The Month of September has gone by without a lot of action. Ground fish has been closed for the most part, the search for Pollock can be tough while having to release Cod and Haddock.
We are all waiting to see what the council will do with our fishing! It is hard to believe you can not go out in the ocean with a fishing rod and catch a Cod or Haddock to take home to eat!
The latest assessments came in last month and said that the Cod stocks were at 3% of were they need to be. The Haddock assessment came back saying the stock was healthy. Well why cant we go fishing for Haddock was asked to John Bullard, director of Marine fisheries?
It is the potential by catch of Cod that is going to be in control of when and were we can fish for Haddock.
The council met for the last few days and could not come up with an answer and put it in the hands of noaa. Now we must wait to see if they will let us fish or not.
Mean while the Lisa&Jake has been out Tuna fishing, The action should pick up here after the storms go through. We did land a fish about 1000 pounds the other day to get the ball rolling.
November Pollock can be good and have had many request for Shared Charters November 8 will be a Shared trip if you would like to sign up.
