As I write, the cod have already started to move inshore on the fall migration as the lobsterman are starting to catch them in their traps. Based on our excellent spring season which brought increases in numbers and size of cod, pollock catches that were the best we've seen in years, and haddock being caught with surprising regularity, we are anticipating an excellent fall and winter on the bank. As a result, we will have two charters vessels available starting in late October running throughout the winter. Staring in March, we will employ as many additional vessels as needed to supply the demand for charters. Check out our previous spring reports on the bank located on this site.
