock. We are keeping an eye on the weather for sunday. Photos to come soon.
Capt. Mike reported, although not as busy as previous trips, he still had some good solid drifts during the day and boated plenty of codfish. Frances Fleet long time regular Lou P. took high hook top honors of 8 keepers. Pool winner was just over 10 lbs. Plenty of throwback action as well to keep everyone busy. No trip tomorrow, Thursday January 22nd, but as of right now Friday looks like a go. Be sure to give the office a call Thursday to confirm.
Capt Mike reported despite the wind and the rain that came on later in the day, the weather held out for the most part and fishing was very good for the small group of angers that sailed with us on Sunday. Capt. Mike said the ratio of keepers to throwbacks was better than in recent trips. And pool winner weighed in around 18 pounds. A few short Pollock mixed in as well otherwise it was all cod fish. Capt. Mike was thrilled with the tremendous amount of bait (mackerel and herring) he observed on the grounds which the cod fish were chasing all over the column. The cod continue to accept both freshly shucked skimmers clams and jigs from passengers. No trip on Tuesday January 21st but as of right now Wednesday looks like a go. Be sure to call the office and give us your name, phone number and the number of people in your party. Some pictures showcasing angler hi lights provided courtesy Captain Mike.
Anglers from Saturday January 17th, please check your gear. A customer has called and said his and a fellow angler’s rods were mistakenly switched. Although quite similar, he is anxious to get his rod/reel back. Both had Shimano Torium reels but different rods. Again it was from Saturday’s trip and he indicated he was fishing on the port side. Please call our office so we can get you in touch with this angler. Thank you.
Due to the weather there is no trip for tomorrow, Monday January 19th. There was a trip today with a very light crowd for which full fishing report details are forthcoming.
Capt. Frank Blount reported the word from Capt. Mike was of a “solid” day of local cod fishing. A decent number of keepers and a tremendous amount of shorties again kept rods bent and anglers busy at the rails. We ARE sailing tomorrow morning at 5 am and Cory will have the office open shortly after 4 am for ticket/tackle sales.
Captain Cote reported a great day to bend the rod on the local cod trip. Rods were bent for most of the day but the size just wasnt there. Much slower on the keeper then we have been seeing. Some angler reported catching 10-12 shorts in between each keeper. Pool fish was around 10 pounds. Both bait and jigs produced well. We will not be sailing tomorrow due to the weather but we plan on sailing both days this upcoming weekend.
Captain Mike reported another great day the local cod grounds. The weather was good and the fishing was even better. Many people left with limits of cod fish with everyone going home with fish. Bait and jigs both produced with bait having a little bit of an edge. Nothing big today but a few fish around 10 pounds battled for the pool. The short cod were out in force with one angler reported catching over 35 shorts. We will be sailing tomorrow at 5am on the Lady Frances for cod.
The Lady Frances is scheduled to sail tomorrow, Wednesday January 14th at 5:00 a.m. The office will open at 4:00 a.m. for ticket sales.
No trip tomorrow, Tuesday January 13th but as of right now Wednesday the 14th looks like a go. Be sure to give us a call tomorrow to leave us your name and phone number.
