Captain Mike reported a better day on the cod grounds. 55 degree and 5-10kt winds at the end of February is unheard of. We worked mostly wrecks and rock piles and found good results. We picked away all day and by days end we had a respectable catch The weather for tomorrow looks good before the rain pushes in late. No trip tomorrow and the rest of the week doesnt look good
Captain Mike reported an okay day on the cod grounds. The early bite we tired to capitalize on never happened. We did some bouncing around and found a few fish to work on. We did work an area towards the end of the trip which did have the best results. Still marking lots of bait but the water was on the dirty side. Trying to sail tomorrow morning at 5am by reservation. Call the office before 6pm today.
We will be sailing tomorrow morning. We are going to leave early to hope to get in on the “night” bite. The boat will be sailing at 3am by reservation. the office is open until 5pm today.
Captain Greg reported a very tough day on the grounds. The weather was great but the fish just were not interested. We set up show on huge piles of bait but nothing was home. We bounced around but just could not get something going. Toward the end of the day we found a small handful, but overall very slow. No trip tomorrow and we are keeping an eye on the rest of the week.
The captain and crew are eager to get back on the grounds tomorrow. The weather is great with temps near 50 degrees. Sailing on the Gail Frances at 5am.
Captain Mike reported a tough grind on the grounds today. We steamed out with high hopes with the fresh bait. We set up on the grounds and started cracking shells. We picked a few keepers but that was about it. The wind from the weekends weather really stirred up the water. It was a nice brown color all day long. Once things calm down and the water settles we think it should rebound. NO trip tomorrow due to the heavy south west but we are keeping an eye on the end of the week.
We will be sailing tomorrow morning at 5am. It looks like the only weather window we may have for a little bit. We are fully stocked with fresh clams and ready to go.
No trip tomorrow. The weather looks questionable Thursday- Saturday right now. We will be ready to sail once the weather break with a load of fresh clams
No trip tomorrow but we are hoping to get back out Monday with the moon
