Capt. Mike reported that today’s cod trip was downright respectable. It wasn’t Tuesday and it certainly wasn’t Wednesday but it struck a nice compromise between the two. It was a slow but steady pick on the cod all day long. No anchor set or drift was shut out. The cod were generally of a market size but there were a fair amount of “gaffers” with several in the low to mid teens and one bigger one that tipped the scales in the low 20’s. Harry from CT had bragging rights today with that fine fish in the low 20’s. Both jigs and bait were effective early on but as the day wore on bait was more effective and a higher hook seemed to be preferred by the cod fish this afternoon. It was not red hot fishing by any means but it was FAR MORE SPREAD OUT for whatever reason than yesterday with the majority of anglers getting a cod or two to take home and a fair number getting three. Hi hook had four keepers. Another interesting aspect of the day was the sheer number of super size ocean perch, some to almost 2lbs that pleased anglers today. I cannot say enough how good to eat these smaller members of the tog family are. A few of the really big ones even fell to the metal!! Anyways we certainly made a day of it and tomorrow being a new day with more great weather forecast and the Lady Frances will be set to sail at 5am with Capt. Mike. The office will be open by 4am for check ins. The weather continues to look great through mid week next week at least and weather permitting we will continue to sail daily at 5am. Kindly call the day before to give us a reservation with name, phone number and number of people expected to attend. Some pics today provided by a local cod fish fanatic.
