Wed June 15 Offshore Cod/ Fluke Special
Cod/ Fluke Special
Captain Steve Sr reports a very good trip offshore this past week. We had cod, haddock, halibut, fluke were all caught aboard the Viking Starship! It was as good as it gets on day 1 for cod fishing- we had nice size fish from 5-9lbs. The haddock ran very good as well. We had to work to get the keepers but it paid off for Ron Armet who managed a nice 32lb halibut. All in all it was a very good first day. On day 2, it rained a bit but we went fluke fishing- although it was a slow pick we had a bunch of fluke averaging from 3-6lbs- 10 of which were over 6lbs. Honorable mention goes to the returning Dave Weahly for his double header and finishing with a 9.8lb fluke and John Otto who won the cod pool with a 16lb codfish.
