May 1st Fishing Report

Headed out to Stellwagon with long time regulars Sue, Dan, Carlene, Chip, Lisa and Terry. You could not ask for better day to be on the water as it was just as calm as could be. Hit the Cod grounds to find a fleet of 100 or so boats and Nets everywhere, boy did that change things quickly as the easy lock n load fishing was today a slow pick, we did manage quite a bunch of nice market sized Cod but really had to work for them, the crew was great as its alot of work to keep picking up and moving to stay on the schools. Later in the day we decided to take a run to the North with. We hit a couple of spots with limited results. Packing it up and heading in I noticed a little hump on the chartplotter about halfway to home so we made a quick stop there and 'Bang' hit em good, nice sized Cod and some of the largest Haddock I have ever caught before, that stop ended the trip on a very positive note. Great day on the water with a fun bunch to take out.
