Capt. Ted reported a great day of fishing aboard the Gail Frances for the very light load of anglers who came down to join us this chilly day after turkey day. A really nice showing of nice plump green market cod with big fish honors today going to Trevor Michaelski who took the pool with a fine green fish in the low teens. That nice fish was one of three cod that Trevor boxed today and the fella who was fishing with him also had three nice keepers. Hi hook boxed six nice cod today and a couple of other fellas boxed four apiece. Sounds like for the most part the cod were spread out around the boat fairly well. Lots of nice size sea bass again with sizes to nearly 5 lbs, in fact longtime regular Jerry from Cantebury CT had three around the 5 lb mark himself!! Some red hake, a bunch of big ocean perch and a few large sea flounders rounded out the desirable catch for the day. Weather sounds chilly but tranquil tomorrow and Capt. Rich will be ready to set sail on the Gail Frances at 6 am.
Capt. Mike reported slow black fishing today. Hi hook did box four nice keeper tog however. A couple cod mixed in. Some short tog. We try again tomorrow and Capt. Mike will be ready to set sail at 6 am aboard the Lady Frances.
Due to the weather, yet again, there will be no trips tomorrow Wednesday November 26th.
We also want to take this opportunity to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving.
We do plan, as of right now, to sail both boats on Friday. The office will not be open on Thanksgiving Day but we will have our answering machine confirming our sailing schedule.
Due to the weather there will be no Blackfish tomorrow, Tuesday November 25th. As of right now, it looks like Friday will be the next sail-able day. But be sure to check back.
Capt. Mike was pleasantly surprised with the tog fishing today aboard the Lady Frances. A light load of anglers found surprisingly good fishing on every anchor set today. There were at least a few angler limits with the biggest fish around 7 lbs. A fair amount of short black fish and a few keeper and short sea bass mixed in as well. Despite the terrific amount of wind all week the water was surprisingly clean. Capt. Mike looks forward to setting sail tomorrow morning at 6 am aboard the Lady Frances for tog.
Capt. Rich will be ready to set sail tomorrow morning at 6 am aboard the Gail Frances for cod/sea bass and what ever other cellar dwellers decide to chew.
Tomorrow Friday November 21st there will be one boat, Lady Frances for Tautog fishing, leaving the dock at 6:00 a.m. The office will be open at 5:00 a.m.
Saturday, the winds drop out and both the Cod and the Tautog boat are scheduled to sail.
There will be no Tautog trip tomorrow Thursday November 20th. Please check back for Friday’s trips.
