The 76` ISLAND CURRENT III set sail Tues., 2/28 at 6 AM because of the heavy blow. Ca. James was the skipper who reported that although it was alittle naical in the morning, it was “ONE STOP SHOPPING!” Ca. James decribed the day as SUPERB not only with quanity b also quaily. Pool fish today was a hefty pound cod caught by Long Islander, Brian AKA COD-ON-THE-ROD! Congratulations Brian on a true trophy cod! It was also nice to see today a good showing of rather large pollock to 25 pounds.
