Local Cod – Viking Star
Captain Carl reports a pretty decent day of cod fishing. Once we started getting a little bit of daylight the cod started biting very good for a couple of awesome drifts. Eventually, that bite died down, so we went looking around and found a couple here and there, but then things really shut down for the end of the trip. All in all it was okay and everyone had cod to take home, some catching a bunch, and some just a few, with everyone averaging 4-5 cod a piece. We are cancelled for tomorrow and Tuesday because of bad weather. We will keep our website updated for the next good weather fishing day. The pool winner was Dennis Dougherty from Island Park, NY with a 14lb cod. We had a bunch of young anglers aboard today including 11 year old Connor Gormley from Center Moriches, NY with 5 keepers and 10 year old Manus Lathare from Westchester, NY with 4 keepers. We also had aboard Gavin and Katie Hitchener, on their first cod trip, from East Port, NY with 6 keepers.
