With the snowstorm out of the way, fishing should resume this week as seas decline and temperatures moderate. Not only should boats be able to get out for bottom fishing and mackerel, but shore anglers interested in herring should be able to catch them on Sabicki rigs at the inlets.
January 23, 2016 1-23-16 Saturday Due to the N. E. storm we are not fishing and also we are closing our fishing season until the coming spring. We have some work projects we need to do on the boat. Overall we had a good black fishing season.
1-23-15 Very nice out there today,flat calm and warm. .Unlike yesterday we had a nice group of great people today show up to fish. unfortunately the fish were not in the mood to chew. .Actually I take that back,,the eels and dogfish were in the mood,,They kept everyone busy today but the Togs were tough to come by. Some guys caught some,Mr. O and Mr. P were dialed in and caught some nice fish,they had around 3-4 each I believe,,but most had one or none. .Not good at all,for most anyway. Some Codfish showed up again but most were small,maybe one keepers,few ling. Overall a tough bite for most,,but a really nice day on the water,,Tomorrow we are canceled,no fishing,,Sunday is questionable but I will make that decision tomorrow.
