Capt. Mike was elated to report of some excellent togging today on the Lady Frances. There were quite a few limit catches with the biggest fish around 9lbs. Experienced anglers by far did the best today. Capt. Mike reported picking tog at varying water depths and at just about every spot. There were was also a respectable number of nice size sea bass and a few big porgies. One short cod and one short fluke returned to the abyss and that my completes this very good tog report for today. Capt. Mike strongly encouraged by the good fishing today will set sail again tomorrow morning on the Lady Frances at 6am for tog and sea bass.
Capt. Rich reported an okay day on the local cod grounds today. Anglers did manage to chip away at some nice green cod and a respectable amount of sea bass but the bite, while better than expected, was not quite what we had become accustomed to over the past few weeks. It must be stated that things could certainly have been much worse. The water was somewhat dirty from the staggering amount of wind over the past week and a half may have had something to do with the slower bite. Biggest cod today was in the mid teens. Troy, out on a busmans holiday, was by far our cod super star for the day boxing four nice fish to nearly 15lbs and Troy also had several nice sea bass to at least four pounds to go along with his gadids. Roger feels the fishing is likely to improve by leaps and bounds over the next day or two and the majority of anglers aboard did leave with enough fresh fish for a good meal or two anyway. A very few big scup and a half dozen blue fish up to 12lbs and a few ocean perch rounded out the days catch. Capt. Rich looks forward to the beautiful weather forecasted tomorrow and better fishing with the Gail Frances set to sail at 7am.
Capt. Chris and first mate Nicky reported Larry Fredrickson charter on the Admiral Frances had an assortment of black fish up to six pounds. Still some choice dates available for black fish charters so if interested in further booking details kindly call the office and speak to Tammy or Roger.
