Heather from the Black Hawk office reports that Friday, January 13, saw stiff NW winds that made for less than ideal conditions for drifting, making the fishing a little tough. We put in a lot of overtime to make sure everyone came home with some cod. Saturday was a different story, a perfect weather day with ideal drifting conditions, which resulted in much better fishing than Friday. Minutes into the first drift there were double headers coming over the rails. The trip remained a steady pick all day with everyone going home with cod in their coolers. Stay tuned to Facebook for updates and reports.
We’ll continue to fish on Saturdays and Sundays, with some weekday trips when we can, all leaving from Stonington at 5:00 am. As usual, these trips are all weather dependent, and reservations are required. Call the office at 860-448-3662 to grab a spot on board.
