Laura-Jay Striped-Bass and Cod Report

Posted on August 13th, 2010 by captain

Quick Rundown on the week so far:

Sunday – Cod trip up to Stellwagon.  Alot of shorts and dogfish on the southern cod spots, but after some good intel from a friend, we hit the cod really well.  Good mix of markets and 15 lbers, along with some of haddock and a few pollock.  Long run from home, but well worth it.

Monday – Very good bass fishing close to home.  Largest fish of the day was 35 lbs (on the scale, not a guestimate).  Pretty sure we limited out as well (all the days are blending together here) as we hit the outgoing tide at Barnstable and had alot of fish on the feed.

Tuesday – Good bass fishing again – had a pair of fish that looked like twins, both a hair under 30 lbs.  Few more stripers in the box and a few bluefish to keep things fun.

Wednesday – Made the run up to P-town with a full day trip.  So much for the rumor going around that it had died up there.  Limited out, and I’m not sure what the total was, but it seemed like a ton.  Great group of guys that have been coming for a long time now.  We’ve got a picture on the site here of a little kid with his first big bass – now he’s a Senior in high school and catching more fish than his dad.  Scary Stuff.

Schedule is pretty tight right now, but the afternoon bite has been just as good as the morning.  We’re double booked a bunch next week, but there may be some afternoon slots still open.  Give Betty a call on the home #, or try Don’s cell.

Good luck out there.

Spring Codfishing Dates

Posted on February 27th, 2010 by captain

Cod Season opens on Stellwagon this season April 15.
This season we will running trips out of Green Harbor, in Marshfield Ma April 15- May 7th. We have done this many other seasons, and we find it an easier location for the early part of the season. By the second week of May the Cod are down on the Southern End of the Bank and Peaked Hill, so our home port of Sandwich is closest to the grounds. Limits for this season will be 10 Cod per person, plus Captain and crew for a total of 80 Fish per day (based on a full 6 passengers) – customers are also allowed unlimited Haddock and Pollack as well as the usual mix of cusk, redfish, and wolffish. All custom tackle, bait, rigs, jigs, and filleting are included as always.
Can’t wait, this winter has been way too long!!
