I've started this thread as a form of running report regarding cod fishing off of Long Island. Conditions seem to be changing, and during the past few weeks many of us who have cod fished have had varying degrees of success doing so.

I think it would be helpful if we can make reference to the dates of our trips, the boats we've been on, the general locations, the depths, the water temperatures, and the types of bait encountered. Some information about the quality of fishing on the boats themselves may also be helpful.

Perhaps this will help us figure out our best options for what appears to be a revival of cod fishing off of Long Island.

Wed 3/3
After a slow start the fish made a nice comeback towards the end of the day.
Well guys looks like the Cod may have returned again. This is quoted from the Seaotter fishing reports section:


"Over 35 keeper cod came over the rails with John McIntyre nailing the pool with a 12 pounder. Lillian Kelly was out on her maiden cod voyage and brought home 2 nice keepers. Joe was high hook with 5 keepers. A good pick at ling as well with at least 100 hitting the decks." (www.seaotterfishing.com)

Grady, I was out on the Sea Otter V yesterday along with Billy262 and other Noreasters, two of whom were fishing cod for the first time and had a good day. I believe we were on Cartwright/CIA in about 120- 150 feet of water. Water temperature was around 38 degrees. The bite was slow at first with hardly anything coming up. We were both drifting and anchoriing with no real results. Later in the day we moved to a new spot, double anchored, and started producing ling and smaller cod. I believe the pool winner was a 12 pound cod. Roughly thirty anglers on board, which gave all of us a chance to spread out. Most were using bait (skimmers) but I stayed with a jig - (Solvkroken 13 ounce) and treble hooks and managed a few cod and ling. The weather was great and the seas calm. The water clarity was very good.

On other threads I have mentioned that one of the things I consider to be important about a party boat is a level of comfort. I have found the Sea Otter V, with about thirty passengers on board, to be quite comfortable, with ample cabin and rail space. Moreover, Capt. Joel Lizza is a personable guy who knows how to mix it up with his patrons. His mates Vinnie, Squirt and Scott are top-notch. These are some of the things that I find important in a good party boat.

The fish are there, it's just a matter of finding them. I think the schools are moving around quickly on open bottom, feeding on tinker mackerel.

Guys,
Not to hijack the thread, but isn't this type of thing what the reports section is for? Even if you disagree with that I think its in the wrong section.

MakoMike, with no disrespect, there are alot of other posts that belong either to different forums or in the report section and some of them are from Moderators.

I wish we had boards like Cod Board, Tuna Board, Fluke Board, Shark Board, Blackfish Board, Flounder Board, Porgy Board, Dogfish Board, Skate Board, Sea Robbin Board, etc. Just joking.

MakoMike, the reports section is very good for an isolated report on an isolated trip. However, it's difficult to trace patterns in the reports section without going to multiple reports. I thought it might be a good idea to be able to go to a thread where we could see patterns develop. I guess if this turns out not to be a good idea, the thread will die. On the other hand, if this thread serves a purpose, it may become what Kilsong suggests - a form of "mini-cod board."

Dave, this site does not have enough bandwidth for a "Kilsong Board." Smile

There have been some good reports coming in about the Capt. Mark, a six pack out of Montauk. I believe they caught about 100 cod on Monday, March 1, 2004, but have not heard any first-hand reports. Does anyone have any better information?

Dick,
Why don't you just call Mark Morose (aka Capt. Mark), I don't have his number handy but its in the phone book.
