Today on the Patriot we had some spurty bursts of Haddock followed by a steady pick. Everyone wound up with a half dozen Haddock and some cusk mixed in.
Another spectacular offshore trip!
The weather was perfect and the first day on Cashes ledge was action all day long. Last stop produced a nice halibut by a women that said it was her first overnight trip.
The second day on Fippennies started with a beautiful sunrise and was again a nice pic of Haddock and pollock, and cusk. Bunch of nice cod that we released.
Phenomenal is the only way we can describe it. Anchored up at about 4:30 am and didn’t move all day. Waves of Large Pollock and Haddock, many double headers of both. Captain George Schlichte navigated out and anchored up at pre-dawn and we didn’t move. We heard comments like “Best fishing in my life”, “I haven’t seen fishing like this in years”, “Great crew, their earning their money today”, and much more
We were a little apprehensive of the weather but it turned out to be fine day but we did have to slug our way home, and it was all worth it.
