May 17th & 18th Fishing Reports
Friday and Saturday this week were two polar opposite days.
Friday we had 20 people on the boat, but the conditions were harsh. The tide, wind and sea were very difficult opponents. We marked fish all day, with a couple of anglers catching 10 fish or so a piece. The rest of the boat had a tough day in the wind and rain. All in all, not a good day.
Saturday on the other hand, was the perfect day. We had a full boat of 40 people, and around 3ft of seas on the ride out. As the day went on, the weather got beautiful, and the fishing got spectacular. During the last two stops of the day (totaling over 3 hours of fishing time), we boated around 400 keeper haddock. We also had Pollock and cusk mixed in, with a 10lb Pollock winning the pool.
Just another example of why we call it fishing!
