Today, 1/1/12 we left Snug Harbor, RI at 5 AM oard the 76` ISLAND CURRENT III with a decent crowd of anglers. Worked the same grounds we have been fishing for the past week and had a slow pick of cod all on the drift. Then decided to steam further to the east and we had a more steady pick of cod. Everyone went home with fish and the hi-hook of the day was Cis from NY with 5 keepers. Today, pool fish was 11 pounds and most guys had a couple of green cod per man. As in the past five trips, the jigs have been producing more cod than the bait. There were lots of mackerel and even a few nice baseball bat whiting. The conditions all look very promising with temperatures dropping and a surplus of bait in the area.

Since the bite has been mostly during the day, we will continue to sail at 5 AM until we feel an early departure time will be more productive.

The next two days looks to appear to be blow os, with the Gale force winds predicted. We are setting up to sail Wed. at 5 AM oard the ISLAND CURRENT III. To purchase tickets in advance please contact our ticketing company ZERVE at 212.209.3370 or book online at htt//
