Heather from the Black Hawk office reports that we did get out the last few days, but the fishing wasn’t what we hoped for. Saturday had some of the best weather we could ask for, but the fishing wasn’t as good. We had lots of short cod, but the big fish just didn’t want to bite. We moved around quite a bit, and did have ling, bergals, sea bass, and pollock mixed in with the keeper cod we did get. Overall, it was not the bite we left before the recent storms.
Sunday was tough. You know us- we’ll tell it like it is, and Sunday was a tough day. We made a bunch of moves on some different grounds, but nothing was cooperating. We marked plenty of life on the bottom, but the fish just didn’t want to chew. We were able to pick away at a few keeper cod with some ling and bergals, but it was a tough grind.
The boat is headed out again Monday, and we will post a report after that, so stay tuned. We hope to get out a few more times before the end of the year, as long as Mother Nature cooperates. We will post these trips on our website and Facebook, so check there and join us soon.
The Black Hawk crew would like to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas. We’ve said it before, we have the best customers around, and hope that everyone has a happy holiday. We look forward to seeing you soon!
