Cod Fishing Report

Sept 25 2009
The Tuna bite slowed up a bit this week so we focused on the spectacular Ground fishing. Nice sized Cod to 35lbs were jigged up this week on spots from Tillies bank to Stellwagon. Limits were not a problem each day as any fish that had to be measured was discarded to make room for the larger ones. Still only a handful of Haddock being brought up on the jigs. The bait has not been the choice by of anglers after the great jig action. A few wolf fish and Cusk have also been in the mix.
The visiting Blue Sharks are still making there appearance. Many of them are striking the Cod as they are being lifted from the water. This is definitely a surprise even for the mates when there is no warning that a large toothy critter is looking for your dinner.

Tuna and Cod Report

Despite the lousy weather this week the boats did fish a couple of days. There was scattered Tuna on the day we got out. Capt. Rob on the Kayman Too did manage to sneak one out between a parade of boats one day. The fish was 54 inches, one of the smaller ones.

Ground fish seems to be lighting up as fall nears and the weather cools. A good number of healthy sized Cod were caught just east of the thirty fathom ledge. The cod were hitting jigs and bait but the all the prize Haddocks were hooked on a bait rig.

Capt Rob made a note in his log book that was large enough for me to see while on the dock. It said NO DOGS! Again this week they were very scarce

Tuna and Cod trips will continue into the early part of October then the boats will be taking the Ground fish guys out to fill there freezers for the winter.

These trips have been filling in quick! Check the calender on kaymancharters.com and hold your spot today.

Cod and Tuna Report

Sept 4 2009

The boats have been Cod and Haddock fishing east of Stellwagon all last week. Bait and jigs have been yielding Cod to 30 lbs with a good number of fish in the 10 lb range!
Large Haddock have also been in the mix. a 8 lb Haddock has been common and will fill fish totes quickly, Dog fish have been not a problem as only a handful of these protected specie have been carefully released each day. It is a pleasure to be able to bait for Haddock again, hopefully it will last!
Tuna have been gain busters on some tides and non existent on others. There are tens of thousands of Tuna chasing bait from right outside Gloucester to 30 miles plus offshore. being in the right place at the right time will ensure a battle of a life time as these hearty fish will put any angler to the test!
If you are into Sharks than you want to go fishing now! There are Threshers, Makos,Whites and the more abundant Blues roaming the Cape Cod bay and Gulf waters. All the trips last week ran into Sharks at least once during the day.
