Capt. Mike reported a good day of tog fishing for a very enthusiastic turnout of fishers aboard the Lady Frances. Several fish threatening the 10 lb mark battled it out for the pool today and there were a fair amount of limit catches recorded. A few cod and a few sea bass mixed in as well. No tog fishing Sunday and Monday due to gale force winds.

Roger reported a good day with Capt. Rich aboard the Gail Frances. Cod fish numbers continue to slowly increase. Hi hooks had four cod apiece to take home and a number of fishers had three apiece and the majority but not all fishers left with a cod or two to take home. A lot of short cod today as well. A near full boat limit of sea bass today with quite a few quality jumbos in the 3 to 4 lb range. Much better numbers of bigger scup today for a change with a few porgies pushing the 2 lb mark and some fishers getting upwards to 20 nice scup apiece. Lots of large to super size ocean perch, two nice fluke, several sea flounder up to nearly 4 lbs, a few small blue fish and a rather mentionable but not unbearable amount of the unmentionables. Numbers of unmentionables today were greatly but not completely reduced by using jigs or fishing one hook down low near or just above/below the sinker. Big fish of the day was taken on a crippled herring jig and one other fisher stuck it out with a jig all day and boxed three nice keeper cod along with an easy limit of nice sea bass. Certainly a very mixed bag of cellar dwellers today aboard the Gail Frances! No trips Sunday or Monday due to gale force winds. A few pictures today courtesy of Roger.
