Good luck! I'll have to check out the canal one of these days,,, if the tackle box gets a little too heavy and I need to sacrifice some gear to the fish gods.

It'll be hard to keep me home tonight,,, I can almost hear the bassy's tummies growling from here. They're hungry,,, I can feel it.

Not to worry.. lots of cod and haddock.... just use bait... small pieces.. the fish are spawning and are not aggresivly feeding....

well...my first trip for cod and haddock...three of us on the boat...i was the greenhorn....as soon as we hit the ledge..tweedy dropped his clam rig and instantly had a double of haddock...my line went down..and just as i aksed how the bite would feel..the tuggin started...a wolfie...holy friggin ugly..and those teeth are nasty..bill started jigging looking for big cod..he asked and he recieved..not as big as he was looking for but big enough for the bucket...after about a 1/2 hour the seas picked up a bit 2-5' mixed swells....shortly after that i learned what it means to be the newbie..i starded the chum slick and had to put down my rig for a bit..a few of you know what that means... the bite slowed, we moved, found some more action a bit closer to the shore...we saw mackeral pod after mackeral pod busting all over too at one point..i was thinking stripers when i saw that. the fishing was slowing down so we started back, stoping every now and then when we saw the bait stacked up on the screen..a few more here and there on the way in...i had a blast...more ways than one..its now hours later and i still feel drunk....over all it was a good day..i finally was ble to put some fish in the freezer and test out my newly modified drag on my abu 7000...my nuts were cracked many a times as i chummed..i actually found it funny myself..good times good people good fishing...no work...thats what i call a good finish to a frustrating weekend...

we worked our way in and thats when bill got the biggest one...about 15lbs...we were about 7miles our or so at that point, the macks were all over when we started cleaning the fish...a more desireable chum than what i had offered. i should have asked you sooner, we may have had a better chance of a whale..god times anyway..tonight..a little assorted seafood spread for dinner...and this weekend i see a chowder in the horizon....now the striper bug has stuck me with its venom..and im on the hunt...its time to get serious...

saturday morning the family went to salisbury...the fishing lasted all of ten minutes as the kids were too busy wanting to go in the water and play with the baby crabs...so i packed up the rods and over to the beach we went..at least little maggie was able to get a line wet........oh and she got a shark at the bait shop.....a great white even.
