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.

February 23

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.

2/20

Captain Mike sailed this morning with a good crowd of anglers that were suffering from cabin fever. The weather was nicer then expected with light winds all day. The fishing was slower then expected. Not the number of keepers or shorts we have been seeing. High hook went home with 5 keepers. Some ling and a pollack or 2 rounded out the catch. We will not be sailing tomorrow but the weekend looks good and we plan to sail Saturday and Sunday at 5am.

2/17

Captain Mike reported a Okay day of local codfishing. A very light crowd braved the cold temps for some winter kings. The fish were not as spread out as we would have liked but thats fishing. High hook went home with 9 keepers and everyone left with fish. The dogfish were an issue but the cod were mixed in and just had to fish through them. The shorts were hungry as well with most anglers catching 15-20. We will not be sailing tomorrow but we are watching the weather for wed and thur. Please call the office to make a reservation.

2/12

What a difference a day makes. Captain Mike reported a slower day on the cod grounds. The morning started off promising but then fizzled out after that. A hand full of cod and some ling made it over the rail but not in the number we saw yesterday. The shorts seemed to be even hiding from the fresh clams. Pool fish was around 10 pounds. We will not be sailing tomorrow and friday does not look good either. Please call the office to inquire about future trips.

2/11

Captain Mike reported a good day of local codfishing. A light group of anglers brazed some cold temperatures but hot fishing. High hook had a limit of green cod with many other anglers with in 2-3 of a limit. The shorts were out in force with some anglers catching over 35 fish.  The morning had the best action of fish with cod and baseball bat ling coming over the rail. The afternoon was just a pick here and there.Nothing huge for the pool but a 10 pound green went home with top honors. Both jigs and bait worked well. We will be sailing tomorrow morning at 5am on the Gail Frances.
