HEAT WAVE COMING

Posted By Toby Lapinski
Location: New England
As I type this, word is spreading of a late-February heat wave in New England in the form of the possibility of 70-degree temperatures by mid-week. This comes on the heels of a little snow storm that dropped 3 to 5 inches of wet snow over the weekend, so it ...

TOUGH WEEK o’ FISHIN’

Posted By Toby Lapinski
Location: New England
Aside from a few standouts including improved holdover striped bass action and a little isolated cod success, fishing was tough this past week. The cod, for the most part, turned off the feed with far more slow trips than hot ones. One boat did manage an excellent trip over the ...

RIDE THAT ROLLERCOASTER

Posted By Toby Lapinski
Location: New England
A “rollercoaster.” That is the best way to describe what we have been seeing for fishing this winter. There have been extreme highs and lows on the cod grounds, and ice fishing, too, has been up and down with no indication of what might be waiting around that next corner. ...

Location: New England
Yes, that is a reference to a 1-hit wonder of the late 1980’s. I’ll go sit in my corner for a few minutes for making the reference, but at least I’ll be chuckling as I go! Anyway, on the fishing front, freshwater fishing is the biggest game in town with ...

COLD AIR, HOT FISHING!

Posted By Toby Lapinski
Location: New England
This was a week of extreme opposite for local fishermen. On the one hand, if you enjoy fishing for cod in the winter months then the last few days have not been pleasant. A few boats were able to sail in frigid weather before the big snow storm, but more ...

THE ICE IS NICE

Posted By Toby Lapinski
Location: New England
Unless you’ve been hiding out in your basement, or visiting a friend on a tropical island, then you know that we’re stuck smack dab in the middle of some darn cold, arctic-like weather across all of New England. For the better part of a week the daytime temperatures in most ...

FISHIN’ THE HOLIDAYS

Posted By Toby Lapinski
Location: New England
 The fishing has been as varied in recent days as the weather. Where we saw everything from unseasonably warmth to sleet, freezing rain or snow, the fishing too was hot and cold. The week began off about as good as it gets for cod off Block, but with a change ...

ICE IS FORMING!

Posted By Toby Lapinski
Location: New England
I am not one who needs to be the first person out on the ice each winter. More appropriately, I like to be somewhere around the 25th or maybe even the 30th guy walking out onto my local frozen hot spot. Many years ago I broke through the ice by ...
