Capt. Rich reported that todays cod fishing took on a much more relaxed pace than the previous day’s fishing. The fish seemed to be very scattered over a large area and not nearly as bunched up as the day before, and chasing down mackerel which means they would be under the boat for a minute and then they were gone. Mackerel being members of the Tuna family are very fast swimmers and mackerel also must never stop swimming or they will die. When cod fish chase mackerel they will swim way up in the water column at times with cod fish today hooked as much as 30-40ft above the bottom!! Anglers did manage to some nice green white bellied cod in the boat with Ken from Durham CT taking the pool with a fine hanger just shy of 30lbs in fact had she been filled out the fish would have been well over 30lbs. Another angler today had a triple header of nice green cod with a total weight of probably close to 25lbs when we went over a pile of fish. A couple cod were caught on bait but the vast majority of the fish boated were taken on jigs/teasers. We also had our first keeper fluke and short fluke of the season on the cod jigs today and also had a smattering of good size mackerel and one big ocean pout. While the bite was off today there was still a good sign of fish in the general area and a slower trip was bound to happen sooner or later. We will be taking reservations til around 6pm this evening for tomorrows outing. The weather looks very nice tomorrow to go out after cod.
