Fri 3/5
It was a rough snowy start for Rocky Demato and pals as they headed out of Snug Harbor for some cod fish action. First drift was a pick then Captain Joel anchored up and it was lock and load. Awesome action with over 120 fish hitting the deck by 9:30 AM. The largest cod tipped the scales at 26 pounds and Ralph landed a nice 15 pound double header. Great day and back to the dock early!

Waiting list only for Mon 3/8 open boat, 1 spot left on Wed 3/10 and limited avail left on Sun 3/14. Next Open Boat trips are Mon 3/15, Wed 3/17 with others added as available. Call the office today to secure your spot or to book a private charter for your group. 860 739-1882

Sat 3/6
Picture perfect day for Tim Norton and gang for a private Charter aboard Sea Otter IV. The cod did not disappoint! Non-stop action from when we first dropped anchor. Fished clams in 145' of water. Double headers were common with "Pasta" boasting at least a dozen. Jerry from McPhee Electric scored the pool with a 19 pounder. 15 anglers had their limit by 8:45 AM. Awesome!

Sun 3/7
Tom Valyo and his CT friends headed up to Snug Harbor to check out the cod bite on a Sea Otter IV Private Charter. It was a tougher morning but good improvement by midday. Combing drifting, anchoring and using clam bait the gang nailed close to 85 keepers. Jim took top honors for the day holding first, second and third place honors courtesy of his 18, 16 and 14 pound cod.
