The report from the porgy boat according to Capt. Ray was of very good fishing today. Next trip for scup will set sail Sunday morning at 7 am with Capt. Ray aboard the Admiral Frances.
Roger reported nice mixed bag fishing again today on the Gail Frances day cod trip. Staying close to home a light load of anglers chipped away at some market cod. Nothing big with the best taken by Mike from Foster RI with a fish just under ten pounds. The majority of anglers aboard, but not everyone had a cod or in a several cases two cod to take home. Lots more scup today with even some double headers. Generally large and jumbo stuff with most well over a pound and quite a few that went closer to the two pound mark with a few pushing 2.5 lbs. The majority of anglers aboard caught ten to twenty nice scup apiece with a few anglers closing in on 30 each. Not as many good size sea bass today although a couple 4 lb brutes were taken, most were nice keeper size fish. There were a couple of sea bass limits. One sea flounder and a handful of nice size ocean perch plus a bunch of short cod and short sea bass rounded out the catching for the day. A few pics today courtesy of Roger. Next open boat cod trip MAY be on Friday, we will have a better idea on that through the day tomorrow.
A private cod charter yesterday for the Kil Song group from Noreast met with slower than expected fishing, fishing farther offshore than the open boat has been fishing the past two outings. Some small market cod and some scup and sea bass plus a false albacore and several large sea flounder provided a hearty mixed bag but fishing was overall a bit more relaxed than we would have hoped for.
