A brace of cod caught aboard the Capt. Al on the weekend. Cod numbers seemed to improve this week off the South Shore and West End.
With herring action mostly disappointing this week, and boats with winter sailing schedules spending more time tied to the dock than fishing due to a steady dose of wind, options for this weekend are limited. The good news is that there have been decent numbers of cod off the West End when the weather cooperates, and if it doesn’t, you can keep busy by attending Striper Day on Sunday at Ward Melville High School. While the weather continues to wreak havoc on sailing schedules, there were a few bright spots on the fishing front this past week. The Capt. Al, Laura Lee Express and Capt. Dave III all found some cod on the weekend, with numbers appearing to be on the increase, albeit those numbers included short fish. Long range tilefish trips are also an option aboard the Atlantic Pearl (Capt. Lou Fleet) this weekend, while the Super Hawk is planning offshore trips targeting cod, pollock and ling, weather permitting. Out east, the Viking Fleet is looking for dropping water temperatures to give the codfishing a shot in the harm, as Saturday saw a decent amount of haddock mixed with a few cod. And for those able to wield a fly rod, trout remain an option in Connetquot State Park Preserve.
