Despite the shut down of cod and haddock in the Gulf of Maine. Capt. Rob had a pretty good day catching pollock, cusk, and a bunch of big red fish.
The final day of keeping haddock and cod went out with a very good trip. More of those big haddock, cod, and cusk. Even a few nice pollock. We will be heading to Georges Bank on Friday 9/5 there is still room available. Call for details.
Capt. Rob reported a very good day of fishing. Those with experience did very well while others struggled. More nice cod, and haddock and some large pollock made for a good day.
Captain Rob reported that they picked away at the fish all day. Again more haddock than cod. Mostly on bait.

Although the Gulf of Maine is closed to cod and haddock as of September 1st. Yankee Fleet and M/V Yankee Freedom are Coast Guard approved to run the 140 miles to George’s Bank. We are very excited to run this trip.

Capt. John reported that the trip was good. More cod and cusk were caught. They couldn’t seem to find any piles of the big pollock they were looking for. Most of the trip was drifting. The deeper water was holding most of the fish. Some people caught more fish than others. Nobody seemed dissapointed.
A pretty slow day of fishing today. Got some haddock and a few cod, but the bite never turned on.
