Fishing Reports

1/24 Rhode Island Cod

Capt. Scott 👨🏻‍✈️reported a much different day then yesterday’s excellent bite. We started off seeing a few #fish coming up more shorts on on grounds then we have seen. Lots of #mackerel in the area and good amounts fish under them. We worked a variety of areas with nothing really turning on. At days end, it was slow and the weather just couldn’t get much better.

The weekend weather again looks like a blow out. At the moment, Tuesday looks like the next fishable day. Book tickets 🎫 online at islandcurrent.com 🎣⛴

1/23 Full Boat Codfish Limit

Captain Scott was very happy to report a full boat limit for the sold out crowd today. A special shout out to Joey A. from New Jersey for spearheading the trip! Captain Scott reported a surplus of bait in the area with mackerel and herring and the codfishing was Stellar! It is a very good sign for the winter ahead of us with the abundance of bait in the area and fish chewing aggressively. There were moments during the day that the fishing was savage and then it would stop and turn back on again!

Today both the iron clam and the fresh skimmer clams worked equally as well with one not producing any more than the next. When they wanted to chew and feed it just did not matter the bite was savage!Again, it was a picture perfect day as the weather was pristine and the fishing was on fire 🔥.  

Tomorrow’s forecast looks excellent as it will probably be the last fishable day before the weekend. If you are looking to go out tomorrow please book your tickets online at Islandcurrent.com.

Private charters available both weekday/weekend! Contact Capt. chris at 917.417.7557

Capt. Scott 👨🏻‍✈️reported a picky start to the morning. The weather conditions were absolutely beautiful. The seas were flat and and the wind was calm. Today we anchored and drifted mixing things up a bit. There was definitely a good amount of #fish in the area and loads of bait!  It wasn’t until the latter part of the day that Capt. Scott was able to dial-in on a pile of fish that was actively feeding! Custom rod builder Sean was high hook for the day and it seemed that the iron clam was the most productive today!

1/4 COD ON THE ROD

Capt. Scott 👨🏻‍✈️reported that today’s action was some of the best #cod action we have had this season. Besides the rain and fog the #seas were flat calm and the #fish were chewing.  Capt. Scott reported running over a large body of cod and expertly was able to to #anchor up over them and keep them coming all day.  #Hi-hook was 13 keepers (ORL) as there was many limits and several #anglers dangerously close to their limit.  We had several anglers bail out last minute and missed an amazing trip.
