More bait...bait...whales...I love the spring. It used to mean cod and haddock in shallow water. Yes, reports are that Stellwagen is holding spring fish again after the Catch Shares Fiasco in 2011. Long story, but the pollock fishing is getting better. It was a slow start, first trip out was a ton of little fish... Yesterday, the fishing was much better. Still a lot of shorts, but plenty of keeper fish to erase all of my fingerprints on the fillet table. It was good to have a fresh fish fry again. No sharks this time, but we were ready with two Okuma Makaira 50's in the water the whole day.

I will be out there when the weather is good....and then I'll be in Buzzards Bay targeting porgy/scup this spring. Such a cool fishery that is. Bring the trout rods and prepare to laugh as you double up on those sweet fish. Until then see you out on the water!
