Captain Mike reported a okay day of fishing on the cod grounds. We are very lucky to have a cod bite in April and seems that it will keep going till the start of fluke. Speaking of fluke we had 6 fluke today that would have been keepers if it was 24 hours later. 2 dozen keeper cod and about 3 dozen shorts came over the rail. The quality of fish were much nicer then they have been with a few fish in the upper teens. Tomorrow’s weather looks a little wet but we are taking reservations until 5pm tonight. IF we do not have the number we will wait to try again Monday.

Wednesday Apr 27th

Captain Mike reported a slower day on the cod grounds. The morning started off strong with some good drifts but by 11am it was all done. A few dozen keepers and about 40 shorts were caught. Pool fish was around 8 pounds. We are trying to sail Friday 4/29 at 5am for cod on the Gail. Please call the office to make a reservation.


We are trying to sail tomorrow morning at 5am. Please call the office before 5pm today to make a reservation. The cod bite is still going on and the biggest fish last week was nearly 30lbs.

Sunday Apr 24th

Captain Mike reported a slower day on the cod grounds. The body of fish that we worked on yesterday just was not on the chew. We found fish here and there but not the body we were hoping for. These fish seems to be a new batch with white bellies and we hope the bite lasts. As we stated earlier this week the fishing has been a roller coaster ride. We hope next trip will be on the up swing.

Saturday Apr 23rd

Captain Mike reported a good chip of bigger fish today on the Gail Frances. The wet weather seemed to keep some people home but those who pushed through the morning showers were rewarded. High hook had 8 keepers with the pool fish being nearly 30 pounds. More quality fish are starting to show up with a handful of fish in the teens. Bait has been the way to go as of late. Tomorrow is another day and we plan to sail at 5am for cod.


Friday April 22nd.

Captain Mike reported a good chip of fish all day on the local cod trip. These past few weeks have been a roller coaster ride on how fishing has been. To was on the climb and we hope it stays this way. A light group of anglers were treated to around 70 keeper cod to 12 pounds. Quite a few shorts kept rods bending all day. A hand full of pollock were also in the mix. We will be sailing tomorrow morning at 5am on the Gail. Pictures courtesy of long time regular Ginny.



Friday April 22nd

The Gail Frances is out today and has called in to say its a beautiful day on the water. You couldn’t ask for better weather! Hopefully the fish cooperate and make it a perfect day all around. It looks like its going to hold right through the weekend and early next week. So give us a call to make a reservation. Cod fishing will continue for at least a couple more weeks, and possibly longer depending on the fishing. Fluke season opens on the 1st of May, but as in past years, we usually wait a week or so to start. No sign of squid in the area, but we will update as soon as we get some reports in.

April 20th

Captain Mike reported a slower day on the cod grounds. Fishing didnt start off as savage as it did on Monday. A few dozen keepers made it over the rail. More keepers then shorts so there was some action but not what we would hope for. There were signs of life all over the place but no real solid pick. Friday is another day and we plan to sail at 5am. Please call the office to make a reservation.
