Cod season started up today

The Cod season started up today and the reports were that the fish were scattered all over the place, but not in big schools. The boats that went out today all got cod, but not in the numbers like we are used to. Some haddock could be found out on the Eastern edge as well as Red Fish in the deeper water. The mackerel were all over Stellwagon Bank which mean they should probably be off our coast by the weekend. I will be heading out tomorrow to see what we can find..

  1. I WAS ALL OVER THE SOUTH END OF STELLWAGEN TODAY. USING NORWEGIAN JIGS WITH TEASERS AND CLAMS. LOTS OF MACKEREL, BUT NOT ONE COD. WHERE SHOULD I LOOK?

    • Although we saw Whales and Dolphins feeding on the South End, we found no Cod under them. This was a few days ago but we had better luck going East. East of the BE buoy. We were able to get some Cod and Haddock but nothing great. The draggers killed it over the Winter. Heading out again this weekend and going to try the West Edge.
