Posted By Fred Golofaro
Location: Long Island, Metro NY
Last week’s brief warmup did little to trigger much in the way of fishing reports, as wind and rough seas, as well as iced up waterways left few opportunities for boats to get to the cod grounds. A couple of boats did get out last Wednesday and again on Sunday ...
