DEEP SEA FISHING REPORT FOR WEDNESDAY DECEMBER 21ST 2011

Capt. Rich relayed word back that the fishing was once again great today with a full boat limit of nice size sea bass and big porgies. Once again the larger cod kept a rather low profile and word around the fleet according to Capt. Rich is that he was not in singular company in regards to that matter. Quite a few little cod to let go to grow up mixed in with the scup and sea bass. A fat green cod was responsible however for the pool prize today. Next possible trip sets sail Friday at 7am with Capt. Rich aboard the Gail Frances. Kindly check back with us tomorrow afternoon to double check on Friday’s weather.

FISHING REPORT FOR SUNDAY DECEMBER 18TH 2011

First mate Capt. Matt relayed word of just a handful of anglers who braved the wintry chill and even some snow flurries to head out in search of of cod and sea bass on Sunday. The cod kept a rather low profile although a fine fat green one did take the pool. Plenty of hubcap size porgies and nice size sea bass filled the bags and coolers for the anglers aboard with limits on both rather easily attained for the majority of those aboard and everyone going home with some fine eating fillets for some great meals to come. Next possible run is on Wednesday but the weather looks to be qutie active this week so stay tuned to the web site or give us a call later tomorrow afternoon to double check on sailing status. Remember that starting Jan 1st we switch to a daily 5am sailing schedule.

SEA BASS CRUSH TODAY ABOARD THE GAIL FRANCES WITH CAPT. RICH, 12/17/11!!!

Word from Capt. Cory who was out with Capt. Rich today was of a near full boat limit of big sea bass to over 5lbs along with just about a full boat limit of big scup to over 2lbs along with a handsome handful of nice market cod to just under ten pounds and nearly a dozen cocktail size blues and a pile of big ocean perch all put together sure helped to make for one heck of an action packed day of bottom fishing aboard the Gail Frances. Both bait and jigs were responsible for the sea bass and scup today although bait had the edge. Capt. Rich looks forward to more great fishing tomorrow with the Gail Frances set to sail at 7am.
