Set out for a pretty straightforward mixed bag trip today and it turned into something far more special.  Our Southern New England waters, once rich with Mackerel, Pollock and Giant Tuna are mere memories of the past...and have not had a strong showing truly since the late 80's...in fact, the last time I caught double headers of big Pollock was the spring of 1985.  We used to tow umbrella rigs directly under the SE Light on Block and catch as many as your arms could tolerate (old timers remember these days).  Sadly, that fishery died out many years ago and its almost unheard of to catch even a stray Pollock in these waters today....you have to go up north and fish deep.  Decided to have a look at an old wreck today and the fish were waiting.  Double headers of Pollock all morning and many of the bigger doubles broke off taking jigs and teasers with them back to the bottom.  It was something neither I or Fish Counter Bob has seen in over 30 years....epic Pollack fishing in Southern New England Waters.  Lots of fat fish stuffed with sand-eels...and I can only hope this big body of "Boston Bluefish" hangs around for a few more weeks...finished-up the day with 30+ Pollock, 20+ Market Cod, a handful of Seabass and one lowly winter flounder....the "endangered" dogs were present late morning / early afternoon and made there presence known when we moved to the backside of the inshore grounds...overall, a memorable and epic day out on the water and no doubt shaping up to be a fantastic summer season for Cod and Pollock!!!  Catch-em up!!!
