Young Mr Hart Claims a Keeper Cod

Here we are at the end of August and also the end of our Cod and Haddock season this year. In April the government put up a new ruling that prohibited recreational anglers to possess Cod and Haddock in the Gulf of Maine in September and October.

This is a result of very poor managing by our government who changed the way commercial boat fish three years ago. They allowed them to catch all there fish for the year in one day if they choose. This wiped out the huge stocks of Cod in the gulf of Maine. Now we are all out of business.
I want to thank everyone of you who fished with us this year as well as the ones who have fished in the past years that I did not have room for this year. The fishing was very good all year with a few slow days here and there. On the most part even the experienced ground fisherman had sore arms when the Lisa&Jake tied the lines up at the end of the day.
Lisa would also like to thank all the guests who stayed at Lisa’s Lookout and look forward to seeing you all next season.
The boat will be fishing for Tuna, Pollock. Cusk ,Redfish and what ever else we can catch until the end of the year. I apologize for the lack of weekly reports and picture, The boat was fishing almost every day and left the crew exhausted at the end of the day.

An offshore trip this week landed a nice 180 pound Bluefin Tina for long time clients from NJ. A few years ago these guys landed a 800 pound Bluefin so this one was a piece of cake for John Decker

The fish was just short of commercial size so it was field dressed by mate Jeff to give everyone great bags of sushi and grilling steaks.
On The inshore trips the dog fish killed us this week and then became non existent, we will see how long this lasts,
Still some nice Haddock to be had and a few Cod fish as well as a handful of Cusk for frying.
Ground fish trips are sold out for August and that will be it for the year unless they open it up for Haddock after the new assessments come in, We can be hopeful but im not holding my breath!
A Nice fish for the guys from NJ

Ground fishing continues to be good to great. A 65 pound Halibut came to gaff the other day, Angler Jamie from Long isle new it was not stuck on bottom as the rod would not move and kept thumping. The fish hit a Norwegian jig in 230 ft of water.

A lot of nice Haddock and Cusk have spiced up the catches this week.Some of the big Bull Haddock are still around.
Cod fish are in the Market size but were a little scarce this week compared to earlier.
There are only a couple of openings left in August this year before the unfortunate close to the Cod and Haddock season, If you are thinking about filling the freezer with us this year  there are only 4 open days left Go to the calender at kaymancharters.com for available dates.With not going to be much to report for eight months. So I will do the best I can for the next few weeks until the end of the reports.
After the end of August it will be just Tuna trips, and a few red fish and Pollock trips

Nice Market Cod and limits of Large Haddock continue to make July the best ground fish month again this year! While some tides are a little slow it has ben consistent as the next tide turns the fish turn on! We are seeing limits of nice sized fish, it has been the best we have seen in a couple of years.
On the inside a few Large Bass to 25 -30 pounds were caught on the half day trips, These trips were also spiced up with some nice Cod and Haddock under the Bass! It is amazing the comeback of the Cod and Haddock when the gillnets come to a holt!
The end of August is also the end of Ground fishing this year, Book you fish and stay vacations at kaymancharters.com

 

 

 

 

Last weeks fishing was up and down as the dog fish moved into our grounds to the east, We went a long time this year before we were bothered by the “dogs”. The colder water temps were keeping them at bay. Groups did fish through them to land some nice Cod and Haddocks,but we were forced to move several times.

Later in the week we made a shift closer to home were we found more Cod and less dogs! A winning situation for everyone, last few trips this week anglers have caught their limits of Cod and Haddock!
We hit some of the early Spring spots to be surprised at the amount of fish in these spots!
All hand have been sleeping on the way in after these last few days after hours of non stop cranking!
Not a lot of openings left for this Cod and Haddock season don’t delay and miss out on the action. A fishing trip and a two night stay at Lisa’s Lookout is only $335 ea based on 6 people.
Next Shared trip is July 10 with 4 open spots see Kayman Charters.com for details and reservations.

Gloucester Charter boat Lisa&Jake has been on the Cod,Haddock fishing grounds.

Clients have been into some numbers of big Bull Haddock and some large Market Cod this week.Some nice fish have been coming over the gunwales this week!
Some of the great folks have been enjoying their stay at Lisa’s lookout and having lobster cook outs and using the fire pit to roast marshmallows before getting a good night sleep in the new comfy beds. This is making for a great experience to add to the fishing trip!

The fishing has been mostly on bait with a handful of fish for those who like to bounce a jig. Clam baits are the way to go so far,even when some of the fish have been stuffed with Herring,they prefer the baits.
Coming up this Summer is a lot of overnight safaris, most groups are booking these trips to replace their fall meat run as there is no Cod and Haddock after Aug 31 this year. There is still a lot of weekday safaris available as well as some shared Safari trips.
Next open boat shared trip is June 26

Cod and Haddock trips have been hot this Spring. A lot of small fish mixed in with some nice Market sized fish. The weather has been nice on the days we have gotten out but has kept the Lisa&Jake at the dock a good number of times already.

A new Shared charter page is up and running for those who would like to get in on some of the action.

The government is clamping down on the recreational angler and is going to prohibit Cod and Haddock fishing After the end of August so get your trips in before then!

Here is a short video I put together
