Capt. Tom Weiss of the open boat Capt. Al in Point Lookout said they were able to get out on Friday and the cod fishing was much better than the last couple of trips. Most fares ended up keeping a couple of cod from 5 to 10 pounds apiece. Stan, who was high hook with four keepers, was spraying his bait with Gulp herring scent. As an added bonus the mackerel were pretty thick on every drop and triple headers were common. A few herring were also in the mix, as were a couple of blackfish which were promptly released unharmed. They are scheduled to sail every day at 6 a.m. Reservations are not required.For updates on sailing schedules and the fishing, call 516-623-2248.
