Sunday, May 2nd, Fishing Report
Sunday, May 2nd
Well, I’m writing this report while sitting outside the breakwater waiting for the guys to finish filleting. We had ourselves a day today aboard the Lady Sea. One stop shopping, 15 miles from home, in 250 feet of water.
There was noticeably more life out there today, balls of bait and whales all over on the ride out. As soon as we stopped, the fish started coming over the rail, and it lasted for over 2 hours. Bait or jig, it didn’t matter; everything worked. We had a true boat limit in those 2 hours, with everyone catching 15 keepers by 11:30am. The fish were all of good quality and size, very few shorts, with most fish in the 4 to 7 lb range. Very rarely do we see fishing at such a sustained pace for hours on end.
This was definitely one for the books. The pool winner was a 15lb pollock that beat out a couple of large cusk.
