Captain Cole reported a very nice day in late December on the grounds. Its amazing what 24 hours makes this time of the year. 7ft seas to flat as a pond in 24 hours. We had a great group of anglers who wanted to get out and get some fish for the freezer. We took the long ride and it was only OK. We had to pick through the pin sea bass to make a day out of it. We did seem more cod life around with the cooler temperatures. We did mark stacks of fish but they seemed to have lockjaw before the storm or maybe there were waiting for Christmas dinner. We will be tied to the dock till after Christmas and keeping an eye on the weather for the following week. Long range forecast does have some fishable days before the end of the year.
