On Thursday 4/15, Capt. Al on the JANET B and Capt. Scott on the DECISIVE started out fishing the the shoal-water. Al's group, a return trip for the John Antosik charter of Manchester, CT with fill-in angler Dave Prior of Natick, MA, worked the shoals most of the day filling the coolers with scrod and medium-sized cod. Scott led the Mike Ajello group from Staten Island,NY,to the deep-water east of the Bank and into some larger market-cod with a few in the twenty pound class. On Saturday, 4/17, B-Fast's JANET B, DECISIVE, SASHAMY, And HACKER left early to beat the minus new-moon tide run-out. Yours truly led the way for the annual 3-boat cod safari with the Art Kelly/Terry Mullin group for Rahway, NJ. Fish were all over the bank as well as in the deep- water. We opted to fish the deep-water and found mostly medium cod and a few pollock mixed in. Six fish over twenty pounds came over the rails in the first two hours with Joe Holley's 28# winning the pool. This was Joe's first cod trip and the best for the Rahway boys in years. We have a couple of dates available for fill-ins and we are working on two mid-week dates in May for "Make-up" charters. http://www.spav.com/progc/bfast/
