Cod Slaughter 2010

Post by Tuna Hunter on Mon May 24, 2010 1:33 pm

Went out Saturday Cod fishing on the Skip-a-Dory with my favorite captain, Chuck DiStefano. Left the dock around 3:40 heading north towards Salem. Once we got there and put our lines in the water, it was on. Conservatively we caught 50 keeper Cod with many fish over 10lbs and 5-6 over 20lbs. We also picked up 10 Haddock mixed in with the Cod. Just for a cherry on top we stop on the way in and fished for an hour and added 4 keeper Flounder. RNA Chuck upgraded the boat. More room on the inside, a legit bathroom, and new electonics, but he didn't lose much space on the deck. Here are a couple of pics

Nice fish! Chuck is definately one helluva good captain. He knows how to put people on the fish. I'm jealous, especialy since my truck is still in the shop, my schedule sucks, and the fish are really starting to bite. Keep posting!

I used two setups this year for Cod. A Shimano Trevala Jigging Rod with a Avet SX 2 Speed spooled with 50lbs Suffix Braid. That's my light tackle jigging setup. For bait I use a Diawa Saltiga rod and an Avet JX spooled with 65lbs Suffix Braid. I love jigging for Cod, when your on top of a big school of Cod nothing is better.

Went down to NJ to do some bottom fishing this weekend aboard the Hyperstriper with Capt. Pete Wagner. As always Capt. Pete put us on the fish. We caught a mixed bag of Sea Bass, Blackfish, Cod, Flounder, and Hake. I caught is large sea bass in the 4 lbs range and my cousin caught a flounder that can in at 3 and half lbs. The freeze on Sea Bass last season seems to have help. We probably caught 60 to 70 fish with half of them being keepers. Now all we need to do is put a freeze on commercial Tuna fishing for a year.

Started out on the Housie Friday evening for a low tide scouting trip. First the area for the first time last Monday, and wanted to get a better idea of the layout. Put in at Stratford. Didn't realize the launch was not state owned and picked up a nice $100 fine for not having a town permit. Won't be putting in down there any more this year. Better for wading than using my little boat anyway. Not worth the hassle of trailering down there. Went out Sunday from Stonington with Jack Balint who runs The Fish Connection in Preston. We fished the reefs from Sugar in to Fishers. No winches and broomsticks, all light tackle. G. Loomis and Shimano 8-17lb., 7'ish rods, 12-16lb. mono. Makes a 15lb. bass seem like a lot of fight. Kept 2 nice bass in the low 30's for fillets. Had a total of six, and about as many broke off or spit the hook. Jeff had a handful as well, so it was a pretty fun day.
