Captain Steven Sr reports that we had a good solid 2014 Cod Fest Trip. On Day 1 we hit the offshore cod wrecks, and had a steady pick to start the day, with a mix of good size cod, Medium size hake and pollack, and a load of cunners and we even had monk fish.The afternoon slowed a bit when the wind picked up, but when we were able to stay on the fish we caught them. We also had a wolf fish come over the rail which was released unharmed. On day 2 we fished Coxes Ledge, and had a slow pick through the morning and a good bite in the afternoon, with plenty of keeper cod, pollack and some cunners, especially for those who worked hard at the rail. The pool winner was Mr Andy Donofrio with a 23lb Cod , and the largest edible pool went to Mr Ken Pomeranze with a 15lb hake. Honorable mention goes to Captain JP and his guys from the Osprey in Port Jefferson who over filled their coolers!
