JUNE 13, 2019 - DEADBEAT: A FEW VERY LOCAL COD, LING & JUMBO BERGALL

WE HAD A CREW TRIP TODAY

Image

Even with few if any good local cod reports lately, we decide to leave the dock at 0430 with salted tasty bait and thankfully a few dozen fresh chowders that were hastily picked up from Shoprite. Quick thinking considering that we decided to go at 5 pm the night before as we finally had a reasonable weather window after the blow we've had over the past few days. Nice steam out, but the last ten miles wind was a steady un-forecast 15 mph NE. Not horrible, but not what they promised which goes to show you that the weather has been pretty dicey even with a really favorable forecast 12 hours before leaving the dock.

4-5 miles to go and I see a boat that looks to be dead on the spot, then with another 4 or 5 miles, more appear. Okay just maybe a few day boat scallopers around the wreck but their is one guy who looks dead on it. Last mile and a half, its 'whitesiders' all around us as enough whales that it looked like Stellwagen and all you needed was the whale watch boats. There was also countless tuna chicks and a few busting tuna which would of been a very pleasant surprise for guys looking for some nearshore tuna.

I finally realize that these are all tuna guys and the one I was worried about was a quarter mile east of the wreck but tons of life which is really promising. Thing was that when I looked the wreck over and then around the busted low sections, I see no bait or readings but that's normal there. Were here and its time to anchor up and see if it was worth the ride and getting up at 3:30 in the morning.

Before the anchor is tight we get a 12lb fish. Beautiful golden fish with a bright white belly. Then Immediately wew catch another fish between 5-6 pounds. Alright this is gonna be good with whales all around, dolphins, and a sunfish farting around the boat. Tuna guys all around me too and have broken up yet. I'm psyched. Well that was it with 2 resets, 4 shifts and 2 hours later we've caught 3 or 4 eels, a giant bergall, even hooked a whale behind the boat.I had enough and said to the guys to let's get out of here. By this time the wind laid down some so headed to a shallower wreck which might have a few big ling on it.

Thankfully we picked and plucked another 10 scrod which was a nice amount of fresh cod for everyone to take home as well as a few stud ling. Couple shifts in between before we had enough for more than a few meals and headed home by 1245. Ended with 12 keeper cod, a few really nice size pot belly ling and a stud bergall.

Add some fresh home grown beans and the best chefs in town can’t bring you fish this fresh!
A whole nother level for us who know the difference. ;)

One thing I’ve noticed over the years. The large ling will climb up to a clam bait well off the bottom. ;)
