Local Cod Captain Carl is happy to report a nice day of winter cod fishing! Winds were light and variable all day, seas were calm, temperature was warm (for February) and fishing was decent too. We had a few short cod and some ling come up in the dark, then once the sun came up we saw a couple of steady drifts with some keeper cods and more ling. We picked away for a little bit but then things went slow, so we searched around some different areas and found a shot of cod here and a shot of cod there. In the afternoon the bite picked up quite a bit for a little while and we saw some nicer size cod as well as quite a few pollack. Jigs and bait both produced today and as always, some fishermen…
