Capt. Rich reported a very good day on the local cod grounds with a lot of really nice quality cod fish brought aboard today. A very good slug first thing in the morning settled into a steady pick the rest of the day. Early on the fish hit both bait and jigs well but the bite eventually went to just jigs with the butterfly and hammer style jigs doing the best. Pink colored teasers also seemed to be preferred by the cod today. The biggest fish today was a solid 30lbs and it was followed by a few others around 20lbs and quite a few in the teens. Not nearly as many shorts today and the majority of the fish were of the larger market variety and larger. A tremendous amount of mackerel and herring on the grounds holding the fish in the area. Ken and Matt from JB Nianitic crushed the cod today easily putting a couple dozen good size fish up to 20lbs in the boat and were true sportsmen keeping less than the reccomended limit and sharing the wealth with those less fortunate. A good number of other anglers had a half dozen or more fish apiece as well. Good scores were seen all around the boat however the numbers per angler did vary rather dramatically today. That is just the way cod fishing is sometimes. Next cod trip is scheduled for tomorrow morning at 6am on the Lady Frances so please call the office to make a reservation and get in on this great spring run of cod!!
