Capt. Greg from the Black Hawk reports that on Wednesday, we put in a long one on the water. We had some wind to contend in the morning, and some fish didn’t want to cooperate. We moved around a bit and found a nice pile of sea bass to work on with some pollock, ling, and bergall mixed in. We put in some overtime and made a stop on our way home and hooked up on a bunch of big cod fish at the end of the day. Overall, we managed to get a pretty good day out of it.
Thursday, however….well, there’s just no way to sugarcoat it. We put in a lot of time, made a lot of drifts and dropped the anchor on a few occasions, but the fish just would not cooperate. It was a tough grind that ended with a handful of cod, a few haddock, pollock, and bergal. We had a great group of guys who chartered the boat for their annual fishing trip, and they fished hard and put in the time and effort, it was just one of those days that didn’t work out the way we wanted.
There is plenty of bait in the water, so the stage is set for things to turn around for the better and we will continue to stay on the grind until it does.
We will continue to fish as the weather allows. As always, check our website and Facebook page for updates and info. We wish everyone a very Happy New Year and nothing but the best in 2019!
