Local Cod
Capt Carl reports an overall decent day of fishing today. We had warm weather and calm seas and a boat load of anxious anglers. Our first drop saw loads of ling coming up all around the boat, with just a few cod and pollack. Then things turned for the worse with dogs attacking us everywhere, until the last drop which made the day! We had solid Cod coming up all around the boat with lots of double headers. The savage bite only lasted about 15 minutes though, and things got quiet again, so we made some drifts and picked a few more Cod before the day was done. The cod were nothing big, with shorts in the mix, but everyone got a couple keepers out of it so we ended up ok for the day. 8 year old Chris Viggiano ended up with nine fish for the day between his Cods and Lings. Go Chris!

Wojciech Szypuska from Lindenhurst, NY took the pool with a 11.2 pound cod and Jimmy Valentino from Bayridge Brooklyn took second with a 9.4 pound cod.
