The codfish landings off the coast of Mass. is to say the least very encouraging. Talked to Mike Leary "SEABAT" as he's known/ One of the best and more knowledgable netters in the area. The gillnetters have been getting their 800lbs a day in 2 nets and the draggers have been basically hitting bottom and hauling right back up with their limit. No driving in circles for hours the last 4 weeks. So basically hitting the bottom and hauling back getting their 800 along with their yellowtail flounderlimit. Before you all panic theirs not alot of boats left with days at sea and the cod have now mostly moved into the conservation zone were they can't be touched. These fish are mostly 24 to 28 inch fish from that 2003 class. They say this body of codfish is 12 miles by 6 miles and has not been seen in this cocentration in many many years. So this is very encouraging for the future.
