Capt. Rich reported a very good day with the local cod today despite some sporty conditions. The cod were a bit more aggressive today. A lot of quality fish boated today with Mr. Pak getting the hi hook honors with six fine cod today including a pool fish of near 30lbs and another big cod in the 25lb range with the rest in the teens. Anthony from Manchester CT had three fine cod to nearly 20lbs today and had a really big one break him off! The majority of the cod boated today were over 10lbs. These are the kind of fish we are used to this time of year! Capt. Rich reported much more in the way of the bigger green fish today as well. There were some market size cod, some shorties and there were also quite a few nice size sea bass today with sizes up to 6lbs!! Hi hooks on the sea bass had upwards to at least a half dozen nice sea bass apiece. A few big porgies and some ocean perch and a few blue fish rounded out the day’s catch. Bait was king today and one hook down low and kept on the bottom WAS THE WAY TO GO! Anglers who did their best to keep their baits on the bottom as the boat went up and down with the waves had the most responses from cod fish swimming around the boat. The fish were a bit more spread out around the boat today as well. Capt. Rich was very pleased with what he observed today and looks forward to the next cod trip set to sail at 7am Friday morning.
Capt. Rich reported yesterday’s Fluke trip only found a few handfuls of keeper fluke but anglers had plenty of nice sea bass up to nearly 4lbs and lots of super size scup to 3lbs as well so everyone went home with plenty of fish and it was a great day and still great to see at least a few nice fluke still around. Doc Henessey from CT took the pool with a sea bass of nearly 4lbs. There is no fluke trip tomorrow but we will have a porgy boat at 8am with Capt. Ray aboard the Admiral Frances. Stay tuned as to whether or not we will be trying to put together another Fluke trip for next Tuesday, October 4th.
Capt. Ray reported an okay day of porgy fishing today with the weather conditions affecting the bite a bit. Anglers who persevered at the rail did fairly well. Nothing huge but a lot of nice keepers and a fair amount of nice size sea bass in the mix as well. Capt. Ray reported that there were three keeper fluke today and a few shorties as well. Capt. Ray also looks forward to another day on the water tomorrow with the Admiral Frances set to sail at 8am.
