The wind is brutal today and looks like its going to continue through tomorrow as well. So no trip on Friday April 1st. But as of right now Saturday looks like it might give us a window to get out in. The temps start to drop after that which means more wind. So Sunday will most definitely be a no-go as well, unfortunately.
Captain Mike called in this morning around 10:30 to say they were headed home, with a FULL BOAT LIMIT!! Another all out crush job, very similar to last Saturday. Biggest fish weighed in around 15 lbs or so, and everyone’s cooler was full to the brim! This is some of the best fishing we have seen all season. The bite is still an early morning one, so the sailing time will remain at 5:00 a.m till further notice. Although we posted that our April schedule doesn’t include Tuesdays and Thursdays, we may rethink that for the upcoming weeks, because of how good the fishing is. So be sure to check back regularly to see what days we are going. Thursday’s weather includes alot of wind, and Friday is uncertain at this point so be sure to check back as far as the weather goes. As good as the fishing is, now we need to pray for nice weather. Below are a few pictures courtesy of Capt. Mike.
The wind is sure howling today but according to the forecast, its supposed to let up tonight. So tomorrow, Wednesday March 30th, is a go. Be sure to call the office with your reservation before 5:00 p.m. today.
And just to remind everyone, although in our schedule Spring Cod says sailing time is 7:00 a.m., we are continuing to sail at 5:00 a.m. AGAIN, 5:00 A.M. SAILING TIME. The bite has been an early one, so we want to make sure we get out there when they are starting to bite. And also note that we are only sailing on Mon., Wed., Fri., Sat. & Sun, weather permitting.
Captain Mike reported a slow day on the cod grounds. The weather was less then ideal but anglers who stuck it out at the rail went home with some fish. We were marking lots of fish but they just had lock jaw. High hook had 3 keepers. We plan on sailing Wednesday at 5am on the Gail Frances. Please call the office to make a reservation.
DUE TO THE EARLY MORNING BITE WE ARE GOING TO KEEP OUT SAILING TIME AT 5AM FOR THE TIME BEING. WE WERE SCHEDULED TO SWITCH TO 7AM ON MONDAY BUT WE ARE GOING TO HOLD OFF.
Captain Mike called in with an early report and saying that fishing is down right savage. Nearly everyone went home with a limit of fine market cod fish. It was some of the best fishing we have had all winter. Double headers were the norm. We had boated 350 keeper cod by 930 in the morning. Pool fish was around 14 pounds. We will not be sailing tomorrow but plan to sail Monday at 5am. Please call the office after 3pm tomorrow to make a reservation.
Capt and crew reported a very productive day on the water. A rather small group of anglers enjoyed a busy day on the cod grounds. A few limits around the boat and many pretty darn close to a limit. Unfortunately tomorrow’s weather is kicking up a bit, so no trip. But as of right now Saturday looks like a go. Be sure to call the office on Friday to make your reservation. And again, just a reminder there is no trip on Easter Sunday.

The Gail Frances is scheduled to sail tomorrow Thursday March 24th at 5:00 a.m. The office will open at 4:00 a.m. for ticket sales. See you then!
Just a reminder to everyone, this will be our last week for 5:00 a.m. sailing. Beginning Monday March 28th, the COD boat will begin sailing at 7:00 a.m. 7:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Monday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday, weather permitting. (We will not be sailing on Easter Sunday.)
The storm didn’t produce as much snow as they predicted but we are still getting quite a bit of wind from it. No trip tomorrow, Wednesday March 23rd. But as of right now Thursday looks fishable. Give the office a call on Wednesday to make a reservation.
Captain Mike was happy to report fantastic fishing on the Gail Frances. A
very light ground of anglers were treated to some of the best fishing of the winter. The boat was back nearly 3 hours early with a full limit of market cod to 12 pounds. After the limit was reached we played catch and release and when anglers had enough we headed for the barn.The upcoming weather is very iffy so please call the office and check on all up coming trips.
