Capt. Mike relayed word of yet another bluebird January day which brought out a respectable turnout of cod enthusiasts. The cod were somewhat enthusiasitc about the anglers offerings the first couple hours as they chipped away at some nice green fish however things started to slow up so Capt. Mike decided to go in search of something a bit more substantial checking out several different areas finding life everywhere but no big piles. Anyway a day of it was made and in addition to the cod the anglers aboard had some nice size mackerel and quite a few big ocean perch with some pushing the two pound mark. Most anomolous catch of the day went to Eben York who jigged up a fine 10lb black fish that was promptly released. Biggest fish today was around 15lbs and hi hook for the day took home 5 nice green fish. No fishing trips due to the imminent storm for the next two days but check back with us as to Weekend sailings. Cod today were primarily taken on bait simply because that is what 90pct of the anglers chose to use. Still a very good idea to bring an assortment of jigs in the event that the cod deide they want the metal. Hammer, norwegian and butterfly and regular diamond jigs have all been producing cod when they want the iron clam as there have been numerous inquiries of late as to which jigs are working the best but recently it has been more about how the operator is using the product rather than the product itself. Remember sometimes less is more with both fishing bait and jigs. The basics will always produce. Yesterday one angler did very well with a plain metal hammer jig and today another angler did quite well with a rental rod fishing bait with one hook not only getting the pool fish but being hi hook for the day. Well that is all for now, hopefully once we get all this wind and rain out of the way we can get back to more good local codding!
