Weekend, August 18th-21st, 2016
Our weekend was once again full of trips, both charters and open boat trips. The weather has been fantastic for all trips with plenty of sunshine and smooth sailing. The fishing has been very good all year, and this weekend was no exception. We had 2 full day trips, 2 three quarter day trips and an open boat half day trip.
The full day trips are our most productive trips in terms of keeper fish. Haddock is the most prevalent fish with 2 short fish for every keeper (unless your name is Mark, then it’s more like 10 shorts to every keeper). Now able to keep a small amount of cod fish, we average about 10 cod per full day trip that are 24 inches or larger. The pollock and cusk seem to be hanging around in our fishing areas as well. Most people on a full day leave the boat with a variety of fish.
The ¾ day trips are always busy. The landing of legal fish on these trips have become more difficult with the addition of the dreaded dog fish. We are also seeing a number of small haddock on these trips. Usually, 5 shorts for every keeper. The good thing is that more cusk, red fish, and pollock have also moved in and action is non-stop.
The ½ day trips have been very consistent all year. This weekend’s ½ day saw many cod and haddock hit the deck, but most were undersize, but we did mix in a few keepers. The ½ day grounds are also covered with dog fish which limits our ability to capture desirable fish. There is still plenty of fun to be had on these trips.
Wild life also seen on the ocean over the weekend included seals, dolphins, a school of Bluefin tuna, a minke whale, an ocean sunfish, a couple basking shark, and big blue sharks. adventure in
