Capt. Mike reported a nice rebound today on the local cod scene. We had a really nice pick for several hours in the morning on the anchor and then went up into the real skinny water and chipped a few more on the drift in the afternoon when the wind let go completely. Nothing big today but all fine market cod with sizes into the low teens and the big fish honors of the day going to Peter Tu with a fat green cod of at least 12lbs. Peter and Connie, longtime regulars, and both exceptional rod handlers combined for 16 nice cod today. Eben York was the high hook for the day with an even dozen cod (orl) while Capt. Cory Blount easily limited out as well. A good number of other anglers aboard had four to six nice cod apiece to take home. A handful of macks and a few ocean pout and a couple big perch complimented the great catch of cod. With the exception of a few fish jigged up on the drift in the afternoon the action was all on bait. Once again the best fishing on the anchor was from mid ship to the bow, has to be a tidal and wind direction thing this week. Different wind direction tomorrow so will be interesting to see how that all plays out. A special word goes out to Capt. Gary Dyer and former deckhand Mike Miller who joined us this beautiful winter day for some local codding. The writer can tell you first hand of many great memories of cod fishing along side Capt. Gary in the early days of his fishing career. It was a picturesque day on the water and most hands aboard enjoyed a great Super Bowl Sunday of Winter Codding. Tomorrow looks like another good day for codding and Capt. Mike will be set to sail on the Lady Frances at 5am. Cory will have the office open around or shortly after 4am for check ins and ticket sales. Pics provided by a local cod fish fanatic.
