Capt. Mike said we are going to give it another day’s rest. The wind has still been blowing quite a bit. He said Thursday looks good right now. But double check during the day on Wednesday.
There will be no day trip for cod tomorrow. Please call tomorrow before 5pm to inquire about Wednesday’s outing.
Capt. Mike reported a very good day of local cod fishing with just about everyone going home with fish today and most anglers bagging three or four nice green market cod apiece with a few anglers doing a bit better with upwards to 7 or 8 nice cod apiece to take home. It was 100pct bait today with NO ONE even trying the metal. Chris Pagliaro from Hartford CT took today’s pool with a fine green cod just under 15lbs, one of six nice fish in his cod collection today. Despite the blustery conditions, the pick of cod was solid and much better than the past two outings. Looks like a scratch for tomorrow but the weather looks downright nice for Tuesday and Wednesday as of this writing. Capt. Mike looks forward to getting back out after the cod ASAP, as the winter run is beginning to take shape. Pics today are provided courtesy of Capt. Mike.
Capt. Mike reported a fair day of local cod fishing. Nice market size fish but not in quite the numbers we had hoped for but far from a shut out with a slow pick all day long. Pool fish was in the low to mid teens and there were a few macks mixed in with the cod. Tomorrow Capt. Mike will be set to sail on the Lady Frances at 5am, pics today provided courtesy of Capt. Mike.
Capt. Mike relayed word of much slower fishing today. Maybe the weather was just too nice!! Plenty of bait and fish showing on the electronics, just not much of a bite today. Nevertheless a few anglers did alright with Misty Mark and Drifter Rich scoring about a half dozen nice green cod apiece. All nice quality market size fish with not many throwbacks and the biggest for the day in the lower teens. Due to the coming storm there will be no trip tomorrow but the weather looks much better for the coming weekend as of this writing. Best results today were with bait by the way.
I just got off the phone with Capt. Mike who reported a very strong day of local cod fishing. Capt. Mike repoted the sounding machine was just “lit up” with life. “Tremendous” stacks of bait and fish both herring and mackerel. The cod fish were underneath them and on the chew as well! The average per angler while varied was generally a half dozen nice fat green market size fish each with at least several limit catches observed. Nothing huge but all nice fish with sizes into the very low teens. Not many throwbacks today as well. While some fish were caught on the iron early in the trip on the drift, the best bet ended up being on the hook with bait on a hook later on in the day. We look forward to more good fishing tomorrow and the weather sounds awesome. Capt. Mike will be ready to set sail on the Lady Frances at 5am. A few pics will be provided courtesy Capt. Mike above today’s post.
Early reports from the Lady Frances are that codfishing has improved dramatically over the last several trips. Capt. Mike said that there were several guys with their limits and most all other anglers had between 4-6 fish a piece. The weather also was dramatically better than what it has been. Tomorrow looks like another great day, so the Lady Frances is expected to sail bright and early at 5:00 a.m.
