WINTER OPTIONS

Posted By Toby Lapinski
Location: New England
It’s been an odd winter to say the least so far. December had a really cold shot to start things off, but by the time we hit the new year we settled into a pattern of unseasonably-warm weather coupled with wind when it was cold. None of this is good ...

MERRY FISHMAS!

Posted By Toby Lapinski
Location: New England
It was a rather slow week of reports following some windy and cold weather the last few days. The cod boats found mixed results over the weekend—some did well while others just ok—but they all saw lots of promise with schools of mackerel on the increase and lots of “life” ...

ICE IS NICE

Posted By Toby Lapinski
Location: New England
With somewhat poor weather the past few days, the cod and blackfish boats have had a tough go at it. Friday saw some ok catches in rather “nautical” weather with cod to 20-plus pounds boated, but the weekend was pretty much a wash. Holdover stripers continue to cooperate, with tidal ...
