Report location New York > Montauk > THE NOREAST CREW CRUSHES THE COD ABOARD THE CELTIC QUEST WITH CAPT.DESMOND AT THE HELM!!!!!
Fishing method Boat
« Previous Report Next Report »

Pulled out of dock at 8:37 PM Saturday night to start the long steam to the grounds southeast of Block Island.Had some interesting anchoring difficulties but we got set up quickly.As I walked out the door we were greeted with some heavy snow which turned to rain sometime in the middle of the night.The epic night bail job was a slow grind in some wet miserable conditions.Many stuck it out as the smart ones(not me) took a snooze in the cabin.Des and crew moved several times during the night with the last drop being quite productrive.Capt.Paul through heavy chum all night long which aided in putting fish in the boat.



A good amount of Party and charter boats out there with many sitting on the hook and others drifting.Dss decided to get in line and join the drift pary after sun up.We again picked good but no bail job.Around 8:00 AM we had a strategy sesion and we talked of hitting a few wrecks.Captain Paul was now up at the helm as JC and Des talked,I proceeded to catch a two sets of keeper double headers and Des Thoght what to do.Next drift the entire port side rods are bent quickly followed by the starboard side and we were not going anywhere other then back to the front of the drift line.You could here Pablo yelling from all aroud the boat,theres a man that enjoys fishing no matter what he catches.Veteran surf nerd Jaybass even tagged a limit but decided to only keep what he needed.My good buddy Josh (lijrtt) was allowed out and put on a show.



After aboit 2 hrs of sick fishing Des asked how many more drifts we wanted to make.At this point coolers were full and many people had called it quits with sore back and arms.We made one more last drift for good times sake,I think every rod was bent on that last drift,just sick fishing.Sometime around 10:00 AM we pulled out of the fleet and the bow ot the CQ was pointed towards home.I was a little worried when I saw Cris Hunt and fish sitting in the Captains chair,thought we might land in portugal.Captain Des was rite there doing the daily paper work.Went in the cabin to grab a few beers and there must of been 20 guys sleeping.I guess all them cod wore the charter out.Good to see everyone had smiles on there face and another trip was heading into the memory books.A great trip with plenty of good fisherman and a lot of laughs.Most fish today were 22 to 28 inches nothing big but plenty of them.Fresh shucked clam was the ticket but the fish were feeding on small hering and jigs did work also.



Many thanks to the Celtic Quest team Captain Desmond,Paul,Chris,JP and Tommy Thats some experianced azz kiken crew rite there.Also a big thankyou to Bernadette who takes all our phone calls and reservations.I can not forget our fearless leader,my good friend JC30967 who sets up these incredible trips and dosent mind driving the truck on the way home.We cant thank RALPH RODWINDER enough for his generosity of bulding 2 spectacular custom cod rods for the pool prizes.A true gentleman and incredible rod builder to say the least.



Fishing is as good as it gets now and with March here tommorow the end of the Block cod season will be coming soon.Get out now before its to late and give the CELTIC QUEST a shot,they will put you on the meat.They are some of the best in the business!!!!!



OH ALMOST FORGOT,WITH A 16 HOUR DAY AND 20 HRS FOR THE CREW,I THINK WE GOT MY MONEYS WORTH YESTERDAY!










Pablo on!!!!

Rob,
It was fun fishing with you guys yesterday. I was up all night with you guys in the snow/rain as tired as I was because we were there to fish and in cod season sometimes the weather makes men of boys.
Capt Des did a great job of putting us on the fish.
I also have to thank the maker of Advil without it I wouldn't of made the day.


There are 4 seasons to the year and you can fish in all of them.  The season never ends...

Rob, thank you for the great report, my friend up! Always an honor and priveldge to fish with you, and to call you a friend Shades




I need to give a shout out to Glenn (gevans), who posted here. Here is a guy, who is no spring chicken, who fished a roughly 13,14 hr trip on the Viking Star, got off the boat when she pulled and came right over to the CQ and then fished another equally long trip, only taking a break when the boat was moving to a different drop. Glenn, you always amaze me with your dedication, whenever I hear someone claim how party boat fishing is easy,lazy man's fishing, I think to myself " Glenn can show them how wrong they are!" up

Rob great fishing with you & Jay & all the rest of the guys I know & didn't know..Brooklyn Mike great seeing you pal.. That was some insane off the wall fishing that i got to experince. I gotta tell you though i was a little worried when we first started out i was not catching fish but nobody was so i was ok with that then Pablo & filo & maybe 2 other guys started catching fish & i was right next to them I wasn't even getting a sniff & the whole time Mr Pablo keep yelling to me "Nappe keep cracking clams & tossing them in the water" well after a few choice words for Pab's & me still not catching BUT tossing a few clams on each drop of my rod it happened!!!! i caught my 1st COD on the trip it was about 7" long Reallysurprise while pablo had 20 fish caught with 5 keepers in the bucket already & the S.O.B laughing at me i stayed focused and turned in a mighty impressive catch for the day with over 20 keepers & a brand new Ralph Rodwinder masterpiece that i won as i had the 2nd biggest fish of the day... So thanks pablo for busting my chops because you motivated me to kick some azz today Brother....
Seriously Thanks Jay the celtic crew & Ralph what a masterpiece handed in by you guys today...
The irony of the rod is that Seane who beat me out for 1st place by an ounce or 2 actually built my custom rod that i was using for COD this day & works great'i can't wait to use the rod i won from Ralph gona put a nice Avet on it. So there you have it what & great tired day i had


RUM is the answer....
