Blackfish and Cod reports 4-6 and 4-7-18

First few areas were quiet Saturday exept for some dogfish this morning. There was a nice size ground swell left over from yesterday’s wind that diminished as the day went on. Capt.Tony did find some Blackfish life later in the day. Most fish were short but there was a good amount of bites all on the clams. Pool fish was an 8lb Tog.  Sunday the Tog wouldn’t take the clams except for a few shorts.  We did manage a couple nice Codfish on sunday.  We didn’t sail Monday or Tuesday.  We will try again  Wednesday at 7am, and the weather looks really nice through the weekend.

We will have crabs available for bait  on all upcoming trips.

We are Blackfishing on the 7am morning trips.  The Blackfish have been biting a little better lately last week fishing was slow. We missed a few trips due to the strong winds earlier this week.  As usual with Blackfishing the more experienced anglers catch more fish.  We are Fishing for Striped Bass with live eels for bait on the 7pm night trips Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights.  There were still some Stripers around last weekend.
