On Saturday the 13th, the Steve Kaufman of Marlboro,NJ/Donny Ibarguen of Sayreville,NJ "make-up" charter fished on the bank and east of Stellwagen in the deep-water. In the shoal-water the group found an abundance of sand eels and schools of small pollock and cod feeding voraciously. Although the rod were bent-over continuously, few keepers were coming over the rails. As a result, B-FAST's Capt. Scott headed the DECISIVE to the deep-water. There, the group got into a good mix of market cod (medium) to 15 pounds, pollock to 10 pounds and some nice sized haddock, all on jigs and teasers. The rather mild fall weather and very limited pressure on the cod since the spring has all the makings of a great fall/winter cod season. B-Fast will have 2 vessels running throughout the winter season.
