Captain Frank was happy to get on the water for some early scouting trips. We tried a drops all over the ocean in search of cod. We would catch a few and move on just to check rock piles. We found a good showing of cod on every spot with some being very productive. We also managed a full boat limit of sea bass to 5 pounds. Many throw back cod , seabass and scup to keep rods bent. Things are looking up for the fall fishery!!!
