Happy Saint Patrick’s Day! Capt. Mike reported an excellent day of cod fishing and the weather was absolutely gorgeous to top it off. Anglers enjoyed plenty of action all day with the boat not having a problem at all reaching it’s limit. This season has definately been one to talk about! The Gail Frances will be sailing tomorrow morning at 3:00 a.m., Friday March 18th. And as far as the weekend, we don’t see a problem at all with sailing both Saturday and Sunday. We do appreciate you giving us a call though the day before, to give us your name and phone number if you plan on fishing with us.
The Gail Frances will set sail Thursday morning at 3:00 a.m. Be sure to give the office a call to leave your name and phone number if you plan on coming. Long range weather update for the upcoming weekend looks promising, so get your buddies together and come on down! Winter codfishing remains strong!! Just as a pre caution though, be sure to call the office the day before to get an updated weather report.
Capt. Mike reported a good day of local cod fishing today. Once again the fish were on the move so they would never stay with you for long but when they were with you the action was fast paced with a great mix of keepers and shorts bending rods all around the boat. Both bait and jigs were working today although bait was the best producer. Most anglers aboard wound up with a nice bag of fillets to take home apiece today although as always, individual scores varied from angler to angler. Nothing huge today with the best in the 8lb range. The weather was spectacular and combined with the good fishing, today made for an awesome day on the water! Due to the incoming storm there will be no cod trip tomorrow. Thursday’s weather will be re-evaluated tomorrow so call the office tomorrow afternoon if interested in fishing on Thursday.
Capt. Mike called in to say they had a very good day of fishing. Our very own Roger was out fishing today, so when he gets in he will write up the full report, so check back after 3:00 p.m. Capt. Mike also wanted everyone to know that because of the unfavorable weather forecast for tomorrow, there will be no fishing trip. But as of right now Thursday and on, looks good.
Capt. Mike reported a fairly decent day of cod fishing. The fish were moving around quite a bit today and conditons required the anchor so we had to move around a bit but anglers put together a nice catch of keepers including a few better fish into the 12 to 14lb range today and anglers also had a pile of shorts to keep busy with at times. When the fish were stacked up right under the boat it was lock and load with double headers all around…and then they move and you would have to start again. Capt. Mike reported stacks ten to fifteen feet thick however so there is still a ton of fish around. Tomorrow sounds like a great day weather wise and we look forward to another good day of local cod fishing aboard the Gail Frances setting sail at 3am.
The weather forecast for tomorrow is calling for high winds and high seas, so we are officially canceling. Sunday’s weather unfortunately does not look any better and maybe even a little worse, so be sure to give the office a call tomorrow afternoon to find out.
They say, winds from the East, fishing is the least. That was pretty much a true statment today. Capt Mike reported a tough day on the water. Lots of action with throwbacks but just not the number of keepers we would have liked. The weather looks wet and windy for the next two days, so we wont be sailing until possibly Saturday. So be sure to give the office a call to get an updated weather report towards the end of the week.
Captain Mike called into say that he had a decent catch of fish around 8 am this morning so he was looking forward to the rest of the day. We will have a full report later when the boat gets in. We will be sailing at 3 am tomorrow morning. Call the office today and make a reservation.
The Lady Frances will set sail tomorrow morning at 3:00 a.m.
Capt. Mike reported a solid day of local cod fishing today. A very good day by any normal standard but a bit more relaxed than previous outings. Still a good amount of nice market cod and plenty of shorts to keep the day rolling right along. Nothing big with the best in the very low teens today.
