The Westchester Connection aboard Tuna Hunter Fishing Charters
On Saturday, the early morning drift yielded some cod, this got everyone warmed up. The real action started when Captain Gary Cannell chose to anchor over several hot spots. Fish on! for continuous action for the remainder of the day, given short breaks for laughs and lunch. Cod to 20lbs hit Norwegian jigs, aiming for herring, but hitting the hook and landing aboard Tuna Hunter. Haddock – boatloads of haddock – preferred the clams throughout this weekend. Saturday’s haddock bite was steadier and continued later in the day. The Westchester guys were fishing all day long, reeling all day long, which is what we all aim for.
Typical to all trips in the spring, the breezes offshore and 45 degree water keep it much cooler on the Bank than the 80′s on shore. Bring sweaters, hats, windbreakers, and strong arms. As the water warms up, expect migrating striped bass and eventually bluefin tuna to move into our area.
There is plenty of life out on both Jeffries Ledge and Stellwagen Bank: sand eels, herring, pods of whales. It all looks promising to attract and hold quality fish throughout our summer season.
Friday’s fishing was “ridiculous”, with limits of cod being reached by mid-morning. (current NMFS regulations call for 10 cod per angler; no bag limit on haddock). Anglers were happy to focus on tasty haddock for the remainder of the day.
