Captain Mike reported an Okay day on the blackfish grounds. We sailed this morning hoping for some real bottom on the 9th fish. We did have some luck and some zero but ended the day with an Ok catch over all. High hook did have 5 keepers.
Captain Rich reported that the scup were back on the grounds in force. We went back to the scene of the crime from yesterday and found haystacks waiting for us. Some nice cod to 12 pounds and a few haddock were mixed in. We could not get away from the scup all day. We will be sailing tomorrow morning at 6am on the Lady. Please remember we will be sailing daily at 6am weather permitting. Always call the day before to make sure everything is a go.
Captain Matt reported a decent day on the Blackfish boat. We had a light crowd who really wanted to get in on some bottom of the 9th blackfishing. We didnt know what to expect with taking the week off and the water being 44 degrees. We found fish every where we tried. The morning had the best action with a decent showing of blackfish and some cod close to home. Biggest blackfish of the day was 10lbs and the biggest cod was a solid 20. We will be sailing tomorrow morning at 6am.
Captain Greg reported a good day on the cod grounds. We did not have a good showing of haddock but many more cod then we have had in weeks. We sailed with a light crowd with the cold weather. High hook had 5 cods to 12 pounds. Some good sized seabass and monster scup in the mix today. We will be sailing tomorrow morning at 6am.
We will be trying to sail both boats tomorrow at 6am. Lady Frances will be tog… Gail Cod
There will be no trips tomorrow. Saturday will be the next day.
Captain Mike reported a slower day on the cod grounds. The winds picked up much earlier then forecasted and shut the bite right down. We sptioll had a mixed bag of cod, haddock, ling, scup, seabass and ling. Its really amazing when you get a bite you never know what it could be.
Captain Mike reported a better day on the cod grounds. We were able to drift all day with the perfect condtions. We sailing this morning with a very solid crew of anglers who didnt mind a little cold. We had a much better showing of the haddock then the last 2 days. They wind earlier in the week seemed to spread the fish out but they are starting to pile up again. A good mixed bag of scup, sea bass, ling, cod, haddock and even a weak fish came over the rails. We are scheduled to sail tomorrow at 6am on the Lady Frances.
We are trying to sail both boats this weekend. One for cod and one for blackfish. The blackfishing is by reservation only. We would hate to see peoplee drive down for nothing.
Captain Mike reported a slower day on the grounds. We did alot of looking around but could not turn up the massive pile of haddock from last week. We still had a mixed bag of cod, haddock, scup, ling and cunners. We sailed with a very light crowd who really wanted to get out to the grounds. We will be sailing one boat tomorrow for cod on the Lady Frances.
Captain Mike reported a rather sport day on the cod grounds. We had to anchor all day and could not do all the searching we were hoping for. We still manged a good mixed bag day with cod, scup, sea bass , haddock and ling. We will have a trip tomorrow morning at 6am on the Lady Frances. Wednesday and Thursdays weather looks amazing right now.
Due to overwhelming demand we will be starting our daily cod trips 2 weeks earlier. Effective immediately we will be sailing daily at 6am for codfish and sea bass. We will have another week of blackfish but with reduced days. We will have Wed, Fri- Sunday. IT is always best to call the day before to check the weather. The forecast right now is nice weather all week.
There will be no trips tomorrow Sunday December 2nd.
Captain Rich reported another banner day on the full day cod boat. Might as well call it a haddock boat right now. This is something that is unheard of. We had bent rods all day long. Much scup in the mix today as well. High hooks had 10 haddock with just as many dropped on the way up. Everyone is leaving with nice full coolers and bags. Next trip will be on Monday.
Captain Mike reported a very good day on the blackfish grounds. The morning was on the slower side and we had thought of the season being over very early this year. Captain Mike pulled a rabbit out of his hat in the afternoon and found the motherload. Full boat limit of fine whites. Biggest fish on the day was around 9 pounds. We will be changing up our blackfish schedule as started above and the next day will be on Wednesday.
