We had one of better days today tried few different areas and covered lots of ground since we haven t beem out in couple of weeks, most of them were no good, but one spot we hit was loaded. Our Cod charter from Point Pleasant NJ even had 5 or 6 double headers of cod and some pollock, couple hours of none stop bites and it stuffed our fish box everyone on board caught at least a dozen fish and went home with big bag of fillets. Only one out of 6 guys was jigging and i think he was high hook with fish up to 15lbs
