MAR 30, 2019 - LADY MERRILEE AT EASTMANS DOCK: WHAT AN OPENING DAY ON REDFISH

Postby EC NEWELLMAN » Sat Mar 30, 2019 10:17 am

Thanks to Mark FISHARK of FISHARK ADVENTURES who not only passed along the pictures but a report about one of the best opening day starts to a fishing season at EASTMAN'S DOCK.

We had so many haddock on the 1st drop that Captain Phil had to move the boat, and this wasn't a haddock drop! Well over 2500 and possibly closer to 3000 Reds for 60 anglers with some very big Reds in the mix. There was also a number of wolfish which were returned, no doubt caught when fishing on the craggy bottom and a bonus of probably 150 to 200 cusk and some of those 'other' fish that they say are not around. Fishing was so hot and heavy with rods bending from right when the whistle blew until everyone had more than enough and wanted to go home! What a day!


I just have to ask that Mark said that the crew started cutting at just before 10 in the morning and had a few captains who were onboard join in at the cutting table to help, and were still cutting a few hours after coming in, and this was at 5 or so in the afternoon.

According to Captain Phil yesterday was even better but had to move away a few times from the ferocious packs of 4 to 8 lb Haddock

Wow!! What a catch. My hands are starting to tingle just thinking about cutting that many red fish. Some tasty dinner right there. Glad to see people enjoying the GOM fishery despite cod being closed!
