Local Cod
Captain Carl reports another good solid day of winter cod fishing! We had a big crowd of anglers out today and everyone caught cod and had a good time! There was no bite in the dark, but as soon as the sun rose a bit the cod started chewing! Every drift saw cod coming over the rail with some better than others. Fresh bait worked best today, with just a few taken on jigs. Plenty of quality gaffers today too! With the big crowd onboard, a whopping amount of cod spread around the boat! Kristoffer Barch from Seaford, NY took the pool with a 27.1 pound slob cod! Corey Pallasino of Merrick, NY took second with a 25.9 pounder! Notable mentions go to 18 yr old Owen Carr who had 6 big cod, and Walter Lesliaswski, who took his 4th trip with us cod fishing this year, had 7 cod to 18 lbs.
We are sailing tomorrow and everyday weather permitting! Get them while they are biting! Call at the office 631-668-5700 or check the website for the most recent schedule updates!
