Comments

B-Fast's "Haley-Elizabeth" and "Decisive" fished this past weekend (3/20-21) finding the fish in the deep water east of the bank. The best fishing was in 250-270 feet using jigs and teasers, as the fish are feeding on herring and sand-eels. Most of the fish have been mediums and scrod between 6 and 15#. The "Robby Banana" charter from Fire Island, NY, posted one of the best trips of the season on Sunday, filling the coolers with nice sized "market" cod and a pool- winner of 24#. Windy conditions have been a major problem so far this season, limiting trips to only a couple per week. It appears that we are in store for another Nor'easter this weekend.
