Week Ending August 13, 2017
August 9th – 13th, 2017 Fishing Report
August fishing at it’s finest. The weather has been calm, the sun has been hot, and the fishing has been good. Some trips have been more productive than others, but overall, we have been getting a nice pick of haddock, cusk, pollock and redfish. The dog fish problem from a couple weeks ago seem to have subsided, though we still get a few, it’s much more manageable. The number of big cod have also dwindled as they seek shelter in the cooler deep water before the fall spawning season. As is usually the case in August, the fish spread out, the balls of bait disperse and we all think about how great the spring haddock fishing was. We should expect to see more blue sharks in the coming weeks which can pose another challenge. Bait still rules over jigs. Cool sightings this week include ocean sunfish, dolphins, football size tuna busting the surface, and a leatherback turtle swimming like he just escaped the aquarium. The best part of summer fishing, you never know what you will see next.
