July 30th – July 31st, 2016 Weekend Wrap-Up
Saturday July 30
Today we had a full day charter. The weather was perfect, the ride to the fishing grounds was very comfortable. The catching was a little slower today than it has been. We caught some nice cusk and haddock along with those pesky codfish and dog fish. We made more stops today than we have on any other full day trip this year jumping all over the fishing grounds trying different depths and different types of bottom. Plenty of fish on the screen, not enough coming over the rail. Just one of those days.
Sunday July 31
Today we had enough customers to run an afternoon ½ day trip. The weather forecast was a little suspect, but as it turned out, we had a very light mist at the beginning of the trip and then just overcast with peaks of sun. The air temperature was warm and comfortable. The fishing and catching was very good from start to finish with many fish coming over the rails. We had a good mix of whiting, mud hake, and haddock for keepers. We also had many small haddock and pesky cod that had to be returned to the ocean. We a great group with many kids aboard, many of whom captured their first career fish, which always makes the trip a little more satisfying.
