Capt. Al

February 9, 2016:
Capt. Tom Weiss of the open boat Capt. Al in Point Lookout said fishing on Saturday was a big improvement over last Tuesday's trip when just a couple of cod came aboard. Most drops produced both cod and ling, with some dogfish and pout mixed in. Best action was in a 100 to 130ft of water. Yet another coastal storm with gale winds means they won't sail Monday or Tuesday. For updates on sailing schedules and the fishing, call 516-623-2248.

    Aboard the Capt. Al in Point Lookout Capt. Tom Weiss told me the past couple of weeks saw decent cod activity with some good days and some tough days. Dogfish were a problem at the outset but they seem to be thinning out. The keeper ratio is a solid 90 per cent and nice size fish to 26-pounds have been swung over the rail. Most cod are in the 5 to 12-pound range. Mackerel have shown up and on one trip anglers who wanted them were able to load up. The cod are readily responding to clams but occasionally jigs will work as well. The boat departs daily at 6:00 a.m. for cod and will be sailing during the winter. Capt. Tom advised that you call him the day before to confirm if the boat is sailing. (516) 361-9275.

    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.
