We had the opportunity to sneak out on a trip, and John and Ed and their group really wanted to give it a shot. Let me start out by saying that the wind this year has been relentless, giving us very few days to try for these crafty bottom feaders. The water temperature is now the coldest all year, with surface temps being very close to bottom temp holding around 39. As many of you know 42 is around the magic number for these fish to chew. Water temp is still to cold closer to the beach, so we headed out to fish some stuff in close to 140ft. These were the results from our trip of a near 30 mile run. 3 togs up to 12 pounds, 1 nice cod, 1 nice polluck, and a ocean pout. Not what I would call a banner day of fishing. When we started we had no current, and a few fish. Then the current began to really run from the North bringing cooler water, and all signs of life were over. I do believe that when the water warms the fish will be ready to eat, but we just have to patiently wait.
