Mon Dec 3 – George’s Bank Christmas Cod/Wrecks
George’s Bank Christmas Cod/Wrecks
Captain Steven Sr. reports that on day one he decided to hit the Wrecks knowing that on Sunday the weather was going to change for the worst. The Wrecks were absolutely on fire, H.B.R, ( you hit bottom and reel) in Cod, Jumbo Sea bass and Pollack. We landed Cod to over 20lbs, Sea Bass to 6.5lbs and Pollack to 15lbs. All in all we had very good fishing for day one.
On day two Captain Steven Sr. headed to Coxes ledge so that we would only be three hours from home instead of having to battle through ten hours of nasty weather. Boy was it rough, we had 30 mile plus an hour winds, heavy rain and 10 ft. seas. Despite the conditions we did pick away at Sea Bass, Cod and Haddock. Captain Steven Sr. was talking to his Dad, Captain Paul Forsberg about his catch of Haddock as well as his son, Capt. Steven Jr’s fantastic report of Haddock landings on Saturday. Captain Paul responded, “The last time that this amount of Haddock was landed and brought to Montauk was during the 1950’s”. The Cod pool winner was Ron Armet of Lindenhurst NY with a 22lb Cod. Kevin Chan of Flushing NY took the Sea Bass pool with a 6.5 lb. beauty. Lastly the edible pool went to Phil Nadwau of Malvern PA with a Pollack weighing over 15 pounds.
Captain Steven Sr. along with mates, Steve H, Brian P. and Jessie F. would like to thank everyone for a great trip and also wish all of our loyal customers a very happy holiday season.
